In this VR 360 documentary, the ancient gladiator fights can be experienced in a proximity and intensity like never before. Witness live action gladiators in extreme close-up from within an entirely immersive, rich setting.
Immaculately reconstructed in 360° and 3D. Stand next to Gladiators as they struggle for survival in the sand of the Roman Colosseum of 80 A.D. Observe a bloody and brutal conclusion together with Emperor Titus and 50,000 other spectators.
The 10 minute long film is the latest contribution to the VR portfolio of German public broadcaster ZDF. The team at Faber Courtial developed their own unique camera rig for this innovative production which allowed them to portray live action gladiators closer in 3D than any other solution.
