San Francisco filmmaker Jesse Chandler sent his drone aloft to capture an absolutely stunning overhead view of the lights and sights of Burning Man 2022 in a timelapse he named “Above the Dust”. According to Chandler, the possession of a drone permit changed the way he looked at the entire event.
While getting ready for Burning Man 2022, among all the other preparations, it occurred to me that I should apply for a drone permit. After filling out the application I kinda forgot about it concentrated on other things. When I did finally get the news that I had permission fly a drone at the event, it changed my plans for the week completely. Now I had a mission!
Chandler also notes that the last few seconds of the film were shot on land as there were a lot of people present.
Shot on a DJI Mavic 3, and an Insta360 One RS 1″ edition. The shot at 0:36 and the end are just a 360 camera on a stick, never fly over large crowds.
