"This place makes flying easy as everything is so picturesque," drone filmmaker Scott MacFarlane writes in the description of his latest—a from-above look at Manhattan Beach. Viewers are treated to aerial views of the beach and the pier (which is captured in a fabulously Wes-Anderson-like shot for the title credit), paddleboarders, surfers, and kayakers—views that otherwise wouldn't be so easy to come by for non-birds. The soundtrack of classical music is occasionally dotted with the crashing of waves, and the combined effect with the beachy visuals is almost as soothing as if you were there in person. Almost.
