Zhou Jai Cun, Tanghuang Road, Pudong New District, Shanghai
May 15th, 2016
It used to be difficult to put eyes in the sky but things are changing rapidly. This documentary was made to explore how storytelling and journalism can be transformed and improved with unmanned aerials.
The construction and development of big cities will bring up changes without doubt. Zhou Jia Cun is not a special case in China or in the world. The video was made to show the changes at the backside of Shanghai Disneyland.
With drones, audience are able to see how close the village is to the Shanghai Disneyland. The village is at the bottom of the image below. Across the street, it is Disney Resort in the distance.
Since the village will be relocated in the future, a 3D model of the whole village was made using photogrammetry to remember the existence of Zhou Jia Cun.
