A Long Time Coming

As I have written before, I have had a lot of trouble with my drone since purchasing almost a year ago. I finally have it up and running, and took it to Raja Ampat last month for a week of filming. My buddy, Max Ammer, of Papua Diving, provided me with a boat and a captain, and basically told me I could go wherever I liked to film. We sat down, and marked out a few good locations, and I spent five days trying to get to them, and do as much filming as possible. I did miss you on going to Fam, but other than that, I was able to hit all of the locations I wanted to film.

The drone was fantastic. I am amazed at the stability it has, and the video and photo quality is outstanding. I was able to film in 4k, and the uploaded video on Youtube can be viewed at 4k as well…..as long as you have a good internet connection, I would recommend viewing it in 4k.

I was also fortunate to go an entire week flying over water, trees, and mountains without crashing!! I am getting pretty good at flying the beast, and even took off and landed from a small boat on most shoots.

And Now For The Premier…

When I got back to Jakarta with all of my footage, I enlisted the help of my friend, Larry Detwiler, to help edit the footage into a short film. I paid him with Diet Coke…haha….Larry teaches a video editing class, so was perfect to enlist. He did a great job. I tweaked the final version this past weekend, adding a couple more clips, but the ground work was all done by Larry. Thanks, Larry!!

So…here it is….check it out, and try to watch it in 4k if you can….

    Outstanding…just beautiful work!ReplyCancel

This past week, I was in Raja Ampat (again). As you can probably guess, it is one of my favorite places on Earth. I have lost count of how many times I have been there….I think it is at least 20 times. I only went diving four times, and spent most of the time running around in a boat and flying the drone. It was a great week, and can’t wait to go back and get more video and photos…
