The Falls: An Aerial Documentary of Niagara Falls

No Words. Just a breath-taking 5 minute, 4K aerial cinematic journey above the majestic Horsehoe Falls, the American Falls, and the Bridal Veil Falls that make up the Natural Wonder known as Niagara Falls. With only the cascading sound of flowing water, the viewer straddles the edge of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, and for the first time – with the eye of a drone, experience the eye of the 300-foot high mist that forms numerous natural rainbows.

The Falls is eye-candy for drone cinematography
