In a previous post we talked about the amazing use case of immersive media for creating empathy. We referenced the Clouds Over Sidra video that was created by VR company Verse to help draw the attention of large companies and potential supporters to a location they were looking for funding in. They did this with an amazing VR video that allowed viewers to better identify with the needs of the cause.
Today we are featuring a similar use case but this time by a Bublcam owner who is using immersive media to educate around their initiative. The organization Sight to Sky provides low cost, high impact primary healthcare to remote mountain communities. They used a Bublcam to capture educational videos in the locations where they are offering their services, take a look:
This video was embedded on the organization's website in a blog post they created and they use it today to introduce potential volunteers to the environment they would be helping in. They’ve also shared this video with their community on Facebook.
The takeaways for our Bublcam owners and anyone considering purchasing one given these examples are the following:
1. If you are trying to recruit volunteers or supporters for any cause or charity, a spherical video can provide an invaluable first hand experience
2. Overlaying strong audio to your a bubl video can give a distinct clarity to your message
3. Spherical videos can be used simultaneously for promotion, education and to generate buzz on social communities
We hope you’ll take a look at the Sight to Sky project and consider using bubl videos to help out your social cause soon.
