Aftermath VR: Euromaidan is an immersive documentary project about the Euromaidan Revolution in Kyiv, Ukraine.
On the morning of February 20, 2014, government police forces opened fire with live ammunition against protesters armed with bats and makeshift wooden shields. Fifty people were killed in the bloodshed.
We reconstruct the street where the violence took place, as it is today using photogrammetry and CGI. Viewers of the experience retrace the same path protesters took as they reclaimed the street from police forces. They explore the story through archival footage, 360° video interviews with eyewitnesses and scanned artifacts from the Euromaidan. Viewers will explore the story by physically walking up the street revealing the narrative that is tied to specific places where certain events took place.
Aftermath VR was a recipient of the Journalism 360 Challenge Grant in 2017, which is funded by Google News Lab, Knight Foundation and Online News Association.
In 2018, Aftermath VR got successfully funded on Kickstarter, raising $11,945 with 194 backers.
