360-degree Video and Photography is coming up in a big way all over the globe, and the booming Washington, DC market it no different. Google Street View has been at the leading edge of 360° Photos for years, while Facebook, Vimeo and YouTube have officially begun supporting 360° Video, and as we all know, Google, Facebook, Vimeo and YouTube have a decent handle on what’s next when it comes to media delivery. In addition to that, Samsung has released their Samsung Gear VR goggles for Galaxy phones that play directly into this style of video content, along with more robust systems like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. For all of these reasons, we here at SkipperFilms have jumped head-first without hesitation into creating such content to perfectly align with our existing video production offerings. Uses could include Real Estate tours to take potential buyers on a home-tour that’s controlled by their head movements, Hospital, Office, or Facility tours to bring potential clients into your business without stepping foot in your doors, or even letting everyone have front row seats at a concert. It definitely doesn’t stop there, the possibilities are endless!
What’s more, is that we offer an extensive package that goes along with this technology, as our services never stop at the bare-minimum. Not only can we capture the 360° VR footage from a traditional tripod, we also have fully invested in making our cameras get up and MOVE! We have a gimbal that’s been re-designed to carry a 360° camera to limit how much of the rig is in the shot, a massive remote controlled rover to carry the camera through spaces without a cameraman in the shot, and even a custom drone mount for aerial virtual reality capture! But in addition to simply capturing the footage, we are fully capable of stitching the 360 degree camera feeds into a spherical field, editing that footage, inserting graphics and motion-tracking logos as if it were any other creative film we create, and then re-embedding the necessary metadata required for YouTube and Facebook. Offering up to 8K Resolutions, 4K live streaming, and even 3D 360 video for the most immersive experience you could ask for, there’s really no limit to how we here at SkipperFilms can help you connect with your audience. I know this sounds like a lot to swallow, just take our technical ramblings as a sign that we know what we’re doing!
Where others hesitate to adapt to the new medium, we feel like this is a perfect opportunity for us to show you all that SkipperFilms LIVES on the cutting edge. Like we said, we’ve jumped head first into 360-Degree video content, and are excited for escorting the Washington DC, Northern Virginia and Maryland area into the next best thing in experiencing the world through creative video!
