Why Watch? Haven’t you always wanted to know what it’s like to fly like Superman? Of course you have.
This short video is just pure fun. Corridor Digital has a first-person POV winner here, but it’s also a curious artifact on innovative technique. Not mind-blowing innovation, but certainly a sharp use of a drone and a GoPro camera.
We hear a lot about how easy it is to make movies now — how the equipment is cheaper and better than ever, how the internet has opened up distribution, how creativity can be instantly rewarded. This is slight, no doubt, and it’s little more than a diversion, but it’s also cool. It’s also an example of the way that video is opening up and the unexpected ways that people are using it.
The reason it’s watchable for a full 3 minutes is that they don’t merely zoom around town showing off the landscape. There’s a whisper of a story here, less in a plot-driven way, and more in a day-in-the-life way, but it’s all enough to put a Ritalin smile on your face.
What Will It Cost? About 3 minutes.
