IMMERSING OURSELVES IN THE OLD CITY WITH 360* VIDEO
During our time here in Jerusalem, we have spent countless hours in the Old City: immersing ourselves in the colors, sights, sounds, and smells. With 360* video, we are finally able to place you right in the middle of this unique and lively place and show you just how incredible this place is!
Appian Media was created with the goal of brining the stories and the lands of the Bible to life through compelling content that is both Biblically accurate and visually engaging. With that aim, we are always looking for ways to increase the quality of what we produce and find new and innovative ways of brining this content to others. 360 degree video (which allows viewers to watch a recording and look in every direction, through virtual reality googles or simply by moving their mobile devices around to change the view) is not exactly a new technology, but only recently has it become practical and affordable enough for us to consider using.
In addition to capturing some rich new content for the remaining five episodes of the “Following the Messiah” series, we’ve been shooting 360 video of several of the places that we have visited, allowing viewers to explore the location for themselves. Until one is given the opportunity to actually come and visit these places (which we all would strongly recommend), 360 video could be the closest thing to actually being there and we are excited to be able to bring some of these places to life for people all over the world.
