There are few individuals in Canada with experience in 360 degree video comparable to Ryan Jackson. In 2011, at a world breaking dodgeball game, Jackson developed his own 360 camera rig to create an immersive visual experience that captured the event like no one else could. After completing this project, he posted the first beginning-to-end online tutorial on creating 360 video on his blog, cementing his reputation as a global leader in the medium. Since then he has been committed to staying at the leading edge of 360 video technology and focusing merging this innovative video medium with exceptional story telling.
