Hero Film was one of the first production companies in South Africa to produce professional 360 degree videos way back in the early days of Virtual Reality. We’ve continued to keep abreast of the rapid changes in the field and have likely produced more 360 degree videos than any other production company locally. There are many factors which need to be borne in mind when producing virtual reality or 360 degree video projects – not least of which is camera placement and movement. The execution needs to be based on how the final product will be viewed and by what type of audience. How a 360 video is produced for VR headsets (by far the best way to experience them) will be slightly different than if they are just viewed on social media or on individuals cellphones. We have seen a huge spike in interest in 360 videos and it looks like the trend is really gaining momentum now.
