VR Journalism

Partner: The New York Times
In collaboration with The New York Times & their Virtual Reality team, we follow filmmaker, photographer, & expert climber Jimmy Chin as he scales The World Trade Center in “Man On Spire”. Chin travels to death-defying heights in order to strap a 360° camera setup to the 408-foot-tall spire on top of the skyscraper. The visceral experience climaxes with a stunning timelapse of NYC’s expansive landscape.
