Great content! Great overview on storytelling and an intro to 360.
From my point of view this doesn't worth money to pay for. Maybe because I was let down to see it more as a publicity for the teacher's company than actual teaching something useful. The history of the VR and 360 can be found free of charge on Wikipedia, the on field material is shot with an GoPro Oddysey which is not available for purchase for anybody, just for some kind of clients (maybe because it costs a lot) and the book if I understood correctly is given freely by the author (which is not the teacher) on his website. What I did liked was the presentation of Samsung Gear 360, but sadly there wasn't any footage presented from it (even through it was used on the field). What I was hoping for to get is at least one example of how to stash multiple photographs to create a 360 Virtual Tour and use it with VR to travel in it. Overall, I wouldn't mind watching it for free, but I wouldn't pay money for it.
Personally, I was not that impressed with this workshop because four of the first sections of info is available online & also I was looking for more of a grassroots approach using much less expensive gear...
