Dizzy Rascal Bonkers: Panoramic Video

The official video for Dizzy Rascal – ‘Bonkers’ – makes interesting use of spherical panoramas, using the LadyBug2 system.

LadyBug is a six camera lens system capturing a 360-degree view – similar technology is used for Google Street View. With the addition of Apple’s Shake the linear output was converted into a ‘planet’ view allowing for the effect in the video below:

A neat way to capture the cityscape – see http://www.ptgrey.com/products/spherical.asp for more on the LadyBug2, BoardsMag for more on the making of the video and http://www.dizzeerascal.co.uk/ for more on Dizzy…

The panoramic video was shot by Digital Immersion a French company specialised in immersive media – see www.digitalimmersion.fr for more examples.
