Neat Drone Video Shows Gorgeous DTLA Skyline At Night

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

While we've all seen downtown L.A. at night, this new drone video gives us a glimpse of the highrises from a different angle: from up above.

The gorgeous high quality clip shows breathtaking views of the downtown L.A. skyline. We see glittering buildings reflecting the lights from other skyscrapers, including the U.S. Bank Tower and One Wilshire building.

The video was created by the filmmakers behind Orange County-based company Vertical Prime. Jason Newton, the drone pilot who shares a director of photography credit for the video with Tim Worden, has been flying RC planes and helicopters for more than 20 years, according to Vertical Prime's website. So, we can see how he can deftly maneuver a drone.
