Partnering with Portland-based agency, The Program, this summer, I field produced and edited a 360 virtual reality experience Ledlenser to showcase their new headlamp at the 2016 summer Outdoor Retailer trade show. This project required us to shoot entirely in transitional light within a very short time frame, which pushed our crew logistically. It was great to problem solve and strategize how to best show off this incredibly powerful headlamp in creative ways – we had a perfect location in Hood River’s Post Canyon and really awesome riders who were willing to push the boundaries to get the shot. We worked with a new rig – the Radiant Images Dark Corner rig, which handled the low-light and showed off the product really well. It was also great to work with a commercial client on a VR experience and see the possibilities for how this new technology can be utilized commercially.
The experience is now publicly available on Jaunt – try it on the Jaunt app or watch it here: for best results, watch on your mobile device and hook up to wifi first, then select the option for highest quality.
