A unique view of the Apple Park "Spaceship" in Cupertino, CA

As we continue living under the cloud of Covid-19, I am getting more and more stir crazy, and looking for new ways to get creative. About a month ago, I had an idea to dust off the DJI Phantom 4 drone, which hasn't been used in forever, and to fly over the new Apple campus.

Normally, this would not be possible, with so many people in the area. But now that this massive campus is basically a ghost town, I thought that it would be interesting to get photos and video capturing this unique perspective.

We had perfect weather this weekend and I decided that it was time to make this happen.



As you can see from this first image, the Apple headquarters (which people have knick-named the "Spaceship") is absolutely massive! But I will get to that a little later. Before I do that, I wanted to show you some images I captured back in 2015 and 2016 as they were building this structure.


This was 5 years ago when this was a giant construction zone.



In 2016, I went back with my Phantom 3 drone and captured these images of the building midway through construction.




And as I mentioned, this weekend was the perfect time to take photos and videos of Apple Park. I flew the Phantom 4 around the campus for at least 20 minutes and had a great time collecting really exciting video.

I got home and started going through the video clips to build a short film of what I had seen. As I was putting together the different clips in Adobe Premier Pro, I realized that it would be really cool to go back through the old footage to combine those into this short piece. I also researched some of the amazing facts about this campus and added those to the film.

I hope that you take a look at the new video and be awe inspired for yourself. This is like no other building you have ever seen.
