HoloTour is a virtual travel app that launched with the first version of Microsoft HoloLens.
We combined 360 degree video with 3D photogrammetry environments and spatial sound to create totally immersive, photo-real recreations of popular travel destinations. I was involved in both the capturing and post production of this ambitious app, which involved managing and compositing massive amounts of video. We shot on location using a custom 3D-printed camera rig outfitted with twelve GoPros – read more about the capturing process in this case study. HoloTour was later ported to Windows Mixed Reality VR headsets for an even more immersive experience.
Below are two short documentaries I edited from our collection of behind-the-scenes footage shot during the capture trips. “World Explorer” was the working title for HoloTour. Good Science was the name of our studio.
