Top Five Tips On How To Create 360 Travel Videos

Posted on January 11, 2018 by MichaelaSGuzy

We all know that video is more engaging than a static photo, but imagine being able to share with grandma, the kids, and the neighbor what you actually experienced on vacation. Since YouTube, Vimeo and Facebook have all launched 360 viewing platforms on desktop or handheld devices, we all can literally have a look around, without those crazy looking goggles.

We don’t think 360 will ever replace the transformative experience of actually visiting a new destination with all the sights and smells, or authentically connecting with local people, but it’s about as close as you can get to bringing the destination to life for your audience. Whether you are an arm-chair traveler, debating between which hotel room has the better view of the sea from the toilet, showing your sick dad the spot you used to visit on family vacations when you were a kid or stuck on a never-ending conference call, 360 storytelling will help bring an experience to life in an immersive way for viewers.

You will learn how to:

● Choose the right 360 gear for documenting your next trip

● Understand the difference of 360 resolution vs. HD

● How to: ○ prevent motion sickness ○ Position your 360 camera and yourself ○ share your memories with your friends, followers and social networks.

So who are we? And why would you listen to us in the first place?
