VR has become the next step for media development by creating fully immersive experiences that allow storytellers to engage with audiences in an entirely new way.
At the same time, a fundamental challenge remains: how can filmmakers build a bridge between traditional media and immersive formats to enhance the viewer experience? RT, one of the pioneers in immersive journalism, found a solution—“Project Duterte” is an innovative documentary that includes segments filmed in both traditional (“flat”) format and in panoramic video.
In 2016, Rodrigo Duterte was elected president of the Philippines. He’s promised to crack down on crime and has achieved infamy by urging citizens to kill drug addicts. Since his term began, it’s alleged that numerous extrajudicial executions of supposed drug dealers have been carried out. While death squads strike terror into people’s hearts and public faith in the police wanes, President Duterte washes his hands of vigilantes waging war on drugs.
