Caruso Company recently collaborated with Facebook and the Oculus 360 camera team to produce their latest promotional footage shot on the recently announced Manifold Camera. The Manifold is described as “the first studio-ready camera system for immersive 6DoF storytelling, aiming to connect creative professionals with audiences. Caruso was brought on to assist Facebook’s stellar creative team in the creation of a 360 immersive story that included over 20 actors working at a single apartment location all to help showcase Manifold as the world’s first end-to-end solution for 3D and 360 video capture.
Manifold is a single product that redefines immersive cinematography with an all-in-one capture and distribution framework, giving creative professionals complete ownership of their 3D video projects, from conception to curtain call. What this means for audiences is total narrative immersion in anything shot on the new camera system and viewed through 6DoF VR headsets. It’s nothing short of a paradigm shift in our ability to tell stories.
The video below shows three test films we produced using the earlier 180 version that was used in the development of the 360 Manifold camera.
