We are pleased to announce our first 360/VR Video Challenge! Create a 360/VR Countdown video using SkyBox Studio in After Effects and have a chance to win prizes and create something for your portfolio. In 360/VR it’s crucial that the viewer orient themselves in 360 space at the beginning of a film or video. What is the best way to do this? Numerically? Graphically? You show us! Can be a numeric countdown, like Hamilton+Kidd put in their LeMans 360 video below. Can incorporate live action, or can be graphics and text generated in After Effects. Be creative! Anything goes – you are helping to create a new film-making vocabulary for 360.

How To Participate:

Create a 360/VR Countdown video. You must use SkyBox Studio in After Effects.
Duration: (20-60 seconds)
Contest Deadline:

11:59 PM EST Wednesday November 11th, 2015.

The winners have been chosen!
