Ever since he was a little boy, Jorge Gutierrez has been obsessed with Mexican wrestling. And as long as he can remember, he’s had a soft spot for the losers who leave the ring beaten, bruised and humiliated. “I always wanted to follow the wrestlers when they lost,” said Gutierrez during a recent interview with Variety. “And, you know, the losers look like me.”
So when Google approached Gutierrez, who is perhaps best known as the director of Disney’s “Book of Life” about making an animated short film for the company’s Spotlight Stories project, he naturally thought of the losers of Mexican wrestling first. The result of that cooperation, a virtual reality (VR) short dubbed “ Son of Jaguar.”
What is 360 VR Video?
360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.
It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.
