Q&A: A documentarian working in virtual reality
Oscar-nominated documentarian Danfung Dennis believes the next evolution in filmmaking will be to surround viewers with images in 360 degrees -- directly on their noggins.
Dennis, whose gripping 2012 film "Hell and Back Again" told of a soldier's battle with post-traumatic stress disorder, is creating his next film project especially for the Oculus Rift, a virtual reality headset still in development. The device provides wearers with an immersive, wrap-around view that doesn't make them queasy.
So far, the prototype technology has mostly been tinkered with by video game developers and is a year or two away from being available to consumers.
