Aerial Video and Cinematography with the DJI Inspire 1 and Canon C100MKII
Updated: Apr 20, 2020
What a gorgeous afternoon out in Clark’s Cove and New Bedford Harbor! A local friend and musician hired us to capture just a couple of aerial shots for a music video that he is the process of producing, we ended up shooting much more! Let us mention that using an aerial filmmaking tool is no simple task. Taking off, shooting and then landing the drone while on a moving vessel brings on a whole other level of difficulty. A great amount of skill is necessary to make it happen safely and correctly. The DJI Inspire 1 handled the offshore wind gusts without any issues.
In deciding what else to bring along for the shoot, we took along with us our C100MkII and GoPro Hero 4 to get some additional B-roll footage for ourselves to work with. In doing that we were able to cut together this vignette piece to showcase just how seamless each of these distinctly different camera systems can be cut together for an undoubtedly cinematic final product. You can literally call this a “just for fun” piece, we hope you enjoy!
