Bears Ears National Monument VR

Helping organize the 2017 Jackson Hole Film Festival VR entries and awards, Blueplanet VR‘s Eric Hanson took some time to capture some remarkable treasures of the southwest along the way.  Having explored the grand yet intimate Bears Ears National Monument previously, Eric set out to volumetrically capture some iconic ancient sites in the park, in order to assist environmental efforts to overturn the recent defeat and reduction of the priceless monument. Concern and care for wilderness is built by experiencing it directly, and volumetric VR may be an effective substitute and tool for activism.
