The concept for this weeks drone video started as a simple active track test. Soon it became a challenge to see how cinematic I could make shots of a car look. Ultimately it wound up being a trailer for needing to go out and buy milk.
All of the shots (including the static ones) were taken with the drone… Not that I would ever actually use it for that purpose, but I wanted to see how it would do with weird situations.
Most of the shots were in Active Track ‘Tracing’ mode. Some were done in ‘Profile’, but that seemed to act wacky a few of the times (meandering off after I stopped moving), so I wouldn’t recommend using that unless you have a lot of empty space.
It would have been much easier to get different looking shots if someone else was driving and I could control the drone more, but I guess that would defeat the purpose of testing the active track features. Who knows…it was fun to make either way.
