Virtual Reality Film Aims to Help Nepal Quake Victims

A virtual reality film aims to help raise funds for survivors of last month's earthquake in Nepal by giving viewers a first-hand experience of the disaster's aftermath. Los Angeles-based company RYOT - which produces news stories for audiences to act on - shot the footage in the days following the 7.8 magnitude quake which struck the impoverished nation on April 25, killing more than 8,000 people. "As film-makers, we always try to have people understand the magnitude of a disaster but it's difficult in traditional video," said David Darg, RYOT's director and co-founder who traveled to Nepal in the quake's aftermath.
