Wales Green Party election 360 degree broadcast done in blender


The Wales Green Party used Blender for a 360 degree video for their electoral broadcast. Chris McFall from United Filmdom talks about its creation.

Chris Mcfall writes:

It’s been a year of firsts for the Wales Green Party and their Party Electoral Broadcast for the National Assembly Election in 2016 is no different. Featuring the leader of the Wales Green Party, Alice Hooker-Stroud, the 360 video has been created with a camera system that simultaneously records all 360 degrees of a scene. Viewers can pan and rotate a 360 video's perspective to watch it from different angles.

As a film maker I wanted to do so something that represents the Wales Green Party, something cutting edge, that reaches out to younger disenfranchised voters in Wales. This is the world’s first ever party electoral video shot in 360 and it’s ground-breaking.


On TV the Party Election Broadcast will appear as a regular broadcast video, but on the internet the film can be experienced in 360 degrees. Using a smart phone the viewer can click on the Facebook video, as the phone is moved around the view will vary. People with head mounted displays like Google cardboard, GearVR, Vive or oculus rift can view the video through youtube.
