Empathetic Media

Empathetic Media Multimedia agency creating the next generation storytelling. We are using 360video, virtual& augmented reality to foster empathy.

We are a media agency creating the next generation of interactive stories for education & news. To foster empathy we combine immersive storytelling with virtual reality, augmented reality and graphic journalism. Multimedia experiences enable participants to not only gather information within a context, but also to create empathy by making choices influencing the story and living another person’s life. From print to mobile to tablet to desktop to fully immersive virtual reality – we will tailor the solution to suit you and your audiences’ needs. We’re familiar with all the techniques and software to make it happen: HTML5, 3D scanning, Unity, After Effects, pen and paper to name only a few. Our goal is to marry media with the story to create a completely new story experience. Our team members have been on the cutting edge of digital storytelling technology for many years now, producing work that in many cases has never been done before.

Mission: Creating empathy in the world with the power of media, new technology and innovative journalism.

Proud to share our collaboration with the Pfizer Foundation on an important story about women and children's health in West Pokot, Kenya. We used 360 video and spatial audio to bring viewers alongside Susan as she visits a newly founded clinic to have her youngest child immunized and discuss her options for ensuring her and her family's health.

We visited Kenya with our partners at World Vision USA to bring awareness to women and children's health in underserved communities through the story of Susan and her family. We're excited to share her story at the International Conference on Family Planning via our first-ever global health 360-degree experience.

Tilt your phone or click and drag the video below to explore and experience Susan's story firsthand. https://on.pfizer.com/2TtNr0X

Last night's 360 video fest in Puerto Saldaña was a roaring success! Slowly but surely we took over the football pitch in the town centre and soon enough the police had to volunteer to monitor the queues for the headsets. A lot of great conversations were had about using comics and 360 video to tell these stories, as well as how best to share what happened in Puerto during the worst years of the conflict in 2000. #lapazen360 #rutasdelconflicto

Building a biblioteca (library) in Puerto Saldaña with a shout out to Carol Sanchez from Rutas del Conflicto for the idea in the first place. We pushed a rental car, rope bridge, jeep and wheelbarrow to their limits to kick start Puerto Saldaña's first public library with 350 books, donations welcome! Though maybe wait til the vehicular bridge is fixed for the next batch (circa December).

From this morning's comics workshop, teaching the next generation of storytellers -from Puerto Saldaña, one of the hardest hit towns in the country- how to share stories from the conflict. 11 page-long comics came out of the 5 hour session, including everything from first person accounts of the paramilitary arrival, the FARC's siege and taking of the town in 2000, through to the army's eventual response. We'll post the comics on www.graphicvoices.com so you can check it out for yourselves. #lapazen360

Working on our latest 360 video telling stories of the Colombian conflict through survivors' testimonies: this snapshot was taken in El Davis - the birthplace of the FARC (armed revolutionary forces of Colombia) in the 1960s - during our shoot in Tolima, Colombia back in late June. Happy to be back in Rioblanco this week to premiere the video and give VR and comics workshops. Follow our updates here and at #lapazen360
