The rugged, cold coasts of Chile offer a playground for those daring enough to explore the country's remote breaks. Craig Anderson and Rob Machado take us on a journey to these places, enjoying waves together in stunning GoPro 360 VR.

“It's a new way of telling stories and the future of filmmaking,” says director Taylor Steele about the utilization and inclusion of VR technology in Proximity. “You're engulfed, you're there physically and you'll feel like you're there with us.” The Proximity project has been a multi-media experience including a full-length film, VR experience, photo book, and art gallery.

VR footage was captured using the Go Pro Omni, which utilizes six Go Pro Hero4 Black cameras.

Watch for more virtual reality footage being released in the upcoming weeks on TetonGravity.com and find a Proximity tour stop here.
