Flying Eagle Point of View (ACE 4)

October 30, 2013 by   

It’s all about perspective…and sometimes, ethics.  This is a video of a go pro strapped to an eagle, and shows what it’s like to fly like an eagle.  It’s powerful to see flight directly through the eagle’s eyes. It’s also slightly problematic to think about how they got the camera on the eagle. He seems to be shaking midway through it, perhaps trying to get it off.  In general, I think gopro’s have revolutionized the sort of action shots we can get to make people feel immersed in a scene or a story, but I think it’s also important to think about the ethics of what we do to get the shots we want.

    I LOVE THIS VIDEO. Also I’m very happy to be able to report that I’m sure the eagle’s well cared-for 🙂 I used to work for a nonprofit run by falconers, and all their birds were a) trained to carry gear like GPS trackers, and b) extraordinarily coddled. To get the license to keep an eagle you have to go through 7 years of apprenticeship and training!

    This reminds me of a video of what so called “Falcon eye” and it shows some Falconry hunting. I’ll post that video as my weekly inspiration! check it out!
