My original project proposal is called Dream, within a Dream. It is the short film series using 360 degrees and Omni virtual technique.
360-degree videos, also known as immersive videos or spherical videos, are video recordings where a view in every direction is recorded at the same time, shot using an omnidirectional camera or a collection of cameras. During playback, the viewer has control of the viewing direction like a panorama. In advanced, the viewer can use Omni treadmill to enable natural movement in 360 degrees. The viewer can run around in virtual reality without risk of falling or colliding with people, walls and other objects that hurt.
Dream, within a Dream requires HD 360 degrees camera and the video format is MP4 or MKV with a resolution of 2:1 ratio at 7168×3584. The series will be published on YouTube with a duration of 5 minutes/episode. Its target audience ranges from 16 to 30 years old, who are young and interested in technology.
Its story world is in Cambridge, England, and Melbourne, Australia since its protagonist is Eric, an 18-year-old innocent boy from Cambridge, moving to Melbourne to study in University. Eric has the ability to create and control his dreams. Although Eric enjoys his own dream world, he has to face problems when the reality is too different from what is in his mind. Eric is an introvert and does not talk to people. He is boycotted because of his special accent from the East of England. Eric is described as “a freak nerd” and “daydreaming all time”. Eric has a crush on his classmate. Using his rare gift of creating dreams, he recreates the girl’s image with his dates though, in reality, he never dares to approach her. The confusion causes Eric trouble in distinguishing between reality and dream.
“Dream, within a Dream” brings the audience a new experience of “walking through” the film, as well as knowledge of human brain capacity.
