Breathtaking Video Shot From A Drone Shows The Sweetest Parts Of Downtown
Randy Newman's song "I Love L.A" was the first thing that came to mind when we watched this stunning video shot on a quadcopter by Ian Wood over some of the most beautiful and haunting parts of downtown.
His nearly 5-minute video peers over some spots of L.A. we don't normally get to see from up above, and you'll see some familiar landmarks like the Rosslyn Hotel, Orpheum Theatre, street art surrounding the Arts District, and Union Station. Wood shot 50 different locations throughout the area for this footage.
He told Curbed LA that he attached a GoPro camera atop of quadcopter. And he definitely played it safe, too, by following all FAA regulations while shooting, filming at a distance from private properties, and deleting any footage that could compromise someone's privacy, as he points out on Vimeo.
And the track accompanying the video is just as good: a Yuksek remix of Chassol's "Odissi, Pt. II (Emotif)." So, basically we're telling you to turn to turn your speakers up to 11 when you watch this.
