The Polar Sea – A 360° Documentary Shot in the Arctic

At our conferences we always strive to  present you outstanding projects and to foster the exchange of ideas and inspiration with the people working at the leading edge of 360° imaging and filming.

Today it is IVRPA’s great pleasure to announce that award winning filmmaker and multimedia producer Thomas Wallner will be with us in Las Vegas and give us a talk about his latest project and his views on the future of 360° video.

I will give an overview of DEEP’s latest project THE POLAR SEA, which meets the challenge of telling a documentary story with 360 video both on the web and in VR. This elaborate high end project was shot in Iceland, Greenland and the Canadian Arctic and features some never before captured 360 footage. I will discuss the challenges of production and the necessary evolution of a new aesthetic language for a new medium.
