  1. Hi Guys, @JBR LIFE PhotographyI love the use of rain and people. Most of the realtors in my area discourage using people in their videos. I think people want to see people, helps them visualize what they might look like in that home and makes the property video a little more about lifestyle than cabinets.. @AncientAirship thanks for viewing and noticing the improvement in everyone's techniques (accept @JBR LIFE Photography) You know I couldn't pass that up.. Jonathon is a great example of how much of what he does today would have been considered "VFX" work just four years

  2. Hiya, My wife got the Tello for me as a birthday present. Being my first "real" (?) drone, I have nothing to compare it to. I owned a toy from Best Buy some years ago that was fun, but was strictly a toy. That being said, I'm really excited to start this hobby. The Tello is super user-friendly and safe. Like a real pilot does, I have taken to logbook entries to document the time and journey. I would love to eventually get more serious with this and go for a 107 license! --M

  3. Only a few aerial shots. I used a Mavic2Pro but screwed up the settings. My fault but it would have been nice to know before downloading the footage.

  4. Hello Benjamin, Yes I would be interested in learning more about beta testing your HAMR drone. My company is Pixel Magic and we specialize in 3D CGI visual effects for TV and feature films. Most recently I just completed Raised By Wolves for HBOMAX. We use drones to create very high end photogrammetry that we then create 3D models for integration into films and tv programs. We also shoot high quality video for tv and movies. We have Part 107 experience and multi engine instrument rated fixed wing experience. You can reach me at raymond@pixelmagicfx.com. We are based

  6. @Av8Chuck Awesome information! Thanks so much. I’ll definitely talk to my firefighter friends about this and see their point of view!

  7. Government initiatives like these like to take credit and issue press releases to brag about it. I don’t believe this campaign had much to do with changing the behavior of drone pilots. We have worked with a lot of fire departments, a couple of years ago if a drone appeared anywhere near airborne operations they would shut them down. After two highly publicized midair collisions between helicopters and drones put the risk into perspective many incidence commanders have (unofficially) relaxed their zero tolerance drone policies they’re using their own judgements to make decisions.

  8. I think this is really interesting. Do the firefighters or other personnel involved have a way of identifying what type of drones also enter these areas? I'm assuming a good majority would be DJI due to their grasp of the industry, but could it be lower end models or higher end?

  9. Thank you for the warm welcome, everyone! I like the idea of doing some video structured around intended VFX, it sounds a lot less stressful than what I've been doing so far (getting hired to fix things not originally intended to have VFX, which often makes my job way trickier). Agreed that a lot of what used to be considered VFX is now the new normal.

  10. It is described as RTK, but I don't see the RTK unit(s) anywhere in the photos?

  11. Aloha gang! It's time for some more visual storytelling! This video I'm sharing today marks the last project I shot on the a7iii/a7Riii combo. (upgraded to a pair of a7Siii's). The aerial star of the day was the Autel Evo II Pro. I gotta say, the more I use it, the more I love it, although it has a few kinks to be worked out. This home was on the market with another agent for over a year, with no movement, and barely any traffic. The agent who picked up the listing is a dreamer and visionary who definitely thinks outside the box. In fact, I'm not convinced she even believes

  12. Aloha @AncientAirship, and welcome to the group! Thank you for the kind words towards the work I've shared here, that's very much appreciated. Your work looks solid to me, although I don't use too many VFX, aside from some of those already mentioned...a little steam, some tracking videos on a movie projector screen, and so on. I'm in agreement with @Talon Six Aerial in that your area market trends mostly dictate the services you'll care to bother offering. Sometimes you have to launch an education campaign to create an understanding of what is available and why someone should
