The Power of Immersive Journalism

In this episode of the VRScout Show, we transport you into a few examples of storytelling in VR and the power of immersive journalism.

Creators around the world are working feverishly on projects to bring some of the most compelling stories to light – pushing forward the language and the future of storytelling within this new medium.

From highlighting the impact of a new school in Pencils of Promise, being immersed inside a French migrant camp in Seeking Home, or getting a glimpse into the life of orphaned refugees in The Displaced, film creators like RYOT and Vrse are giving us a sense of true human connection in virtual reality – hopefully igniting individuals to take action and help change the world.

Our hope is that we can help you discover what creators are regularly dreaming up – all while placing you at the center of this content universe and witnessing the future unfold with us.

This episode of the VRScout Show highlights the 360° videos from the following creators:

Pencils of Promise via RYOT

Seeking Home: Life inside the Calais Migrant Camp via AP

The Displaced via The New York Times

Let us know what future stories you’d like to see us highlight in the next episode of the VRScout show.

The VRScout Show is a first-of-its-kind content discovery series that guides you through some of the most amazing stories, creations, distant lands, and new worlds being told in VR from creators like you.

Special thanks to Mettle for the help as well.
