Vietnam-based filmmaker Rufus Blackwell has created ‘korean mirrorworld’, an experimental video piece combining drone lapse techniques with a mirroring effect. Blackwell’s techniques combine motion control through planned waypoint missions. Visual effects software are then used to mirror the ground in an almost ‘inception’-like effect.

As Blackwell explains, it is possible to set the drone up like a motion control rig in the sky.

“You can repeat the same set of camera moves at different times of day to create a beautiful day to night transition”.

Blackwell also employs his compositing and animation skills to track, smooth, and simulate additional movements which creates the motion effects in the video.

Blackwell then flips the image with a soft matte to create a mirror-world effect.

The scale can be adjusted in post-production to create a unique perspective.

The inception-like video demonstrates Blackwell’s expertise in video-editing skills.
