Go Down

A new era in immersive journalism

Hong Kong Unrest is a news documentary filmed in 360-degree video that tells the story of the 2014 pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong. The film breaks fresh journalistic ground by providing a news narrative, on a topic of world importance, using live-motion 360-degree video. It is a format that puts the user at the heart of the action, and enables them to view the footage from any angle.

Hong Kong Unrest was created by Immersivly Ltd, creators of immersiv.ly, an app in development for the presentation of news in virtual reality.
