Go wide or go home – 360 video for Xperia Studio

Xperia Studio approached me a while ago for this project, to feature the Xperia Phones in an unusual way. Being a panorama photographer, and very interested in all things 360, I came up with a way to use 6 Xperia Neo’s (with fisheye lenses attached) to shoot a 360 video. And since every movie (or image) should should tell a story, we decided to shoot the 360 video on a mountain bike in one of the most interesting mountain bike trails in the western US: Slickrock at Moab, Utah. In order to keep the phones together, and have them survive the pretty rough ride, I designed a custom rig, and printed it on a Ultimaker 3D printer. Special thanks to Daniel Finkler, who helped me out by writing a custom Android app to start/stop the video recording via Bluetooth, and to Mark Sevenoff of Western Spirit, who is a great mountain biker, and offers very interesting bike tours in the western US.

Head over to Xperia Studio to see the Go Wide Or Go Home 360 Video , and the three behind-the-scenes videos that explain a bit more what I was doing.
