Start Your Weekend Off Right with This Beautiful Aerial Footage of Antarctica

There are some places that very few of us will ever get to see in-person. Antarctica is one of them. The next best thing is, of course, beautiful aerial footage. On a 16-day boat trip through antarctic waters, filmmaker Kalle Ljung captured some truly stunning aerial shots of the arctic landscapes and aquatic wildlife. All of these shots come from a DJI Phantom 2 and GoPro HERO3+ Black. 

So happy Friday, NFS readers! Let this gorgeous footage inspire you to spend the upcoming weekend shooting beautiful things and writing great stories and any other general filmmaking awesomeness that you can conjure.

What are you trying to say? Timelapses showcases change, and drones showcase what life would be like without gravity. They both show us something we can't perceive normally, but they aren't in competition, they'd actually work best together.

I'm talking about market saturation where for the next however many months, everything will be flooded with formulaic drone videos the way it was with timelapse footage a few years ago...

What makes this look so good?! I have been watching "consumer video" from the gopro and it all looks terrible. Even from the gopro hero 4 black. This video looks SO beautiful and crisp. Any insight?
