Where do we begin?
We start by setting up a meeting and then listening to the projects intended idea. Then we will under your guidelines come up with the best plan of action. Which means we usually start with storyboarding and then move forward with production.
What should I think about?
Not every project is suited to be a 360-project. We often get requests from clients that already have a very set idea in mind and have in the last minute decided that they would like to create it in 360. This is usually not a good approach as when you create a 360-video you want to have that in mind from the earliest stages. It’s hard converting a normal video story to a great 360-story.
Is 360-videos expensive?
This question is of course very hard to answer as it comes down the project in mind. 360-video is generally in the same or in the slightly higher price range as a normal video production, but of course it will all come down to the project. One step that used to be very time consuming and took up a lot of budget was stitching the 360 videos (the process of putting together all the individual camera feeds into a single 360-video file), these days the stitching is a lot better due to better softwares and years of experience.
Distribution, how do people watch 360-videos?
Almost all modern mobile phone and browsers have 360-video support these days. This means that almost everyone can experience the video inside their phone or on their computer. There are several ways of distributing a 360-video. The most common are on video websites like YouTube or Vimeo. Facebook has been one of the big players pushing for 360-video and you’ve most likely seen a few (maybe even ours) come up on your Facebook news feeds.
But a 360-video can also be viewed in a headset. Here it comes down to which platform you choose and how you want to reach your audience. We’ve worked with almost every platform and know how to optimize your video to reach the right audience.
