As a media and communications student in my final year of university I’m interested in the ways collaboration betweenindustry, emerging technology and myself as a creative can co-exist based on more than just one skillset. I started in Digital media because I wanted to innovate the filmmaking space, using drones to create a start to end video project using only drones as the main camera rig, in all sizes and methods, I wanted to use them for not only the aerial birds eye views, but the spaces at eye level for more intimate shots. Upon leaving, we’ve leveraged a blog, sometimes a YouTube channel and written essays toward topics that often get left in a subject dropbox and forgotten about. I believe new technologies such as autonomous robotics are going to help creative content producers like myself gain an exciting edge over the “creating”…

GoPro Experimenting

Usually when I upload drone footage I start with the take off and landing and everything inbetween that the drone sees. To expand my skillset and perahps add some aesthetical element to my videos, I’ve been playing around with a time-lapse effect of the actual process of getting a good drone shot. This includes the car ride to the locations. This is my first attempt at a time-lapse inspired video as well as my first real attempt using GoPro Studio.

Enjoy, and please leave a comment if you notice anything or have any feedback!
