Almost 30 years after the tragic explosion in Chernobyl, a film crew and correspondants for CBS visited the site to work on a story detailing the cataclysmic event. As part of the crew, filmmaker and photographer, Danny Cooke, was granted access to the site for a week long exploration. Cooke seized the opportunity to create a short film which documents Chernobyl from the perspective of his Phantom DJI 2. Equipped with a GoPro3+, Canon 7D, a guide, and dosimeter geiger counter to keep tabs on radiation levels, Cooke set out to capture the footage which you can see below.
“During my stay, I met so many amazing people, one of whom was my guide Yevgen, also known as a ‘Stalker’. We spent the week together exploring Chernobyl and the nearby abandoned city of Pripyat. There was something serene, yet highly disturbing about this place. Time has stood still and there are memories of past happenings floating around us.”
