For this film, our producers unearthed, scanned, and transferred thousands of archival elements to build a virtual Gobi Desert, layering material into a 360 canvas. Those black and white images were integrated with matte painting, 360 environment creation, and live-action shoots to produce a captivating look at one of the most important expeditions in the Museum’s history.

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.
