Behind the Scenes: A Climate Change VR Storytelling Project

“Being a Fijian… I feel as though I have a very different perspective, a very different mandate than just research…”

Here’s a rare insight into my personal video diary on Day 2, behind the scenes of making a climate change story VR film in Fiji for COP23.

WATCH, SHARE AND COMMENT ON THE FILM HERE.

Special mention to Tom Perry from the World Bank, Tash Tan and Aiyana Merlo from S1T2, Alana Holmberg, Ken Cokanasiga and George Nacewa who were with me for this part of the trip.

Stay tuned, there is much more Pacific storytelling to come!
