YouTube Stars To Shoot Virtual Reality Horror Videos Around The World, by Sam Gutelle

YouTube is giving some of its creators the opportunity to tell scary stories in 360 degrees. The video site has announced a partnership with film studio Blumhouse Productions, through which it will set up virtual reality horror sets at five of its Spaces around the world.

The videos born out of the new initiative will be shot on a haunted hotel set referred to as “room 301.” Versions of the set will be available at the YouTube Spaces in Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, Berlin, and Tokyo, and additional creators who frequent the hubs in Paris and Sao Paulo will be flown to Los Angeles in order to cook up their own scares. In total, more than 100 creators are expected to participate, with Prank Vs. Prank’s Jesse Wellens spearheading a massive collab video that will kick off the project.
