Into the Solar Array

Here’s a chance in the words of John Lennon to turn off your mind, relax, and float downstream. A journey into a solar array.

Solar Array on YouTube, Vimeo and Instagram.

Music: Barracuda by Drug Cabin, licensed via The Music Bed.


The clips used in Solar Array were filmed for Princeton University as part of a campus-wide aerial project to create a video library of b-roll clips and an archive of still images. Used with permission. I am a FAA certified drone pilot.

I filmed with a DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone in 4K 10-bit DLog-M. Neutral Density filters were used to control the light, filming at an optimal aperture of f/5.6 while maintaining a 180° shutter angle. The video clips were converted from Log and de-barrelized in FCPX.

The video begins with standard views which become increasingly multi-layered and fractal as the video progresses.

Thanks – be safe, think of others, wear a mask, and social distance!
