Join Paul Taggart for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding how the VR rig works, part of VR Video and Photography: Storytelling.
- So I came back to Moutchets hall to sort of do a more…intense scout.…Before the races start on Friday,…the mushing organization has a sponsored event…where people have donated to sort of keep the organization,…the championship running, can come out…and get on the actual sleds…that will be in the championship race…but only with three or four dogs.…So they can actually get on the back and go for a ride,…it's a shorter course, it's only a mile…but for me, as a photographer, this is a great opportunity…to just get the go pro rig out here in Moutchets hall…and see how it was going to work.…
The first part of the event was all of the sponsors…inside the actual building of Moutchets hall…signing up for the different sleds they were going to get on.…So I grabbed my pelican case out of the van,…went straight into Moutchets hall and started setting up.…Inside my pelican case, I've got all the equipment…that I need for this project.…I've got the small faded camera that I use for scouting,…I've also got my go pro rig…which is for the more elaborate scout…
