MediaMonks participated in the Creative Holland Delegation that visited the NEXT Conference in Hamburg. Chrys Byrne presented their innovative VR Project for Etihad.

Filming in VR is a lot more difficult compared to linear production. The production process took more than 5 months to complete, much longer than a TV production (2 -3.5 months). With a VR production you have to do a lot more work in the post-production, in this case it was much more intense when it came to stitching and compositing.

In the case of the Etihad project, it allows you to be in a time or a space where you normally could not be. It transports you somewhere, like in a plain, where you probably never could have been. VR also allows you to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes. If you are present in another world, you will get a deeper level of empathy, is the big idea behind this VR campaign.
