You used Kolor Abyss Rig. How did you find it in doing the job?
The Kolor Abyss Rig allows you to capture all details of a scene and examine everything. It is a professional equipment which emphasizes the quality of the image but it requires minimal skills in its implementation.
360 degree video is just at their early stage. How do you see its development in the next few years?
To me, the video 360 degree brings the same revolution when the talkies replaced silent movies. I think the 360 degree video will be the norm.
Do you have other underwater projects?
We designed a system in order to capture "holographic sound". We use it in addition with standard camera that allows us to spatialized sound. A project, where you can participate via Indiegogo is underway. It consists in studying sperm whales.
