3. Sam O’Hare

Up next we have a VFX artist and director from Manhattan, Sam O’Hare. His background has given him creative skills to stand out, his drone video at the 2010 Coachella was one of the most creative we have seen. He emulated a tilt shift lens effect (a fancy lens effect usually used in regular photography and sometimes videography) from the air, which is extremely impressive. His video footage of Coachella is surreal and dreamy in a pleasant sense. Check the footage out here.
