In Episode 9 of Boz To The Future, Meta CTO Andrew “Boz” Bosworth speaks with photographer, filmmaker, and alpinist Jonathan Griffith and professional adventure rock climber Alex Honnold about virtual reality documentary Alex Honnold: The Soloist VR.
They discuss how immersive media like VR can advance unique sports narratives. They also talk about how advances in media technology have also expanded access to extreme sports, giving people an unprecedented view of elite sports that require tremendous skill, practice, and talent. While historically these challenging adventures have been exclusive to a small subset of athletes, VR lets anyone with a headset take a proverbial walk on the wild side.
