Los Angeles | A Unique Perspective

Aerial Filmworks just released their newest demo reel of amazing footage over Los Angeles.

All footage created with Cineflex gyro-stabilized systems using a variety of lenses and cameras. Footage includes a unique view of the skyline and time-lapse scenes of the LAX airport.

Cameras included the ARRI Alexa-M and Sony HDC1500 with Canon 14.5-60mm, Canon 30-300mm cinema zooms, and the Fujinon 13x 4.5mm super wide. Sensor sizes were set to ARRIRAW, 2K and 1080p with recording to XR Capture Drives, AJA KiPro, and SxS 64Gb Pro Media.

My favorite shots are the opening scene, and the LAX time-lapse sequences. Great teamwork with the pilots!

Time-lapse scenes were flown at extremely slow airspeeds using the ARRI Alexa capability to set custom frame rates. The aerial team worked out of Aerial Filmworks’ new hangar at Hawthorne Airport, just 3 minutes flight time from LAX.
