360 Video Showcase
Tue 24 January 2017, 13:30 – 16:30 GMT
To celebrate the success of the 360 video workshops held in Inverness, Oban and Lerwick, #hellodigital are welcoming back the businesses which took part to showcase their 360 footage and share their experience using the camera.
This showcase will follow a training session in the morning where 12 new businesses will receive a camera for two weeks. Those also attending the training session will get the chance to see how others have used the cameras and pick up any advice or tips which may help them during their two weeks.
Calum and Niall from CryWorks will also talk about the following topics:
Why use 360 video? We will provide a brief overview of 360 video and photography technology and explain the basic theory involved in shooting 360 video. Side-by-side footage from actual shoots will be used to demonstrate the difference between 360 video & traditional video.
The second session will cover how to shoot, produce and promote your 360 video. We will outline the steps from planning to filming and provide recommended workflow for use with common 2 lens systems. We’ll look – in detail – at some of the current cameras on the market focusing on those retailing £200-350.
