This chapter investigates opportunities and dilemmas in VR journalism through a case study of Nonny de la Peña’s pioneering production, Project Syria, from 2014. Project Syria exemplifies a computer-generated imagery (CGI) experience that prompts crucial journalism concerns that still await further discussion. While de la Peña and the Emblematic Group envisioned initiating an empathetic wake-up call through innovative technological means, this case study investigates in what ways and to what extent the VR story potentially deviates from established norms of accurate journalism.
