Wild Immersion has been entrusted with a significant task in enhancing environmental awareness in the Charente region. Blanche Denis, our artistic director, ventured into a nature reserve on January 25, 2024, to conduct a training session on the use of 360-degree cameras for the team responsible for its conservation. This initiative marks the beginning of an exciting journey to document the natural beauty of the area using cutting-edge technology.

Objective: A Year-long Filming of the Reserve

The reserve’s team, consisting of six enthusiasts passionate about local wildlife and flora, eagerly embraced the training. The primary goal is to film the biodiversity over an entire year using 360-degree cameras loaned by Wild Immersion, adhering to the reserve’s regulations and decrees. This immersive experience aims to create a virtual reality film that respects and highlights the wilderness and the necessity of its preservation.

Strategically Placing Cameras

The training provided by Blanche Denis covered more than just camera operation; it also offered the team a new perspective on the natural reserve. Participants learned to identify strategic locations for camera placement to best capture the animals inhabiting this biodiversity haven. This is a crucial step in obtaining breathtaking images of the local fauna, from majestic birds and fascinating reptiles to elusive mammals.

Instructor’s Testimonial

The artistic director of Wild Immersion shared her enthusiasm: “The nature in the Charente region is incredibly rich, and I am confident that the on-site team will do an extraordinary job.”

We extend our thanks to the training participants. Their commitment to nature conservation and dedication to this project are essential for its success.

An Asset for the Region and an Educational Tool

This 360-degree virtual reality film will be a significant asset for promoting the region as a tourist destination. It will offer visitors a unique immersive experience, allowing them to discover the exceptional natural beauty of the Charente region.

But that’s not all. This ambitious project can also serve as a valuable educational tool for local schools, sparking students’ curiosity and raising awareness about the importance of biodiversity and environmental preservation.
