In this moving story, a father (Ryan Phillippe) reunites with his estranged son (Noah Schnapp) in Depression-era America, rekindling a bond once thought lost forever. The Circle was shot entirely on the Inspire 2.
Drones have been steadily making their way into moviemaking over the last couple years, but Chinese drone-maker DJI took things a step further with its latest PR stunt: the company made a short film shot entirely with its new Inspire 2, a camera-equipped drone you can buy for just under $3,000 USD. Is this the first movie shot exclusively by a drone? It seems probable.
The 13-minute movie is called The Circle, and it stars 90s heartthrob Ryan Phillippe and Noah Schnapp (Will Byers from Stranger Things) as an estranged father and son (respectively) in “Depression-era America,” according to DJI.
