DroneAbove GoPro Edits
A few months ago GoPro contacted me about the whale footage I shot and I also showed them the footage of Ekolu Kalama and they wanted to use both sets of footage! Getting footage that is good enough for GoPro is something I am proud of because I get to see it next to all the other amazing footage that is shot on GoPro. I have not been flying much in the past month or two because I have been focused on learning to surf but I am finally going to fly again with Ian and Marty from DroneMaui.com. We are going to go fly around the windmills / wind turbines on the west side of Maui early Friday morning. Hopefully we get some cool footage - I love collaborating with these guys!
Below are the two videos that GoPro put together. In general, the edits turned out pretty cool but my favorite thing they did was to add some sound effects like the sound of waves and the whales exhaling. I am about 100% they did not pull that from the original sound files! I am really looking forward to getting more awesome footage this winter from my drone in maui! Aerial photography is so damn fun.
Both of these videos were shot on the GoPro Black at 720 120FPS. The GoPro takes awesome videos of surfing and whales but it is also an amazing camera to shoot your kids with. Some of my favorite family videos have been shot on the GoPro. The wide angle lens makes it easy to get everything in frame. I love my GoPro!
