Rediscover Ancient Egypt


Standing at the base of the Great Pyramid of Giza you can see the urban sprawl of Cairo inching closer all around you. Travel to Egypt in 360° and discover how the demands of a modern economy are knocking on the gates of the last surviving wonder of the ancient world.

What Works Well

This video allows the viewer to not only see the landmarks Egypt is known for up close but to also experience life on the streets of Cairo that tourists may be less likely to ever explore.

Level of Guidance

What does this mean?

The Level of Guidance indicates how much the creator has imbued the video with a sense of at what the viewer should be looking.

For instance, a Level 1 video would mean that the camera has been left in place while life happens around it, allowing you, as the viewer, to simply observe. A Level 2 video might incorporate subtle visual, textual or audible hints or simple transitions. A Level 3 video would rely on a handful of hints and transition. A Level 4 video would employ multiple hints and dialogue. And a Level 5 video would rely on all of the above as well as a narrative arc that pushes the viewer forward.

Another way of looking at this would be how much production went into the video if you are considering making one of your own like it.
