rufus blackwell manipulates drone footage to create 'korean mirrorworld' time-lapse

vietnam-based filmmaker rufus blackwell has created ‘korean mirrorworld’, an experimental video piece combining drone lapse techniques with a mirroring effect. blackwell’s techniques combine motion control through planned waypoint missions. visual effects software are then used to mirror the ground in an almost ‘inception’-like effect.

as blackwell explains, it is possible to set the drone up like a motion control rig in the sky.you can repeat the same set of camera moves at different times of day to create a beautiful day to night transition’. blackwell also employs his compositing and animation skills to track, smooth, and simulate additional movements which creates the motion effects in the video.

in post-production, blackwell then flips the image with a soft matte to create a mirrorworld effect, changing the vertical scale of the images to give a different perspective. his videos demonstrate the range of possibilities in video-editing as drone technologies continue to develop.
