  1. An Italian Man's Story

    Aloha gang! I'm back with another outside-the-box video project & happy to share it. This is a property listing video, using an on-camera interview approach to tell the story. I won't belabor the description with words, just let the video do the talking. Enjoy!
  2. Hi All, Been compiling some recent footage and thought I'd share. Appreciate any thoughts, input, etc. Of course, feel free to subscribe to my YouTube as I hope to continue to post more videos in the future. Thanks for checking it out! Cheers, Adam
  3. Those of you getting suited up to sell and market to real estate agents, home builders or developers should take some time and review some hard-hitting stats that you can include in your marketing materials. For BlueLaVaMedia pieces we simply google "Professional Real Estate Photography Statistics" Keep in mind that professional still photos are at the very core of selling to realtors. Realtors MUST have still photos to list and sell properties. So...you have something that they must have in order to even put the listing on the MLS (multiple listing service). To get started I recommend that you memorize a few of these https://www.google.com/search?ei=Q9SdWprgKtH2swXW7rrwDw&q=professional+real+estate+photography+statistics&oq=professional+real+&gs_l=psy-ab.3.0.35i39k1l2j0i20i263k1j0l7.2803.11347.0.12971.52.33.10.0.0.0.202.3330.19j10j1.31.0....0...1c.1.64.psy-ab..15.35.3123.6..46j0i7i30k1j0i131k1j0i46k1j0i67k1j0i131i20i264k1j0i20i264k1j0i20i263i264k1j0i10k1.106.2dllit3Yee4 hard hitting facts. When you make your real estate packages, consider making them with still photos at the very base of everything since they must have these. If you can get the still photography work AND the drone work you cannot be eclipsed by a real estate photographer who gets their 107. Make yourself bulletproof in 2018!
  4. What $7M will buy you on Maui

    Aloha fellow pilots, Today I'm sharing a cinematic property video that's all about the bells & whistles. This is an oceanfront luxury home on Maui, with so much style and class, it was difficult to choose what stayed in the video and what didn't. Enjoy & Mahalo for viewing!
  5. Hello From Orlando Florida

    New to the drone community. Located in Longwood, Florida in Metro Orlando Area. Would like to network and communicate with others in area or wherever!
  6. Every time I shoot in Kihei & Wailea, I imagine myself living there. It's good I don't really have millions, because I'd be broke already! This property is no exception to the habit.
  7. Ocean front, exterior-only teaser

    Occasionally, a client requests exterior-only aerial video work. These can be fun and sometimes challenging, especially when the property is tightly covered in foliage, not very large, and located along the 2nd windiest bay on the planet. Even the calm days are breezy here!
  8. Great to see all the interest in what is certain to become a vital business. Aerial photography is important to Real Estate. I am the owner of Ocean Discounts. This is a full featured UAS and we offer inexpensive drone opportunities for anyone interested. For Realtors, the final cost is passed to the seller and collected at closing. There are no out of pocket expenses for the agent. Every flight is continent upon a site evaluation and weather conditions. See our website for more information: www.ocean-discounts.com
  9. Hello fellow flyers! Just sharing a short video of our home, all shot by drone. Thanks for watching!
  10. Here's my latest work at showcasing a fairly simple 1 bedroom condo in the heart of Wailea. Had a fun time in post with this one. Aloha!
  11. 3 Houses in 1 Minute

    Aloha pilots! Thought I'd share a video from back in the early part of the year, which features 3 homes on a single lot inside of 1 minute. It was a fun challenge, and the video moves quickly, but it worked out in the end. Enjoy, and Mahalo for viewing!
  12. Checking in from Northern NJ

    My interest in drones is two fold: real estate inspections for my day job as a public adjuster, where it s helpful to have a picture of wind/rain/fire damage to a roof or multi story building, and for my interest in amateur radio, where drones are helpful in putting antenna wires up in trees in remote locations, especially for low power (QRP) transmissions. This is quite useful for both camping and also for emergency operations, especially when I volunteer for radio support of the Red Cross. Radio Call Sign: K9MBA, Amateur Extra Class.
  13. Hello UAV Coach Forum, I've been reading the forums for a while now and have benefited greatly from the information. Received my 1st airspace authorization a couple weeks to operate in Class D Airspace near Santa Monica Airport and have been ramping up my real estate work. Looking to learn more about 3d mapping and different drone applications for architecture, real estate and construction industries. I currently work full time for a real estate agency doing all their videos - (Would love any feedback) Big thanks to Alan and everyone at UAV coach for cultivating such a helpful community. Cheers! Cameron

  15. Property Video

    Here's my most recent effort at producing a property video. I hope you enjoy.
  16. Hey everyone! I'm Justin, and I've been in the industry since early 2014. I started a company called Digital Sky with a guy I met who had a lot of experience in film production (as my background is in commercial flight). We had a phantom 2 with a gopro, and away we went. Since then we've come a long way, we've gone full time, and even have employees. We like to think we're the most advanced drone service provider in the state of Nebraska, and we work in multiple industries, including real-estate. Over the past three years I've learned quite a bit about what it takes to run a drone business, and I'm hoping to make that a bit easier for those of you who are looking for help with some of the more annoying parts of it all, including onboarding new clients and scheduling work. I've developed a software platform that is map based, and makes it easy for your clients to request the exact type of work they're wanting exactly where they want it. It also automates a lot of work like estimating price for jobs, developing proposals, and even handles some client communication and invoicing. We've got quite a bit of it built, and right now we're trying to gauge community interest with an expected launch to the general public in September. If you wouldn't mind taking a look, check us out at www.schedudrone.com and if you think it's a cool idea, let us know by signing up! Signing up doesn't cost a thing, and is a great way for us to know if we should keep doing what we're doing! Thanks!
  17. I don't do many property videos. I recently agreed to shoot one for a neighbor. I think its a fascinating business and would be really challenging to do it well, profitably. I'm not sure I could accomplish that. I'm posting these for several reasons, I'm proud of the work we do, I'm interested in what others think, and probably most importantly I'd like to start a thread where people don't simply criticize but share their experiences so that as a community we can figure out better, more economical ways to produce this sort of video. There more to this challenge than just the drone, photography, cinematography, color correcting, editing and delivering. So there's ample opportunity to discuss technique etc.. This is the latest, this house hasn't been lived in for quite some time and it is mostly empty, so it was a challenge to make it look interesting. Because I did this for a friend, I experimented a bit with different camera's and drones. For the aerial I used a GH4, Autel and a MAVIC. I'll leave it to you to see if you can determine which is which. On the ground I used a Canon 5D3 and Panasonic GH4. This was my sisters house from four years ago. This is my first property video. What started me thinking about this thread was this: https://platinumhd.tv/?c=aa5b43e44f If your into producing property videos you should really check out their Showcase, they do some amazing property videos. Also. here's an interesting Blog/resource for photographers trying to make a go of producing property videos: http://photographyforrealestate.net/ Hopefully those interested in learning and sharing ideas how to build a business in real estate will provide feedback and insights on how your doing. Also, I don't produce property videos for a living. Occasionally I have the opportunity to shoot them and thought I would share my thoughts and experience. I have no agenda, I'm not selling these properties or anything else. If people want to talk honestly about what works, what doesn't and what can be improved then lets make this a thread for that kind of discussion.
  18. Hello From Orange County California

    Hello Everyone! I've been reading posts in this forum for the past year or so. It's been a wealth of information and has brought some sanity to me in this ever-changing industry! As of Feb this year I'm 107 certified. Started out learning to fly manually with a micro drone practicing in indoors. After successfully hitting my wife one time two many in her head. Moved up to a Latrax Alias outdoors. It was the most stable under $100 mid size model and enabled me to build up my skills, (still have much to learn) confidence and above all situational awareness. Watched many of YouTube clips of Cassey Neistat and as much about this industry as humanly possible. I recently went to the LA international drone expo in Dec. Although not a big expo, I made some great connections and was able to benefit from the info presented in manageable portions. My Dad was a Aviation enthusiast, retired USAF airframe mechanic and B-17 flight engineer and instructor. His legacy inspired me to find my passion with flying remote sUAS's and jumping in head first (or is it nose first?) in this amazing industry. I look forward to learning more from the experts and like minded souls. Thanks Alan and to Christian for putting up with my neophyte questions. The 107 test prep and aerial film editing courses were invaluable and are continually used for reference and clarification. Happy and Safe Flying! @HinksFlyer
  19. Hello from new member

    Alan Perlman asks new members to introduce themselves, and here I am. I am a Graduate of the University of Dubuque's Aviation program and Aviation Advisory Board Member for them. My full time job is with John Deere, and in agriculture, there are certainly growing opportunities evolving. I am also looking at business opportunities within the drone industry form ag to real estate, not necessarily US based. I am amazed at how drones help in managing crops from pest control to nutrient management and storm damage assessment. I see in California, Yamaha utilizes large RC helicopters to spray specialty crops and I see this as a good market for drones. I feel drones have their place with good rules and management of those operating the drones. I want to support this to grow a viable industry for career opportunities.
  20. Hello from New Hampshire!

    Hello everyone! I'm finally getting licensed to fly my DJI drone to help out with videography for the Two Shots Photography real estate photography business! I also want to use my drone for some cinematography and just casual picture taking as well! I look forward to the class!

  22. Newbie - Real Estate Agent

    Hey everyone, I am a new member here and I'm looking forward to diving into the forums to see what I can learn and what connections I can make. I bought a DJI Phantom 3 Pro 4K and am currently working on getting my part 107 classes and exam underway. I plan to use my UAV for real estate photography and videography in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati.
  23. Hi all, In a recent Verifly newsletter, they highlighted a website called DroneBase (https://www.dronebase.com/). It offers jobs for drone pilots. Cool idea but it's a little different - you don't really know for sure how much you will get paid, or even IF you will get paid. I'm just wondering if anyone has tried it and, if so, what your experience was like. Thanks, Chris
  24. Hi community, I've had a great time with this course, and highly recommend it to others who are looking to learn about or fine tune their video editing. My aunt is in the process of putting her house on the market, so it was a perfect opportunity to test the waters compiling a real estate demo video. I'm using this experience as a dry run, to get a feel for how I would go about a project for a paying customer. I'm still tackling a few different learning curves (flying a new drone, testing camera settings, working in post for the first time), but I think they are each progressing nicely in turn. Drone work will improve with practice... I know there are a few yaw maneuvers and camera pans that could go a little more slowly and smoothly. I think I'm getting a knack for editing, which again will continue to improve with practice. Really what I'm looking for from the community, would be suggestions on camera setting and post processing (color correction) tips. These two topics still seem like "black magic", and are my biggest area of opportunity for improvement. Below is the link to the video on Google Drive, followed by the questions posed within the tutorial. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bxi0V7U9OIOmbTJFekVqT3l0aDg/view?usp=sharing Questions: What NLE did you use to edit your piece? Final Cut Pro 10.3. What resolution did you edit in? 4K for edits and then 1080p for final video. Did you decide to showcase all of your capabilities with UAS or just a specific area? If a specific area, which one? (i.e. Motion Picture Filming) I'm not really sure what this is asking. "All areas" I guess, since I'm not sure what constitutes "specific areas". How did you decide on which music track to use for your piece? It's a real estate demo reel, so I didn't want the music to be overwhelming, but I also didn't want some generic looping background. Most real estate videos have a "corporate" sound which can resemble elevator music, so I was looking for something more cinematic and orchestral. I wanted a smooth flowing background, with an occasional distinctive beat to mark transitions. How did you decide on the feel you would want your piece to take on? I was looking for a balance between warm and inviting to showcase the home, but building to something more grand to showcase the waterfront. What is the story you are telling through your footage? In the beginning I wanted to introduce the house, and drop some teasers that an epic backyard would be unveiled. I really wanted to capture different parts of the waterfront view as seen from the house, which is the perspective that a potential buyer would see everyday. Finally, most of the later footage showcases the backyard, and the amenities that could be used for outdoor recreation. I wanted an emphasis on the deck, so potential buyers could envision themselves utilizing that outdoor space. What are 3 important lessons you learned from editing this video that you know will help you in future videos? - I should have used a storyboard. Onsite I was just walking around trying to collect cool looking shots. But that made editing much more difficult to find clips that transitioned nicely from one feature to the next (water to backyard, backyard to pool, pool to deck, deck to etc). Five minutes of storyboarding probably would have saved me an hour or so in editing while attempting to layout a logical flow. Plus, because I was jumping around, the lighting changed on the front of the house between batteries. Near the end, I transition between two shots of the front of the house, which is probably not noticeable to most people, but a discerning audience will see the difference in lighting. - Just keep rolling. A few times I noticed a jerky input, or a shadow of the drone, or some other undesirable feature. Since most of the clips are relatively short, I learned I can cut out the feature, and use a cross dissolve to blend the two shots together. The backyard is an example, where the duration was too long and I didn't want to speed up the film, so I just took one second clips and blended them all together. The pan up of the deck stairs was another example. The yaw turn was very aggressive, so I just cut it out, blended the two halves together, and ended up with a really nice reveal shot of the upper deck. - Get your camera settings right. Color correction is not a magic bullet, in fact I have a much deeper appreciation for how much is involved getting a vibrant video after this project. That being said, garbage in equals garbage out. There were several great shots with smooth drone work, which were ultimately unusable because the video was too dark or light. Maybe a more experienced video editor could have salvaged them, but I couldn't get them to resemble the tone of the rest of the footage, so they ended up in the circular file. Thanks everyone! - Justin -
  25. Hi all. I've just recently started a drone business and things are going fine. I've done a few real estate shoots, but I keep getting asked about doing indoor video of the houses with my drone. I have a DJI Phantom 3 Pro and it is just way to big to do indoor stuff. It creates so much wind that any type of object, like a chair, table, wall, etc. causes turbulence for the drone and it can't keep it's position. I want to get a smaller drone for indoor video and I'm considering the Yuneec Breeze. This seems like it would be a good option for me because it specifically advertises being able to hold position indoors, and at the same time it is powerful enough to be a backup in case anything happened to my Phantom. I was hoping to get some feedback before I make my purchase. Is the Yuneec Breeze a good choice? Are their others that anyone would recommend instead of the Breeze? Thanks for any thoughts.
