The White House holiday decor: a 360 walkthrough

About this video...
A lot was learned in the making of this video, including a couple big takeaways:
- You can't speed up 360 video without it completely disorienting the viewer. Stick to human speed.
- Doing a walk-through is very hard because each user is going to experience the space differently. Some viewers will be done with one section in a hurry, while others will turn very slowly through the video, missing text and potentially ending in the incorrect orientation when the video begins to move again.
- The Nikon Keymission is much higher quality than the Ricoh Theta, though not to the level of an entire gopro kit. It also functions much better in lower light.
- Getting close-up into interesting spaces is a great way to use the 360 camera.
- Wear cool hats, it's a good way to deal with the awkwardness of being in the video yourself.
