Yesterday’s headlines

Today’s video

For today we have a special video showing Mount Etna in Sicily, Italy. The footage was recorded 2 years ago already by Lumen Art Studio and the short video is called: “Welcome to Hell.” Here is what the maker had to say about the clip:

“Welcome to Hell. These were the first words my guide and founder of – Giuseppe Distefano mentioned when we arrive on the summit. For me, it was rather videographers paradise. Steaming fumaroles, deep craters. Colorful surface. What more can you expect. And on top of that – acceptable wind conditions. So I was safe to fly and capture this wonderful footage.

If you have a drone film that you would like to show on DroneDJ, send us an email with a link to your video on YouTube or Vimeo and provide us some background info.
