Tongal Ties With Nokia On Virtual Reality Film Project

Los Angeles-based crowdsourced content startup Tongal has linked up with Nokia, to promote the creation of a virtual reality film project through its program, the companies said today. According to the two, the new virtual reality project, Look Around You, will challenge creators to develop 120-second shorts that bring virtual reality stories to life. The two said that the three phase competition includes a concept, pitch, and video phase, with two filmmakers getting use of a camera and technical and postproduction support from Nokia to bring their production to life. The grand prize is one of Nokia's OZO virtual reality cameras.
