    Barge Pier is a military artefact in Gunners Park, Shoeburyness, Essex, UK (Coordinates: 51°31'15"N 0°46'54"E). It formed part of a the Shoebury ranges which up to the turn of the century was run by the Ministry of Defence. The beaches are still off limits to walkers due to the potential for unexploded ordnance

    This footage is from the DJI Phantom with the Zenmuse Gimbal, flown with a Fat Shark Dominator on 5.8ghz. I was doing some test flying over a pier in preparation for a flight over the nearby Southend Pier which at a mile and 1/3rd is the longest pleasure pier in the world.

    The edit to cut to one of Kevin MacLeod's tracks (http://incompetech.com/). It was useful being 120 BPM as this meant a series of hard cuts to the beat relatively straight forward.

    Enjoy

    Good One
    I kept waiting for the Ninjas or invaderes to arrive and the movie to start.
    Probably mentioned the frame rate of the original but what did you slow it downtoo and use a plugin?
    Now that you have done that could you replicate without fat shark?

    thanks

    it was shot at 1080p 50 FPS - slowed to either 50 or 25% depending on shot, mainly 50% - I used the standard final cut pro 10 features

    I doubt I could do it without the Fat Shark now to be honest, it brings a completely new perspective and you can really visualise your shoot during the the flight - Its then two distinct disciplines - flying and directing, one is all adrenalin the other calming. So addictive.
