Wild Virtual Reality Experience
Puts You Right in the
Audience at SNL 40
By Tim Nudd
Unfortunately, we don’t have any video to show you that even approximates the experience. But what happened was this: Milk recorded Jerry Seinfeld’s monologue with a VR camera mounted on top of Camera 1—the camera right in front of the SNL main stage. The VR camera recorded the entire studio in all directions for the entire monologue.
So, when you sit down for the VR experience—watching it on the Samsung Gear VR headset—it feels like you’re sitting on top of Camera 1. As Seinfeld calls out each comedian, you look around to watch them, just as you would if you were in the studio.
