I continue to be on the lookout for great new videos that combine the aerial vantage point that quadcopters enable for videography with great subject matter for filming. And I have found another one!
The New York City Drone Film Festival (NYCDFF) was held on Saturday, March 7, 2015. This is the world’s first film festival exclusively dedicated to drone cinematography. NYCDFF allows aerial filmmakers to showcase their work that is shot around the world. There is emphasis on flight technique, aesthetic beauty, and much more.
The New York City Drone Film Festival was first established in 2014 by director, photographer and aerial cinematographer, Randy Scott Slavin. “I’m tired of drones being synonymous with questionable legality and FAA regulation.” Slavin said, “I want to celebrate the art of aerial cinematography.
A panel of 15 judges presented awards for the following categories: Narrative, Landscape/Travel, Reel, FPV/Proximity/Technical Flying, Architecture, X-Factor, Most Epic Dronie, Best in Show, and Audience Choice Award.
The video I am featuring here was the NYCDFF 2015 Audience Choice Winner. Besides being my favorite of the winning videos, it is very appropriate to be featured here on FlyBoyz as it features an aviation venue as it’s subject matter. Enjoy the video!
