FRONTLINE: Ebola Outbreak

Ebola Outbreak: A Virtual Journey combines documentary with virtual reality technology to create an immersive experience that gives viewers a comprehensive look at the Ebola crisis. Using Google cardboard, viewers are transported to a 360-degree environment where they can move to control their surroundings. The virtual reality technology allows viewers to become eyewitnesses to the actions and testimonies of people doing what they could to control the outbreak. This medium is essential to tell this story effectively; a film alone could not evoke such a sense of urgency for this issue.
