How it's done.
Shooting the 360° raw footage is just a small portion of the complete process. The real magic takes place in the editing room. It's here where we artfully craft each transition between takes, add color correction, titles, tags, and recreate the story board our client had pre approved. Below are the steps.
360˚ VIDEO PLANNING
The thing to remember is because 360° filmmaking is on the cutting edge--everything is different. The planning, the story board, the direction and choreography. Why? Mainly because there are no camera angles--it's all seen. We know what it takes to produce quality 360° virtual reality videos and pour all our talent into each production.
360˚ VIDEO PRE-PRODUCTION [Storyboard]
Taking into consideration all the aspects of your project, we choose the right equipment to complete the task at hand. Then, we use our imagination and innovation to create the most unique storyboard that clearly and accurately tells your story.
360˚ VIDEO PRODUCTION [The Shoot]
Our camera crew and technicians shoot in all directions, monitor on set and make adjustments for the best possible VR visual experience. We can add lighting to boost the production value, or whatever is required. We also record audio for adding in post production.
360˚ VIDEO PRODUCTION [Direction]
On set, or on location we will be on hand to advise what works best for 360° video. Choreographing movement and interaction for 360° storytelling is an emerging art and we work hard to ensure you will get the best from your shoot.
360˚ VIDEO PRODUCTION [Stitching]
We stitch all the separate 360° videos together for uploading to 360° platforms such as YouTube and Facebook. However, all 360° virtual reality video ar best viewed in custom cardboard VR goggles, or Samsung Gear VR headsets.
360˚ VIDEO PRODUCTION [Audio Post]
This is the process where music is added or composed. We can also add a voice over which lends itself well in VR 360˙ video. If your shoot required a 360° spatial audio sound track, we build an audio soundscape.
360˚ VIDEO PRODUCTION [Editing]
We edit and arrange shots and composite any computer generated elements whilst monitoring in a 360˚viewer. This editing process lets you craft the message and the journey to take the viewer on.
360˚ VIDEO PRODUCTION [Mastering]
This is the final process where we adjust the color and do any fine tuning before we prepare the production for delivery to the client.
360˚ VIDEO PRODUCTION [Publishing]
We provide files, 360° video players or virtual viewing devices (branded cardboard) to view the finished product. We can upload to YouTube or to Facebook so that you can share a post using the 360˚ video in your own posts. We can also set up the client with Samsung Gear VR headsets and provide expert training to all your in-store personnel on how to fit and operate the headsets for the best VR experiences your customers can have.
