Life-saving training in VR
It is crucial that teachers are able to perform first aid on children. That’s why the organisation “Børneliv” (or “Child’s life”) asked us to bring them up close using VR-training. Using 360º video - i.e. live-action video presented in virtual reality - we put the teachers inside reenactments of dramatic-but-realistic situations where children are suffering from ramp seizures, breathing difficulties and similar. The project aims at preventing fatalities amongst children in schools.
A convenient re-enactment
The Børneliv First Aid segments increase the viewer’s sense of presence in the scene drastically, so that teachers get to go through a highly realistic experience, conveniently fitted inside a pair VR-glasses; eliminating the need for elaborate role-playing setups or forgettable power-points. The segments were produced with professional actors (Thure Lindhardt, Bodil Jørgensen & Birgitte Hjort Sørensen), and is a collaboration with production company MANND.
Børneliv - or "Child's life" in English - is a non-profit organisation of pediatricians, doctors and students of medicine. Their main goal is to ensure children's health and well-being.
MANND is an Aarhus-based video production company, specialising in 360º video, and similar unorthodox formats.
