About the videographer.
The German journalist/videographer Jonas Ginter is no internet newbie. Three years ago he was playing around with time-lapse photography and the “tiny planet” mobile app that “bends” photographs 360 degrees. In a flash of genius he decided to combine the two, aiming to mimic the app’s effects in video. In March 2013 his first 360 video, shot with 6 GoPro cameras on a 3-D printed rig, went viral, accumulating more than one million views on Vimeo in a week.
