Filmed on April 3, 2015 in the remains of Burwood in Christchurch. The sheer size of the area is immense. Gathering all the shots took me more than 2 hours

The map in the bottom left corner throughout the video is satellite photography obtained from Google Earth Pro. It gives a wee bit of context as to what used to be on the ground beneath the drone.

Despite being Good Friday, there was a lot going on in this area. Contractors were spraying hydro grass, there were a good couple of dozen cars cruising around and disobeying the signs. People were also on bikes and on foot.

The drone used is a DJI Phantom 2 Vision+. I flew no higher than 90m during the shoot, and no occupied property was flown directly over the top of. Post-production was done on Sony Vegas Pro 13.
