Virtual reality (VR) production and software development specialist, FluidCast VR, has announced the completion of its most difficult 360-degree video to date. Its a promotional video for Singularity University, a NASA funded global community using technology to tackle the world’s biggest challenges. 

The immersive video is designed to showcase classrooms, labs and a campus tour of Singularity University, located in Moffett Field, California.

Filmed on location at NASA in the hanger and on location at Singularity University, FluidCast VR used a six camera Go-Pro Rig and edited in After Effects and AutoPano Gig and AutoPano Video Pro.

“This was by far one of the most complex virtual reality projects we have ever worked on,” Claudio Lai CEO of FluidCast VR said. “This project featured an elaborate storyboard requiring multiple complex layered motion graphics in 360 VR intertwined with 360 VR footage. This Singularity University project is breaking new ground in virtual reality visual motion effects which will soon become standard practice in virtual reality video advertising as well as instructional videos. We were proud to work on this project with Singularity University, which allowed us to push this new medium to its limits.”
