Virtual Reality technology has enjoyed another marked resurgence over the past couple of years, with a lot of focus on its application for video gaming purposes. An equally important application is for film, or any other audiovisual content that can be enhanced through the use of VR.
Deep VR, Africa’s most experienced cinematic VR production company, has launched the world’s first narrated VR wildlife documentary titled Exodus: The Great Migration. It takes viewers on an immersive, 360 degree tour of one of Africa’s most unique wildlife phenomena: the annual wildebeest migration in the Maasai Mara in Kenya.
The Deep VR team recognises Africa’s potential for exceptionally unique content, given the natural environments on the continent, and one of their inspirations for the Exodus documentary was creating a uniquely African experience.
With the expansion and adoption of VR technology increasing, hopefully we’ll see more of Africa and Southern Africa’s treasures explored this way. If you’d like to find out more about Deep VR and the Exodus documentary head over to their site and check it out!
