author: Elmira Sabirova

Ufa Film Company Flycam Aero posted on YouTube a video "Born in Bashkortostan" dedicated to the first in the history of Ufa open air symphony concert — at Ufa amphitheater. The seven and a half minutes video is a joint project of the studio Flycam Aero and the National Symphony Orchestra of the Republic, ordered by the Ministry of Culture RB.

Work over the video took more than a month. Technically, the new project was more difficult than the «Over Ufa» video clip which rocked the entire Bashkir segment of the Internet. The idea supposed aerial and ground shooting, as well as technology of time laps. Aerial shooting was again conducted using an oktocopter — heavy radio-controlled aircraft with installed professional camera Canon 5D Mark II. The other solutions required additional equipment.

“We wanted to show preparations for the concert — both how the stage was prepared and the amphitheater was filled with spectators. Fireworks over the amphitheater were shot by the camera from the oktocopter — at the height of about 320 m, the director of the Flycam Aero Damir Baiburin says.

Musical background of the video is Johann Strauss waltz "The Blue Danube" performed by the symphony orchestra Apollo. The music was legally purchased from the copyright holder.

In the near future Flycam Aero is going to start working on a new project devoted to the New Year.
