Workshop | 360 Degree Video

Rockefeller Library, Digital Scholarship Lab

We've all seen those cool 360° videos on YouTube, the kind where you can choose where to look as the action is happening all around. The happy surprise is that for all its tech-cool vibe, 360° video is quite easy to create and edit — and all the equipment required to shoot it is available for borrowing on Brown's campus. This workshop will show you how 360° video is shot and edited, as well as think about some of the interesting challenges in creating 360° content. Register here.
