Filmmaker Matthew Coakley on Friday posted this drone-assisted video of Baltimore’s landmarks and cityscapes on YouTube. The Patterson Park pagoda, Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Fells Point and the National Aquarium all make cameos in the video.
Coakley writes in his description that it will be the first of such videos of cities worldwide. It was shot over several days in October and November.
To film this I used a DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter, with a GoPro Hero4 mounted on it. I hope to eventually upgrade to a higher-end system, but you work with what you’ve got…and it’s still incredible the types of shots achievable with such a small piece of equipment!
