The Dazzling Skyline of New York City

The most famous city in the world lights up every night with colors streaming through the sky. The Big Apple. One of the world’s major commercial, financial, and cultural centers. Also known as one of the most photogenic cities in the world. New York City is a photographer’s dream come true. The dazzling lights that shine bright through the towering skyscrapers that cover the city, allows for the perfect backdrop.

Today, in 2018, we find ourselves with some of the most advanced technology especially when it comes to camera tech. Videography allows for ultra-high definition visuals and a whole new perspective in filming.

This 12k video was shot using three RED Weapon Monstro 8K VistaVision cameras, mounted on a special rig called the Shotover K1 Hammerhead, which was then fastened to a helicopter. Phil Holland, the amazing cinematographer behind this captivating city view says, “Putting the video together in post was equally tricky, as everything needed to be aligned, warped, stitched and blended. Because all three cameras were pointed in different directions, shots needed a perspective adjustment to create a perfect rectilinear projection.”  His video "Above NYC, is shot in 12K, delivering a mesmerizing quality of New York, never seen before. 

The video shows a sparkling view of the cityscape at a bird’s-eye view, giving a incredible overview and panorama of the ‘City That Never Sleeps’. Take a look at the taping in full screen and best if viewed at 4k or 8k!
