Selected works, 2013-May 2014. More coming soon.
In late 2012, my interest in radio controlled multirotor helicopters peaked and in early 2013 I purchased my first copter and began to fly as much as possible. I knew that new developments in aerial video technology would bring about some big changes – the effects of which I’m really just now starting to see in my career as a Commercial Director/Director of Photography.
Brushless gimbals, GPS stabilized flight controllers, and lightweight high quality video cameras: make for an excellent combination to create low altitude aerial video footage.
Aerial video is just a piece in the puzzle. It has limitations, but it creates a highly economical and efficient way of getting super smooth footage that would be hard to achieve otherwise. I love integrating aerial footage into my shot lists and like the value it adds to my projects.
Shot with the DJI s1000 Octocopter, Zenmuse 5D M3 gimbal, DJI Phantom quadcopter, and Zenmuse Go Pro Gimbal.
