If you watch this video at 0:37 the camera location seems to change to one further away.
I was wondering if that camera was on the VAB? Does anyone know for certain? Also does anyone know if there are any other public domain Apollo/Saturn V launch videos that were shot from the VAB? I think that launch video from that location captures both the enormous power and immensity of the Saturn V like no other.

Yes, that is the VAB roof. And there are a few shot from there. The Apollo 13 launch footage has a VAB view at 1:18 in this video.

Ben, thank you. I wish there were others like the one from 16 which actually pans with the vehicle. Also the video on 16 seems to be less zoomed in which I think gives it a greater sense of immensity.
