Watch this behind-the-scenes 360 video from the Iowa Hawkeyes

If you’re looking for some creative ideas on how to use your 360 camera, check out this video from the Iowa Hawkeyes. In their second game of the season, one of the players was given a selfie stick with a 360 camera attached to the end of it and recorded the walk from the locker room to the field. The video does a great job of putting viewers in a place they can’t go, and the placement of the player in the middle of the swarm makes for an interesting view all around.

How can your staff translate this idea and do something similar? What about a parade? What about a band performance? What about capturing your football team coming out onto the field?

Have you used a 360 camera with your staff? We’d love to see and showcase some of the creative work being done. If you have something you’d like to share, let us know at
