RYOT is using Virtual Reality filmmaking to teleport viewers around the world to real-life conflict zones and disaster areas.

This video made by Ryot shows a view overlooking the old city of Aleppo on the front line between regime and opposition forces in Syria that appears in a virtual reality short film. Three months after debuting VR footage filmed in Nepal after an earthquake devastated the country, Ryot is releasing an immersive three-minute short film on Tuesday that was captured on the war-torn streets of Aleppo, Syria. The film’s creator, Christian Stephen, said he captured the footage using six cameras and a 3D-printed gimbal. | CHRISTIAN STEPHEN / RYOT VIA AP
