Here’s why 360 stories matter
Tiny World Productions here -- we’re taking over this week's Keeping Tabs newsletter to highlight some interactive stories on refugees.
Last week, we started releasing our most recent project, The Wait: Inside the Lives of Asylum Seekers in Germany. The Wait is based on interviews conducted in Germany earlier this year. This series tells the stories of asylum seekers through text, animation, interviews and 360 video. The use of 360 video allows viewers to jump into the story and empathize to a greater extent. (Click above on the trailer to get a better sense of our project.)Soon we'll be featured on the 19 Million Project. The Project asks: “How will future generations judge our response to the greatest humanitarian response of our lifetime?” We don’t want to tell future generations that we did nothing. At Tiny World Productions, our goal is simple — to go beyond the numbers and bring the audience into the stories.
Through our research on VR and 360 video we’ve come across many refugee stories. Look below for a few of our favorites.
