This short, by filmmaker Paul Trillo, and praised by TIME Magazine as one of the 6 Most Innovative Drone Videos of 2016, just premiered on Vimeo Staff Picks. It’s a very bold concept. An almost 10 minute long short film shot in a single take. But this wasn’t like your typical long take. It was shot entirely with a drone.
Using the DJI Inspire 1 with Zenmuse X5 camera, Trillo and his team faced a lot of challenges creating the short. Timing & choreography, dialogue replacement, not to mention keeping the camera flying perfectly for so long to capture it all. And while an impressive technical triumph, it isn’t at the cost of the story.
