The award-winning documentary filmmakers at Smock Media in Venice Beach, CA are raising $57,500 for a virtual reality project called PRIME OBSERVER®. Our goal is to build Camerasuits® for our team of zany photojournalist / documentarian / adventurers to capture full 360 degree footage of spectacular cultural and historical moments that place you INSIDE these events as we experience them.
Ever wanted to go back to relive Burning Man or Coachella? Wanted to know what it’s really like to be in the middle of a floor fight at a political convention? Wanted to stand between rival protest marches and form your own opinion of what happened? Wanted to surround yourself by all the glitz, glamour and glitterati at Fashion Week but couldn’t get on the red carpet? Prime Observers® Hawk, Ramblin’ Tom, Kalia, Ben, Dakota, Nathaniel, Andylee and Abba Austin will put you there.
Virtual reality is a whole new medium to record history. With over 150 years of combined documentary production experience we know where to place the camera to capture “the moment” but now we ourselves will become that camera inside that moment. Filmmaking will never be the same. Come step into the scene with us!
