In March 2016, MediaCombo principal Michael Owen, went to Moscow and Lake Baikal to shoot three Google Expeditions for Google’s educational program. He and his partner used a 12-camera rig to make the 360º video stills for the Expeditions, and also to capture footage for a virtual reality impressionistic documentary about Lake Baikal.

The resulting film, Lake Baikal: The Science and Spirituality of Extreme Water, was launched in December 2016 at the IDFA Crossmedia Forum in Amsterdam. Next month, the film will be screened at the European Film Market at the Berlin Film Festival in February, 2018.
