Google Spotlight Stories is the Oscar nominated, Emmy award-winning platform for immersive storytelling. Google’s artists and technologists exploring narrative in emerging technologies and experimenting with story in new and thoughtful ways.
The Spotlight Stories team is a research and development group creating cinema-quality immersive 360-degree storytelling technology across Android and iOS. As users watch one of their videos on a mobile device, they can move the device around to view different parts of the action as it unfolds, as if controlling the camera – for instance, following a leaf as it blows along the ground, or tracking a dancer as she moves across a stage. 360-degree sound technology matches the audio experience to the video.
