Title Viewer’s immersion in 360º video features. Comparative analysis of “In the skin of a refugee” and “Fukushima, polluted lives” Summary The aim of this paper is to identify some of the narrative resources being used in immersive features to increase in the viewer the sensation of being inside the represented reality represented. In order to do, so we have used a blended methodology based on content analysis and in depth interviews with their creators, to perform a comparative analysis between 2 Spanish projects. The selected features are “En la piel de un refugiado” (“In the skin of a refugeee”), published by El Confidencial in 2016 and “Fukushima, vidas contaminadas” (“Fukushima, polluted lives”), also published that year by El País. Results indicate the coincidence in the use of some narrative techniques, but also great differences when using other resources. This fact certifies the experimental nature of this type of contents Keywords Immersive storytelling, feature, 360º video, innovation, virtual reality.
