JOMC 491: 954 360 Video Storytelling

Feb. 17– March 3, Sundays, 1-6 p.m.
Alan Eno | 1 credit hour

This course focuses on storytelling with 360 video. Storytelling with traditional video is simple: Point the camera at a scene that tells part of your story. If you want your viewers to focus their attention on another activity or area, you re-frame the camera and viewers are looking where you want them to. How do you do this with 360 video, a format where the viewer can look anywhere at any time? How do you redirect the viewer’s attention to the appropriate location at the right time? These are the types of questions we will explore.
