I really appreciate your feed back Dodge, thanks again.So here's my opinion. I actually stopped watching after 2 minutes and here's why.
1) I feel like after 2 minutes I had already seen everything there was to see.
2) The movements are way too jerky and fast for "my" liking.
3) I think you were flying too high in many of the shots.
4) The still images used in conjunction with the aerial shots are very low quality.
5) The music is a little loud.
I think slow, lower and more smoother panning and tilt movements would have made this a little better.
Dodge,@Tim Cameron - with Litchi are you able to pre plan your flight? A situation like this would be perfect for AutoFlight. I'm not a spokesperson nor am I even 100% satisfied with the AutoFlight app however; being able to setup waypoints, POI's, focus triggers, altitude changes and preview the flight in app (or using google earth and importing) before ever putting the bird in the air is a huge plus.
I have only done a couple of really extensive waypoint missions with the app, none of which I filmed but when I say it works great for a space like this - that's the truth.
One thing people commonly forget or don't know how to do is "storyboard" a project. it allows you to layout each shot in sequence from start to finish to tell the story. It's invaluable, makes you think! And I've always been heard to keep the length of the clip around 3 seconds max. Adds interest.Dodge,
Can you explain how you would program AutoFlight to film this shot? I would like more information about path, altitude, camera angle, etc.
I also see that this cabin has several wires and even an antenna surrounding the buildings. Probably none of this is showing on google earth or whatever you use to map the area prior to arrival. Do you scout the area before you program AutoFlight or do you modify the planned route in the field?
I would like to understand your thought process in your planning of the filming. Perhaps a new thread would be the best way to answer this question?
