Take a look at this 3.5 minute short and stunning video “Balance” by Brandon Bray and Tim Sessler.

They have compile various drone and helicopter shots into one seamless work that shows New York City as an almost peaceful place unspoiled by modern life. Some of the vantages featured in the piece are quite jaw-dropping, including a fully inverted skyline, a crowd-covered 30 Rock, and a plunging aerial close-up of the massive Calvary Cemetery in Queens.

“We humans we create, we work, we stay busy from birth to death and never rest. We build, aim higher, work harder, accomplish more, and to what end? ”Balance” takes an abstract look at our modern world, the full and the empty spaces and time in which we live and choose to make our lives.”
