Pakistan has made the leap into 360° video. As an ICFJ Knight Fellow, I worked in collaboration with The Express Tribune in Karachi to produce Pakistani media’s first experiment in virtual-reality video.
Why did we do this? Because 360° video is a visual storytelling tool with massive potential — both for planned projects and for live and breaking news. It provides viewers with a more in-depth, immersive experience, giving a first-person perspective on your story.
For our first story, we planned a series on heritage sites in Karachi, Pakistan's biggest city.
