Video – The old and the new…

What happens when a state-of-the-art drone meets am old school wrecking ball.

Setting aside the fact that the videographer responsible for the following film shot during the demolition of the former Miami Herald newspaper building apparently felt obliged to use every type of titling available to him, this film beautifully captures a seminal moment in the evolution of the demolition process.

On the one hand, the film features a traditional crawler crane and wrecking ball in all its powerful and imprecise glory; on the other, it is shot by the type of quadcopter drone that are seemingly becoming an integral part of the demolition process.
