Keeping 360º video simple

Di Caprio's latest blockbuster sees him left for dead by his own hunting team, following a brutal bear attack.

The film's promo site makes use of user-controlled 360º video in a very simplified way. In fact, the camera can only be moved perhaps 30º either way. Limiting the movement like this allows the director to hold the viewer's interest (there's always something in shot worth looking at), while allowing just enough interactivity (the frame moves with the mouse) to really involve us, much more so than using regular video.
