Aftermath VR is an immersive journalistic project about Euromaidan revolution in Kyiv, Ukraine. On a grey morning of February 20, 2014, government police forces opened live ammunition fire against protesters armed with bats and wooden shields.
Fifty people died, and several days after, President Viktor Yanukovych fled to Russia.
We reconstruct half a kilometer of the street where the bloodshed happened, as it is today, using photogrammetry and CGI. The viewers of the experience would have a possibility to repeat the path of the protesters that were reclaiming the street from the police forces.
The story would be a chronicle of that tragic morning with a strong emphasis on archival footage, and memories of the people who were there, that would be captured as 360° video interviews shot in places people were that morning.
