A 360° Music Video

This 360° music video features a jam session with three local musicians. My original plan was to use a full band and one of their original/cover songs. Unfortunately, they were unable to dedicate to a scheduled date, so these three artists unified for a one-time session at the Racquet Club apartment complex to help me complete the assignment.

I decided early on to use this video as an experiment, combining a 360° camera with the movement of a handheld jib/crane. The GoPro plugin ‘Reframe’ allowed me to overcapture the footage meaning I could edit the 360° video in a normal 16:9 rectangular format. This made the post-production work mainly maneuvering the camera angle’s pan and tilt via keyframing in tandem my handheld crane movements. Feel free to leave a comment below on what you think might need improvement moving forward with this format!

Special thanks to Dylan Jeffery, Andrew Brockman, and Zac Shoopman for their musical talents featured in this 360° music video.
