About this video
 
 
Date :26 September 2004
 

Greetings earthling. Take me to your leader. ( ´^ω^`)

This is a flyover video of Tokyo. The video was originally created for the Global City exhibition which took place in spring 2004 to commemorate the opening of Roppongi Hills. The concept was to shoot Tokyo from the sky but to do it in a unique way; the city was therefore "scanned". A gyro loaded ACE-601 and a digital hard drive enabled maximum magnification (72-fold) with very little wobble. The video is the one displayed on the high definition screens at Roppongi Hills.

August 2008 NHK Special - Joe O'Donnell is a U.S. photographer famous for documenting the immediate aftermath of the atomic bomb blasts in Nagasaki and Hiroshima. One of the most striking photos was of a boy carrying his dead brother to a crematorium. The photos didn't necessarily bring happiness to his later life.  After his death, O'Donnell's son Tyge discloses the photos on the Internet and continues his fathers legacy to insure that people will not forget his story.
