A year after working on BUCLE, my first big project that used 360 video as a tool, I had the chance to collaborate with Tenerife Water Council to create a larger more ambitious project under the media producer Hydrogram, a long-term collaborator of mine.

 

The last trimester of 2017 was spent developing the idea and envisioning how to transmit it. We chose to use a GoPro 360 Fusion system, which shot in 8K and allowed for crisp 2D surrounding video in low light. Rafael Fenoll, an engineer that had worked on the island for a long time, was our guide. In the film, he comes with us and guides through the different parts of the water gallery.

An event was organised in Teatro Leal (La Laguna), which invited guests to celebrate the importance of water mining in the island.

 

In addition to being distributed online via the client's website, a 360 stand was prepared for Water Day, with 30 3D headsets playing a shortened version of the movie.

 

Entirely prepared and built by me, this stand was placed in the anteroom of the theatre and guests were invited to explore the underground water gallery using the devices. After this, visitors enjoyed a play on the topic of water production by Cirilo Leal.

Additionally, promotional videos were created and distributed, all following the style used in the 360 movie.
