    This book is a perfect crash course in virtual reality film making. It gives an incredible overview of the theory, technology, and production strategy of VR. It is also a great source for anyone interested to learn who the players are in the space. Our company has bought multiple copies as a tool for the creatives attached to our various projects. It should also be mentioned that the author of this book, Celine Tricart, is a very talented, innovative and leading figure in VR film making. She has been directing content in the medium for years and has truly provided a service to the industry by not only sharing her professional expertise in this well constructed book, but also compiling an amazing amount of insight from other leading figures in the industry. Novices to the medium will seek to gain a lot of information and good guidance. Professionals and experts will also benefit from the well organized structure and focused discourse.

    I loved this book! I’m a 360 video director and I enjoy learning about the industry in-depth. Usually I do that by reading news articles and following certain discussions in 360-related Facebook groups. But when I heard about this book, I was so excited – finally a text that I can keep on my desk and refer back to when needed! I teach a 360 documentary filmmaking workshop in my community as well, and I brought this book in for my students. It does a great job of summarizing the must-know facets of 360 video production while providing the necessary details and tech specs in an engaging way. I think my favorite part of this book is the section on history… I learned a lot about early VR milestones that I was completely ignorant to prior. This is a MUST have book for anyone interested in 360 video production!

    I use this book at the main textbook in my 360 screenwriting and filmmaking class. It is a mixture of theoretical and practical information and a must read for any student new to 360 or VR.
