Nicole Kidman stars in a short film for Etihad Airways shot on one of the airline’s luxury planes using a 360 degree virtual reality camera.
The video gives people the chance to experience what a flight from New York to Abu Dhabi is like and you get to see all of the different classes on the plane, from economy to the super luxurious suites that Nicole is seen staying in.
“Some things need to be experienced, not explained,” Shane O’Hare, SVP of Marketing for Etihad, told Adweek about the video. “You don’t explain the taste of a meal at a high-end restaurant or the feel of good linen in a five-star hotel bedroom. In the same way, our incredible A380 product cannot adequately be described by words alone, or by traditional film, or even by 3-D film alone. It has to be experienced. Virtual reality allowed us to make that experience real for viewers.”
