Swedish filmmaker Kalle Ljung and his crew shot this drone footage during a 20-day trip to Antarctica. Between December and January, the photographer and his 73-year-old father sailed through the Antarctic. The resulting droneography has captured sweeping shots of the arctic landscape, full of mountainous glaciers and breathtaking wildlife.
We started from Ushuaia in Argentina and went to Port Williams in Chile, rounded Cape Horn and crossed the Drake Passage towards the Melchior Islands in Antarctica. We spent 16 days in the Antarctic and got to experience the most amazing scenery and wildlife before we returned back to Ushuaia. – Kalle Ljung
Using his new DJI Phantom 2 and a GoPro Hero3+Black Edition, he was able to record 250 minutes worth of glorious footage, full of glaciers, humpback whales, and luminous shades of blue, pink and purple. The drone footage was edited with Final Cut Pro X and is accompanied with soothing music.
This drone video is gorgeous and can be experienced in the 8-minute short film above, titled “Antarctica.”
