2020’s coronavirus pandemic has literally changed everything, everywhere. Although social distancing and self-quarantining measures have restricted where us humans may go freely, drones, on the other hand, were still able to get plenty of air time (in their designated fly zones, of course) to capture the incredible imagery of the empty streets and desolated places. While many of these films conveyed. the eerie feelings of these lockdown scenes, there were also some that revealed positive messages around community support. In all cases, however, the power of drones to bring a unique perspective to film was showcased.
Our team at AirVuz wishes the entire world strength, health, and optimism as we push on through the days ahead.
