Conditions at Omaha

2016 | Dir. Jessica Brillhart

Conditions at Omaha is a three-minute long VR experience that surrounds you with four local forecasts from Omaha, Nebraska that were televised in the 90’s on The Weather Channel. While you’re in the middle of this Omaha multi-weather-verse, you’re also bathed in the smooth jazz stylings of the biggest-selling instrumental musician of the modern era and Weather Channel favorite, Kenny G.
