Getaway

getaway1.jpg

Shot from the point of view of a passenger aircraft, Getaway begins with an aerial view of a generic industrial district and ends with a landing on the main runway at Los Angeles’s LAX airport. The video is presented on a small LCD screen in a plastic setting designed after a 1970s Pan Am airline tray—a relic from a time when passengers could fly in style
