A VR Filmmaker Shares Her Experience

Filmmaker Jessica Brillhart, who is currently working in Google’s VR division, talks to StreamDaily about her lessons learned as she created the VR film World Tour.

“I learned a considerable amount. You start building it out in your head as you film, because at the time there’s no viewfinder – you can’t see what you’re filming. So all you can really do is trust in your experiences,” she says. “Then you start to actually wonder: the more locations you go to, you actually stand in a place and you look around and you start to understand if it’s going to work or not. It’s an intense feeling because you also, in a lot of ways, don’t know if you’re right. I can’t see this experience in a headset; I don’t know what’s happening right now, or if that’s going to resonate. Over time, I felt I started to learn what would resonate the most, and editing was another part of that process. The more I started working through it, I realized all of it is very mental and involves our brains and minds in a really fundamental level.”
