It has been a while since we’ve had a full on 360 degree immersive short on Life In 360°, so why not round off our scheduled videos for this week with one? We’re heading over to PBS Digital Studios for a relatively recent release.
Called My Brother’s Keeper and inspired by PBS’s own drama series Mercy Street, My Brother’s Keeper is a tale of the American Civil War. I’ll let PBS themselves explain…
“It tells the story of two estranged brothers who, fighting on opposing sides of the Civil War, unexpectedly reunite on the battlefield at Antietam. As we walk into battle with Ethan (19) and Jackson (16), we flash back to glimpses of their young lives to understand what has led them to this extraordinary, life-altering moment amid the carnage and brutality of war. The VR short film uses innovative technologies and techniques to create a cinematic experience that brings this pivotal period of American history to life – placing the viewer not only at, but in, the Battle of Antietam.”
You can see the video below. VRFocus will be back on Monday with another 360 degree video.
