Ruthy Chapman is a Columbia, Missouri, resident who had to adjust her commute after her city bus line was cut in 2017. Instead of catching a regular bus connection each day, she has to call in advance for a van shuttle to pick her up at her old bus stop to get her to work.

Telling her story with a 360-degree camera was a challenge we wanted to tackle to see if newsrooms can use this technology for more than one-shot wonders. What does it look like when a narrative story is told in 360 video?

Watch and see.


Check out the second segment where we interview StoryUp Chief Storyteller Sarah Hill about why immersive video is powerful and what tools newsrooms can use to get started.
