This was so much fun to do! 360 degree video is a new technology which allows you to record an entire room by capturing video in every direction. It uses a camera with two lenses facing in opposite directions to capture the video and special software to stitch the video files together in order to create a spherical video shape. It's an amazing bit of kit, thanks go to Rich Lyman for the help and for recording the video!
After a bit of organisational difficulty and with the help of Jason Loftus of NG Digital, we finally managed to arrange to use The Loft House in Nottingham to shoot the video. It's got a really cool old look to it, with the white walls and bare timber floors it was a great choice of location. After their previous appearance on The Proc-Cast, 'The Wild Man Of Europe' were first in line for the 360 video treatment and they also did a fantastic job of getting in, setup and out again on a really tight timeline.
Check out the YouTube upload of the video below, when you're watching it you can either swivel your screen around to change the angle on a phone or tablet, or use your mouse to click and drag on a computer. The beauty of it is that you can watch it 10 different times and still not see the same video twice!
