Please let me know what you think!
This looks like it was shoot using a boom and wide lens except for the street driving sceens and they could have been shot from a hill or tall building, especially since the wasn't any apparent camera movement. but after reading your tags using an RC Heli makes the views more interesting
Sadly the footage doesn't show the full qaulity of the red cam, but the video looks good
Thanks for the comments. I don't know how you could get the bridge shot with a boom being it was 200 feet above the river, above and beside the bridge! Flying over the trees would be kind of a trick also.
I haven't quite figured out how to get the footage to look good after Youtube compresses it. Maybe I need to upload a H.264 in 4K.
Who cares about what YouTube does during processing, it's awesome footage! That is awesome you can get such unique angles with absolute freedom.
Love your shots Heliman. Did you use any type of stabilizer or smooth cam in post ? what frame rate dd you use? Do you know if I can find that kind of service (rc) in Manhattan? Is it allowed or not allowed in some dense areas? Thanks.
This footage did get a very small amount of warp in CS6 to get rid of all the residual little bumps and wiggles. For TV work, most of our footage gets used without post stabilization but for the big screen it needs to be as flawless as possible. We have a new super heavy lift rig that requires absolutely no post stabilization. This was shot at 30 frames and will be finished in 24 for the final production.
