Content Insider #481 - Not Really
by Miles Weston
If you've been following the video streams from Rio with your VR headset on you've really gotten the feeling that you are there without spending a lot of money on flights and hotel.

And for a student film, all on a miniscule budget that would not even pay for catering on a typical Hollywood set.
