New York Rising is a culmination of a series of helicopter flights above Manhattan and many months of filming time-lapses. What originally started off as a commissioned project to gather supporting scenes for a feature film, quickly turned into a showcase of New York’s beauty and growth. Each member of the Discover Footage team has their own personal attachments to New York, so flying high above the clouds, doors off was truly a moment we all felt lucky to experience.
The cloud footage was from an early morning helicopter flight, while a rare weather pattern grounded most in Manhattan. We flew into the city from New Jersey and ended up being the only as the only people in the sky in what’s normally a busy area for air traffic. We landed with over two terabytes of footage and memories that won’t soon be forgotten.
