Private Project


This dronie is one of a series of four dronies. In this serie it’s all about discovering. First, the viewer might think that he/she sees everything at the beginning, but as the camera gets closer there is a little detail which could not be seen at first: The protagonist, in the middle of nowhere, in this dronie on a small, remote island.
Usually if one thinks about areal shots, backward flying reveals the scene and gives the viewer surprises. But you can achieve the same effect the other way around. The whole dronie-series follows that concept.
