Description: Skydiving, aerobatics, sunrise flights! Experience the adrenalin loaded daily live of three extreme athletes in the immersive 360° film format. Ready for take off? Into the Sky documents the passion of a paraglider, an aerobatic pilot and a parachutist in 360°: Risking their lives during breathtaking manoeuvres. Experience the film in the innovative 360° format from the first person view with spatial audio and maximum immersion. In addition to the linear film, an interactive version which can be experienced with an app has been published. In this version, the user can influence the course of the story or simply change the camera’s perspective. A highlight in the interactive version is triggering the parachute jump. An interaction must be carried out at the right time which contributes to increased tension. If the user interacts wrong he is thrown back in the plot.

Review: There is a very good reason no-one has done this sort of 360 video experience before and that is because its so nauseating it is almost self-harm to watch it! While I have no doubt it is amazing to do it, watching it in a 360° video format isn’t and all I can say is that I am glad this is free because then I would have really hated upon it. If you like this sort of thing or have a dream one day of doing extreme adrenaline filled things like sky diving or stunt plane flying this might be for you. Just be aware it is not half as much fun to watch as I suspect it is to do in real life.
