Proposal on the Beach - Paparazzi Style

Recommended Posts

Aloha UAV'ers!  

Thought I'd share something different from what we normally cover.  I was recently contacted and asked to film a marriage proposal on the beach, but requested to approach it paparazzi style.  Of course I was happy to oblige.  I met with the fella popping the question early that morning, and set him up with a small wireless lav mic.  He hid it in a button hole on his collar, and tucked the transmitter into is back pocket.  My son posed as a beach-goer with a handheld camcorder, we hid a stationary camera on a tripod in the coastal shrubs, and I set up around the corner with a drone...just another beach goer with a drone, see? lol.  The audio at the beginning is quite rough, because they were waking into the wind.  I had instructed the guy to turn her face into the wind once he arrived at 'the spot', which he totally did flawlessly.  This was a fun little project, and I think I'm going to start advertising this more for 2018.

Mahalo for viewing!
