Design Principles

Experiences should be relevant, tied to the content and feeding user’s fandom

Videos shouldn’t pull users out of content, but help them engage with it

360 video should have a directed point of view to help users navigate with minimal work

Videos should be 1-3 minutes

As a framework for engagement, high fandom users benefit most from immersive experience on the should moments of pre and post content. Where as low fandom users, can chase side stories and build engagement during the event.
