Chernobyl remains one of only two level 7 events on the International Nuclear Event Scale. With the new Chornobyl360 virtual reality documentary about the event. This will be a living documentary, over time the team behind it is hoping to add additional material and with VR technology getting better every day, I’m betting there may also be some enhancement of existing scenes in the future. Some of the new content will be restricted to platforms like Oculus, Playstation VR, HTC Vive. Keep an eye out for their Kickstarter being launched on February 8th.
This will not be your old fashion video documentary. The team behind it is taking full advantage of the documentary being an app.
What is a good documentary without 360 degree drone video? I see a few amazing photos of the exclusion zone in the slideshow below that looks like they shot with their drones.
The team behind this documentary is more than 15 people including Producer Kirill Pokutnyy, Editor Alona Stulii, Sound Designer Evgeniy Vaschenko, to professionals from fields in cinematography and coding. Here is some of the behind the scenes in creating the documentary.
Just to whet your appetite. Take a minute to view the official trailer.
So that you can get a better grasp on the locations of the events until the documentary is available to the public here is a map created by Chernobyl Tour.
If you haven”t had your fill of Chernobyl from that trailer, here is another video to keep you going until the new VR app is released.
