Earlier this month we were hired to shoot some test 360 footage at Tianducheng, better known as Fake Paris, China.
Tianducheng, located two hours south of Shanghai, was intended to be a luxury town catering to the upper class. Complete with Champs-Elysees, Trocadero and even a one-third scale Eiffel Tower, the town fell into abandon even before construction was complete. Now Tianducheng is a ghost town.
If the setting looks familiar, it’s because you’ve seen the Jamie XX video Gosh.
For the actual footage we used a custom built 6-GoPro rig. Then we had some fun mounting a Theta S to the dolly – see the video below.
