    I got a GoPro Video of the day. Filmed my daughter skating on a pond, about the third time I flew my Phantom 2 a couple of months ago. Posted an edit on Vimeo. GoPro found it and asked for a few more closeup shots and the raw footage, and posted their quick edit today! I get a new GoPro 3+B for the effort. But I am much more excited to see my daughter's smile when she watches it!

    Sorry for the brag. Here's the link:

    Great video! So GoPro took the raw video and made their own cut? Curious as to how much they worked on it. Is your edit still up on Vimeo?

    My guess is that they asked for some other footage to prove that this was the true author / owner of the footage.

    Great video!

    Truly great use of the camera platform. When you forget the footage was filmed using a quad, and start concentrating on the beautiful subject, you know you succeeded :)

    It was an interesting process. I was as interested to see what they'd do with the raw footage as I was to get the video used, since I am still learning editing.

    You can see my Vimeos here: https://vimeo.com/user2895586/videos

    I you go back chronologically, you'll see I actually posted 4 skating videos. The first one is too long and random, as an edit. Again, I'm learning. But that is the one the caught their eye. They asked for a few different shots (that one was all drone) and sent me some mounts!

    The 2nd and 3rd one were reshoots, then when I got their mounts, the last one (https://vimeo.com/86282398) was the one they mostly used. You can see my own edit there.

    Thanks!
