  1. This home was quite a challenge to shoot, for a few reasons. It's an older home in an upscale neighborhood, tucked into a mostly obscured lot. Aside from the backyard bliss, this home has an amazing ocean & outer island view. From this house, you can see the west Maui mountains, Lana'i, and Kaho'olawe from every south facing room in the upper level. Not too shabby! BUT (there's always a 'but')...the interior is quite dated, the kitchen needs at least some new appliances, and there aren't really any fancy bits to truly showcase with macro shots and whatnot. Post production brought its own challenges, especially reigning in the view from inside the house. Praise be to the brilliantaires who invented 14-stop DR video cameras, adjustable video lights, and crazy complicated editing programs that maximize the data!! Enjoy and Mahalo for viewing
  2. Fun lil town home project. Golf courses are so darned helpful for lifestyle and view work! Enjoy!!
  3. You chose wisely, Peter, and congrats on your achievement! 👏
  4. Mahalo, Yes, and I'll tell ya' in a couple weeks when you get to Maui
  5. Seems to be a summer filled with challenges for us all...as this big fancy home had to be shot hand held because my Zhiyun Crane Plus decided to die that morning after about 10min of use outside. The spare gimbal was at home...on the other side of the island. 😳 So yea, a few wonky things I'd normally never allow in this video, but the client loves it, and I think it'll help sell the place. Enjoy!
  6. Nice work! This one gave me a very HGTV feel (except with better camera work), which was refreshing.
  7. Lovely use of your flying camera! These are great images, very nicely created.
  8. OMG THANK YOU!!! I cannot believe I did that...never happened before on a final cut. Fixed it, thank you! I did not take a shower. lol. I usually don't love doing the running water thing, but this place needed something to break the monotony of 'bedroom, bathroom, hallway, laundry, etc.' Thanks for the compliment, I very much appreciate it. This process is always a fun time, and I'm super stoked when someone understands that it's a story, not just a walkthrough
  9. Hazy days...they can be a real challenge sometimes, especially when it comes to showing the view out the windows. Even with the Sony a7r3's 14-stop dynamic range, this production took a good bit of work in post to squeeze the data as much as possible. I used a pair of Dracast LED lights to help out, and I think overall it was a good call, otherwise there would be a lot of contrast and noise. I could've used MORE lighting, but then I'd be dealing with harsh, unwanted shadows. I've been enjoying the challenge of using lighting and retaining a natural feel, or at least that's what I think I'm doing at the time. You can see for yourself and decide
  10. Thanks! I actually lived in this very neighborhood for a little while, but our unit did NOT have a pool or hot tub. lol
  11. And for a bonus, a couple ground shots I enjoyed from an evening stroll with the Mrs.
  12. Aloha UAV community, I just returned from a trip to Europe, where we rambled through a few countries, ending in the Swiss alps. Switzerland, as it turns out, is super drone friendly, and has a well developed, easy to understand set of rules for UAV operation. To satisfy the insurance part of their rules ($1M CHF liability for all operators, hobbyist or commercial), I found that my PPA coverage is global...so that's awesome! The trip itself was a whirlwind, and I was able to snag only one flight in this town, during fading light, so I made the most of it and had a go. Here are a couple of my favs from the set, shot on a Mavic 2 Zoom. Enjoy, and Mahalo for viewing!
  13. This is a nice image, thanks for sharing, and welcome to the forum! I especially enjoy the colors on the horizon, great job!
  14. I agree with everything pointed out here. I'll volunteer this as well....the FPS thing is great, but don't let that dictate your life. Too many people get hung up on using 60fps as a bandaid to their inability to maneuver a camera slow & steady. That's not to say that shooting 60fps isn't great, but really only when necessary, such as high speed panning, high speed action that you intend to slow down in post, etc. But for the normal just flying around, it's best to get a good set of ND filters and use a lower frame rate. You'll be pleased with the results.
