BRITISH COLUMBIA WILD WITHIN
THROUGH TIMELESS VISTAS
The ‘Wild Within’ is an interactive virtual journey that follows a group of travelers through British Columbia’s Great Bear rainforest. The film grants people from around the world the ability to submerge themselves in the raw beauty and epic vistas of British Columbia’s most remote locations.
The project was filmed with a custom stabilization gimbal. By mounting this rig on our travelers’ backpacks, and aboard an octocopter drone, we were able to capture both the feeling of hiking through, and soaring over, the scenic wilds of British Columbia in 360°.
RECONSTRUCTING THE SKY
When filming was complete, there were still ‘back holes’ in the footage because a camera couldn’t be mounted where each rig connected to the backpack or drone. Settling for nothing less than perfection, Bipolar Id patched these unsightly holes by analysing and sampling portions of the earth and sky from footage filmed on site. The final result is a stabilized, authentic 360° experience of British Columbia in all its natural beauty.
“A mindblowing journey to breathtaking British Columbia, Canada, without ever leaving where I live in New York City.”
THE HUFFINGTON POST
The Wild Within experience was launched as an installation at select airports across North America in 2015.
