  1. 1. VR Journalism THE TOW CENTER, FRONTLINE, and SECRET LOCATION a demo of live action documentary VR.
  2. 2. Framing A need to align form with the capacity, constraints and needs of journalism. New Technical requirements New Narrative form New forms of Representation
  3. 3. Goals Investigate what’s involved in making this kind of journalism. Better understand the non-fiction storytelling potential of VR. Produce a good work of journalism that affords the audience with a new understanding of elements of the story. Critical reflection on potential
  4. 4. The Story Where could VR add something meaningful to the journalism? The story we settled on was about the spread of Ebola in West Africa
  5. 5. 3 critical moments The tree where Ebola likely jumped from bats to humans. The village where Ebola spread from patient zero to the more. A field hospital, where the slow mobilization of resources was most cruelly felt.
  6. 6. What we found Creative and editorial. A powerful effect of immersion. Important to shoot specifically for VR. The interstitial menu is a crucial framing narrative device. Added layer of interactivity is really important.
  7. 7. What we found Production. The teams are huge, and the budgets are huge. The industry is still developing a production language. Post production, particularly interactivity, is far too cumbersome. The hardware is developing with astonishing pace.
  8. 8. What’s next: The release of the 2D and VR story. The Tow Center report. New Questions: - Newsroom deployment. - Automated post production & interactivity - Experience testing. - Representation, form, knowledge and emotion
