Flying the Freefly ALTA first person view with the Red Dragon and Canon 16-35mm lens. Used the MoVI controller in MIMIC mode for the beginning shots and regular dual operator mode for the rest. Focus and zoom were hooked up with the Freefly Wedge and Heden Motors.
The Drone Aviary reveals fleeting glimpses of the city from the perspective of drones.
It explores a world where the ‘network’ begins to gain physical autonomy. Drones become protagonists, moving through the city, making decisions about the world and influencing our lives in often opaque yet profound ways.
This film is part of The Drone Aviary Project, by Superflux, which investigates the social, political and cultural potential of drone technology as it enters civil space.
