Winner of the 2016 Webby Award for Best Cinematic VR Experience.
This was a collaboration between The Mill and The New York Times to mark the start of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. We recreated four iconic Olympic stadiums in Stereoscopic 360/VR using archival photographs and aerial surveys. The experience uses sound and pictures to tell the stories of unforgettable moments in Olympic history.
This video is the Behind The Scenes presentation as prepared by The Mill.
The VR experience itself is best viewed in Stereo VR with the nytvr app. Get it here.
