    I asked front of house for permission to which was agreed, I started , then a manager stopped me for health and safety reasons , I accept this with it being a cooperation etc but there was only 3 members of the public there , so I have now contacted them officially to undergo health and safety assessment , should get a better film then .

    Nice vid - do you have a gimbal? I'd guess not - that would smooth things out a bit. I like your 360 shot, maybe a bit slower and not quite so many revolutions - felt a little sea sick!

    Re Mr Manager, you did the right thing, comply and be nice then approach courteously after. I bet his H&S reasons had little grounding other than him not really knowing what to do. Being sensible and showing him the vid might make him see sense and realise you produce nice work and are not just buzzing around for a laugh.

    Great interesting location

    Nice one. It looked a bit breezy about 1.00 into the vid.

    Cheers guys,
    I have a 2 axis gimble but it needs tuning for jello and it was blowing a gale at the lift as you can see from the trees as it goes past.
    Thanks for the feedback re speeds and revolutions I will take it on board.
    Regards :)

    Nice, a slightly shorter edit would improve it, and not my choice of music but that's subjective..
    Cheers I hope the manager returns my email would like to do a proper edit rather than the 1 min of total footage I got before landing , also would be able to choose a less windy day lol :)
