Two simple ideas that could help VR journalism move forward.

Five years after Hunger in LA and two years after Clouds over Sidra, everybody in digital media seems to talk about VR/360 journalism, and a lot of news organisations have given the medium a test drive. However, only international top players like the New York Times are able to publish quality content on a frequent basis (nytvr, NYT 360 video channel) – and even they are ages away from reaching a significant number of viewers.

“VR news still has a poor understanding of its audience both in terms of content, content discovery, and attitudes to the technology”, writes Zillah Watson in a recent report published by the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism (RISJ). She also states that “production costs are still high” while “monetisation remains a central challenge”.

While we certainly don’t have a masterplan to change those facts over night, we’d like to present two simple ideas that could help VR journalism move forward.
