Over the past few months, VR camera systems have advanced rapidly to keep pace with the emerging medium. For Catatonic, Shelmerdine positioned a cluster of eight GoPro cameras at the "head" of his terrified "patient" to capture all four quadrants of the 3-D space. More recently, Shelmerdine has used his own Dark Corner rig, featuring four Sony a7SII cameras, to shoot projects like the gritty drug-smuggler short Mule. Recently introduced stereoscopic VR camera systems also include the Jaunt NEO, Radiant Images’ Headcase, and the Nokia OZO. Veteran director Randal Kleiser (Grease, The Blue Lagoon) switched to the OZO after making the pilot for his 12-episode Defrost series on a GoPro rig.
