Aleppo-Helsinki is a pilot project developed together with YLE (Finnish Broadcasting Company) around the possibilities that virtual reality offers for journalism, storytelling and personal experience in the beginning of 2017. In the virtual experience the audience is taken first to a familiar scenery in a normal day Helsinki. After a while the Helsinki scenery changes, now resembling more like the news images of a bombed down and deserted city of Aleppo in Syria. The experience was developed in co-operation with Teatime Research Ltd., Yle Kioski & Yle Beta.
