In the last video, we set our whole rig up, so now shooting with it is pretty straight forward. Since we can’t really use lights or other film equipment without them being in the shot, our setup is necessarily simple. Mark takes you through the process of shooting 360° video in the field and what that means. He reviews where the 360° video stitch is and how that affects what the viewer is seeing and the person on the camera walking through it.
