UBS Optimus Foundation VR

Going the last mile
Our trip to Liberia. 360°VR Video and photography journey.A small team from ateo and avocado360 traveled to Liberia for the inspiring programs of the UBS Optimus Foundation. The country, scarred by a long-running, ruinous civil war and the deadly Ebola virus, is supported by various aid organizations. The UBS Optimus supports two aid organizations with donations. To bring supporters of the Optimus Foundation closer to the work of the aid organizations on the ground, UBS officials decided to take a new approach and share the story as a 360°virtual reality experience. The video is most impressive when viewed with VR goggles like Oculus. 
Solar Suitcase in Liberia

Together with the UBS WM Innovation Lab and the UBS Optimus Foundation, we produced the first 360° video for the company. In it, we showcase the Optimus Foundation’s work through the Solar Suitcase program in Liberia. It provides health clinics in remote regions with the crucial means for all examinations and work that takes place at night: Electric light.

The video was awarded in the Disruptive Campaign category at the European Excellence Awards 2017.
