The shot was directed by Pascal Tirilly. Pascal, could you tell us a bit about yourself?I’m a film director and a film producer. My experience leads me to find various ways to write films. I have always been fascinated by new technologies and VR is simply the next level to tell deeper stories.
Why did you decide to do it in 360°?I am in charge of producing Jean Paul Gaultier fashion shows for many years. I wanted to get into VR because I am convinced that this immersive technology is a fabulous tool for sharing this type of live event afterwards. I love the fact that viewers are totally immersed in the scene among journalists, celebrities and models.
