"Spot the Location" Aerial Video!

Good afternoon to you all

Here's a short Showreel video I have cobbled together which may be of interest and I'm about to submit for a drone videography competition called #400ftBritain - basically a Best of Britain from the air. This vid required a lot of brutal and freezing early starts, especially over the Xmas/New Year break, when more well balanced folks are probably fast asleep, travelling to various locations in SW England and South Wales to catch the sunrise in an attempt to get the best light. As most of the featured locations or landmarks are quite well known I suspect those who live in the UK will recognise many. However if you fancy a challenge (and the mountain shots count as 1 location) there are 17 specific locations or landmarks so see how many you can identify from this unique perspective. If you manage to get all 17 you win a virtual pat on the back and rousing chorus of "For he/she's a jolly good fellow" from me!

Anyway if interested in viewing a quick 3 minute HD video featuring some of the wonders of the UK then please use the following link:



All constructive feedback welcome, please feel free to share and hopefully it will brighten up a tea or lunch break up with a brew and biscuit and transport you up into the skies!

Cheers

Dave

PS Please note most the film was shot very early or late in the day to try and avoid disturbing anyone, the climbers + walkers were spoken to in advance and were very happy to be filmed and permission was granted for the odd location which required it!

Yeah Dave fantastic shoots, cool locations and an overall impressive atmosphere- very nice to see.
It was sure a lot of work and time you spent into the project.
Which equipment do you use and how high can you go with the drone?

Ciao Rob

Hi Rob many thanks for your kind words and taking the time to post some kind feedback. I use a Phantom 4 drone and I have been up to 200 metres altitude, though I suspect it could go quite a bit higher...

Cheers and happy wednesday to you!

Awesome video.The landscape is pretty nice and you took some really smooth and calm footage and made a great video. The music also fits perfectly. Had to laugh at 1:30, wtf was that? You got some nice angles in there like the one with the street at 2:38. Great work, I also gave it a like on yt

Hi Mister20seven and apologies once again for the delay in responding but I have been away for a few weeks! Anyway many thanks for your kind words and the scene at 1.30 was the Cerne Abbas Giant in Dorset looking "very proud" with himself and the road at 2.38 was shot at the amazing Cheddar Gorge. Thanks again and especially for the like on you tube so do feel free to subscribe as plenty more aerial and climbing vids in the pipeline! Cheers Dave
