The Circle, first film shot entirely on DJI’s new Inspire 2 has been released, filmed by Oscar-winning cinematographer Claudio Miranda. Watch it here.
The Chilean Claudio Miranda, Academy Award-winning director of photography on Ang Lee’s film Life of Pi and director of photography on David Fincher’s film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, is the first cinematographer involved by DJI in a series of short films shot entirely with the Inspire 2, shooting the film The Circle.
The series aims at showcasing the potential of the just released Inspire 2, explicitly geared towards professional filmmakers.
In The Circle – a great story, amazingly filmed – a father (Ryan Phillippe) reunites with his estranged son (Noah Schnapp) in Depression-era America. Every single shot has been captured on the new Inspire 2, even if the drone wasn’t flying all the time – for some shots, they just handheld the drone.
