    My new Aerial MUni Film! Shot at Simi Valley's "Devil's Slide" all rock trail.
    Big thanks to Max Rosenfeld for his amazing aerial and high speed filming!

    Different strokes for different folks! I was waiting for the big crash to come. Tosh.0 will certainly have a field day with aerial shots of people doing interesting things... just saying drones are going to give a whole new dimension on how people document things

    Just some honest feedback about the editing: Cut out the cheesy transitions like the water drop and page turn, and download some fonts (a good site is dafont.com). you'll have much better videos! I really enjoyed the cuts and angles that's why I felt the feedback was warranted. Keep it up!

    Good work. Following a moving subject can be tricky work with a multi-rotor especially when the subject changes speed rapidly. Agree on less transitions. One thing to consider is that tracking shots are much more powerful than static shots. I'd also suggest some high-speed long/establishing shots that close in from far away. That can add some energy and emphasize the unique capabilities of aerial filming.

    This was the first aerial video I did with a different drone pilot, using the same DJI Phantom but he had a monitor attached to his radio, rather than on a tripod, so he could move freely. I basically described each shot that I wanted, beginning with the "circling" opening shot. I also asked if he could track very close in some shots, to simulate a steadicam, and he did a great job! This was done in July of this year at a trail called "Hummingbird", just across from the trail in the current video posted here. After making more than 500 extreme unicyling videos since 2006, I was excited to finally have the chance to make my first aerial video. We shot a ton of footage and after a tight edit I sill had a solid 7 minutes but it moves at a good clip!
