To speed up planning aerial shoots, there’s a helpful plugin for Google Earth that allows you to show OS Maps at any point with a layer you can turn on and off, created by Gavin Brock and available here: http://brock-family.org/gavin/google-earth/osmaps.html
For our mixed ground and air shoot for Britannia Movers International, we decided to try something new. By combining DJI’s new Osmo with our existing S900 drone, we were able to shoot everything in motion.
Prompted by our delivery of the DJI Osmo, I thought I’d put together a brief post running through the importance of getting good sound, and running through my list of minimum viable kit.
With my boiler playing up over the last week and a few freezing nights whilst parts have been on order, I’m reminded of two things. How annoying it is to be cold, and how quickly the body adapts and forgets that your house is about as warm as your fridge. Batteries on the other hand, do not forget, and as we know are very temperature sensitive. This is where I could insert a pun about my wife, but as the boiler is now working and we are speaking again I’ll resist the urge.
