Description: The first collaboration with PBS Frontline tells the story of Kenny Moore, a recently released inmate from the Maine State Prison. Using photogrammetry and volumetric video capture, ‘After Solitary’ allows the viewer to step inside a solitary confinement cell. It premiered at SXSW 2017 and won a Jury Award, and also received the Ars Technica Room-Scale award.




Review: ‘After Solitary’ is a hard one to talk about because there are points for this to exist, but also many will be angry it exists in the first place. In short, this is a 360 video story (non-interactive) about one man’s experience with solitary confinement in prison. Here is the problem with that…this man is and was a convicted criminal. He wasn’t put in solitary confinement for a laugh he very obviously had problems. Putting this argument aside the experience looks good and for those who are interested in it this is worth a look, but do be warned that many of you will hate this with a passion, but at least it is free for you to take a look.
