MY BROTHER’S KEEPER is a Civil War narrative that pushes the boundaries of immersive storytelling while remaining anchored in historical fact. It is inspired by the PBS drama series Mercy Street. It tells the story of two estranged brothers who, fighting on opposing sides of the Civil War, unexpectedly reunite on the battlefield at Antietam.
As we walk into battle with Ethan (19) and Jackson (16), we flash back to glimpses of their young lives to understand what has led them to this extraordinary, life-altering moment amid the carnage and brutality of war.
The VR short film uses innovative technologies and techniques to create a cinematic experience that brings this pivotal period of American history to life – placing the viewer not only at, but in, the Battle of Antietam.
Mercy Street Season 2 Airs Sundays, January 22 – March 5, 2017 @ 8/7c
I hope that you are ready for your daily fix of VR juice. Drink it up, there will be a new one tomorrow.
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.
