This 4K video of Boston shot from a helicopter is gorgeous

It was shot by four local college students.


We’ve seen Boston time-lapse videos. We’ve seen Boston drone videos. We’ve even seen some high-flying Boston urban skiing videos. But seeing Boston filmed in 4K from a helicopter is pretty impressive.

That’s exactly what you get with Breathe, a short film by Emerson College sophomores Jack Bushell, Jordan Kines, Diego Rosende, and Nick Vigue.

“We haven’t seen Boston like this before, from a helicopter and in 4K,” Bushell said. “This was just something where we wanted to go next-level.”

To capture the beautiful footage, the quartet reached out to Tuckamore Aviation, a helicopter company based in Norwood. On April 17, the filmmakers took to the sky from around 7:30-8:15 p.m., capturing the twilight of a gorgeous Sunday evening.


“Seeing Fenway Park from above was really incredible,” Bushell said. “The whole project just let us capture the beauty of Boston.”
