Using Drones for Promo Videos

Aerial shots taken by drones add a lot of flavor to almost any promotional video. This was definitely one of the most entertaining shoots I’ve been on recently. I had the chance to fly for Tarzan Boat and I clipped together some of the highlights from the shoot.

Shoot Notes:

We shot on Lake Sinclair in Milledgeville, Georgia. The Tarzan Boat was loaded with a big group of friends from Athens, GA. After signing waivers and puttering out into the middle of the lake I launched my Phantom 3 drone from a nearby dock and started orbiting while everyone took their turn on the trampolines, diving boards and tarzan swing. This thing is amazingly fun! If you watch closely at the end you’ll see my favorite shot of the day with our good friend Barry rolling off the front of the trampoline. For future shoots we’ll give everyone a GoPro to get some perspective shots to mix in.
