My first Drone film...

Recommended Posts

I hate the word drone, as it conjours up so many negative emotions, far better to be referred to as a UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) :smile: I was up at the crack of dawn on Sunday and by the evening I had edited this short film, which to be honest, was only supposed to be test footage. However, I was so impressed with the footage, I thought I'd put together a short film and share it online. I hope you like fellas.. BTW, watch in HD fullscreen!

A fantastic footage indeed, Howard! :good:

 

I would love to buy a drone myself. Maybe one day.

Something like this has been my dream since I can remember.

 

And yes, some idiots here and there make the name get some bad associations.

I hope it won't result in drones being banned for most people, which some projects already include.

 

Could you share the location of the film?

Thanks for the kind words fellas. To answer, I have started a business offering aerial survey work for industry, and film and photography work to the media, as my background is TV cameraman and photographer. The location is the Chew Valley in north Somerset, a beautiful part of the world. As for the equipment, it's a Sky Hero Spyder 850 quad with a Zenmuse H3-3D 3 axis gimbal and a GoPro Hero 4 Black Edition camera. All the material is shot at 2.7k res in protune mode for maximum quality. Cost of the rig is about £2,800.

 

In the UK, to work commercially, or receive any payment of any kind, you have to be qualified and to have the correct insurance, that alone can be between £2000-£2,500. That's only the start of things. However, to fly as a hobbyist, that can start as little as a few hundred pounds, but you still have to abide by the country's civil aviation regulations, or run the risk of a serious fine.

Awesome footage Howard! I thought it is DJI drone. :)

Of course there are bad assoiations because bunch of idiots are using them. Few of you maybe know about an incident in one soccer game where some away supporters provoked the stadium with the one very negative flag carried by a drone, hovering above the center of the field for minute or two!
Another example is filming the planes on landing, but practically the drone is on a glideslope path!
