The power of immersive journalism

Immersive journalism is a novel way to utilise gaming platforms and virtual environments to convey news, documentary and non-fiction stories. But are newsrooms, broadcasters and brands getting to grips with this opportunity?

Cover Raconteur report Virtual Reality
Some of the latest trends in VR journalism are assessed by the media correspondent Ian Burrell in Virtual and Augmented Reality, a supplement published by the Raconteur section of the London Times on 5 October 2016. In Burrell’s article, Louis Jebb, founder and CEO of immersiv.ly, comments on the significance of large publishers, including The New York Times and Facebook/Oculus, recently creating company-wide executive producer roles for the oversight of news and non-entertainment VR content. On the day the Raconteur report was published, this trend was reinforced when The Guardian  announced the formation of an in-house VR news team.

Have you immersed yourself?

Here are three examples of immersiv.ly news documentaries. You can watch them on a browser or, for split screen view in a headset, on the YouTube app.

First up is Hong Kong Unrest, the video that started it all. Filmed in Hong Kong by Edward Miller in September 2014.

In the second video, see how Rio’s resident felt about having the Olympics so close to home. Hear directly from locals about the excitement and challenges of hosting the Olympic Games and get a closer look at Rio de Janeiro.

In the third video, the inspiring LA-based podcaster and entrepreneur Lewis Howes, founder of the School of Greatness business mastermind, explains the principles that helped him turn his life around.
