Wondros’ Sophie Muller, an award-winning music video and commercial director, lauded for her highly stylized work, has recently completed a new immersive video project with the rock band, The Kills. Highlighting their song “Whirling Eye,” from their 5th record, 2016’s Ash & Ice, the Virtual Reality (VR) video used GoPro technology to capture the impact of the music’s visuals. Muller, an award winning and cutting edge director, utilized Omni, GoPro’s synchronized 6-camera array, a professional end-to-end solution for capturing, stitching and editing high-resolution virtual reality and immersive content. 
The video brings audiences into the music and motion of the song in a more realistic and immersive way. Muller’s use of camera and motion provide a powerful expression of the song, unique in comparison to a traditional 2D video. Muller, as in so many of her projects, breaks boundaries, she did the same in directing this project, pushing the technology hard to evoke the emotion and depth of the surroundings the film was shot.

“I have had a long-term relationship with The Kills and an opportunity to work together and in VR was an experience I am grateful for having. There is a unique way to work with VR technology and my approach was to test my limits, the band’s and the tools,” stated Muller. “It was an experience and opportunity I hope to be involved with again.
