Crowd Funding Campaign Underway to Augment Production Budget
KELOWNA, BC, September 05, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — VR360 Media Inc., a Kelowna based virtual reality and 360-degree video production company, has launched an Indiegogo Crowd Funding Campaign to help finance the production of their virtual reality documentary about the internment of Japanese Canadian’s during World War II.
In return for supporting the fundraising campaign VR360 Media will be providing donators with gifts based on donation levels. Gifts include a trip to Japan, an Oculus Go VR headset, t-shirts and historical books and prints. Supporters can donate on the Indiegogo website at: https://igg.me/at/j9CrKY3falc/x
The crowdsourced funds will augment a grant VR360 Media received this past spring from the National Association of Japanese Canadians. The grant enabled VR360 Media to move the project into pre-production. It was made possible by the endorsement of the Vernon Japanese Cultural Society. “Without their support the NAJC grant would not have been possible, we are very grateful,” notes VR360 Media producer James Dow.
The production team will be on location at the Nikkei Memorial Centre in New Denver this fall where one of the BC-based Japanese Internment camps is located. “Due to the historical nature of this project we need to recreate what it was like in BC’s Japanese internment camps in 1943,” says Dow. “It can be an expensive undertaking as we need access to period costumes and vehicles from that period, amongst other items.”
The documentary will be directed by VR360 Media partner, Graham Cairns, who has produced VR & 360 productions around the world. High profile productions include the 2016 Democratic National Convention and the 2017 Academy Awards Red Carpet.
It will be shot using the latest 360 Video Technology. Also known as Immersive or Spherical Video, 360 Video is the next step in the evolution of video production providing viewers with an interactive experience. It is supported on existing social media platforms including Facebook, YouTube and Google 360.
