Virtual experience in conflict zones
Frontline in Focus will bring VR experience in war zones and hard to reach areas by seasoned local journalists to your screens. Our main targeted clients are international media and NGOs. The stories we cover will transfer you from your place to wherever it’s hard for you to reach and visualize.
Covid-19 and other security challenges imposed difficulties for international organizations to reach war zones. Frontline In focus XR, is the first digital platform to provide private VR experience for journalists, staff and donors by transferring them to areas they can’t reach and establish a genuine connection.

Our Scope of Interest
1People Up Front
Given our work in war and conflict zones, we are aware of the risks facing the displaced and affected residents. Therefore, before conducting any interview or filming, we explain to the person the reason behind filming his/her story. We are also keen to get written consent from them. Moreover, we refrain from filming stories and reports that may put the life of any person or his family in danger. Before interviewing a child, we seek permission from his parent or guardian, his teacher’s permission, or any other responsible adult.
2Impartiality and Objectivity
We are keen to tell the whole story without taking sides for our mission is to convey the facts as they are. We do not represent any of the parties to the conflict and we do our best to ensure a correct and balanced coverage. We seek to contact all parties concerned with a particular topic and include comments from all those who have been criticized or accused
3Truth and Accuracy
In all our past and future photographs, we avoid adding, removing, or editing anything from the subject of the original picture. We also prohibit luring an interviewee to a certain desired response, by formulating the questions in such a way that they do not entail specific answers. We are keen to put questions in a way that gives the person the opportunity to respond as freely as possible. In return, we can ask him to rephrase his response. We make sure, in the editing process for scenes and audio clips, that the final version matches the event’s reality.
The team includes professional journalists with extensive experience in media coverage in war and conflict zones, in addition to specialists in various creative, technical, and legal fields.
As a humanitarian worker at a headquarters level, it was amazing for me to know that there is a way to be in the field while I am in my office. Incredible experience I highly recommend it.

It's an invaluable service. I was able to walk around the camp, get a feel for the place and spot things along the way that I asked about.This is not just helpful to complete a story you are already working on, but to also come up with new stories and understand the context.

Feelings during the virtual tour of the historic site were a mixture of enthusiasm, nostalgia, and heartbreak. Seeing that these areas still exist, even if they have suffered some sort of damage, it is very important for our history, Syrian history, and all those generally interested in history as well. It’s a very important experience and provides an opportunity for archeological and historical teams to document antiquities on the ground and connect with the people who work in these places.
