Look through my eyes from rise to fall...
OVERSTAY is one of the first 360° POV arthouse movies in the world. Especially its intimate and unique narrative style made it a milestone production for understanding the power of immersive video. To achieve this extraordinary intimacy, author and director Rico Chibac constructed a superlight hat-mount with 4 manipulated GoPros attached to it. He broke out the original lenses and installed fisheye lenses from Taiwan.
With this self-made construction he was able to capture close and emotional 360° video images like no one had ever seen before.
