Drone’s-eye view of Berlin: Watch the TEDSalon intro video

Posted by: Tedstaff

This wow of a video premiered today in Berlin at the first TEDSalon in Germany. Filmmaker Christopher Kippenberger, a pioneer in using drones, asked artists and independent filmmakers to pick a Berlin landmark and use camera-equipped drones to capture it on video. Some of them flew the aircraft daringly over places that have never been filmed before from this perspective—from the Reichstag to the Victory column. From their shots, Kippenberger pieced together this beautiful and haunting view of the city. Here it is: Berlin from the perspective of the drone.
