Lake Cruise Shoot
A request to shoot a Sealine SC35 Luxury Cruiser could not be turned down. Darren the skipper and owner of the boat required an expert drone pilot to film from both on board and from the shore as many different aspects as possible of a cruise to promote on his website and YouTube. Working with Jamie from Harper Audio Visual Media who shot the ground based stills http://harperavm.com/index.html
Based at the premier facility ‘Windermere Marina Village’ which is situated just outside Bowness, Darren skippers his cruiser which is perfect for a birthday, proposal, wedding, holiday trip, business event – any special occasion.
Following a discussion about what was required Darren skippered the boat out towards Storrs Hall https://www.storrshall.com/
It was felt that combining one of the key venues in the shoot would be best use of time. Darren has an arrangement with Storrs Hall on Windermere whereby persons or parties can hire and board his boat from the jetty there.
The lake cruise shoot was carried out using the faithful DJI Mavic. Although not really suited to low light levels due to its camera size, it came into its element for this shoot. We were able to launch from the bow of the boat and land on matting to make sure the drone had a firm grip when returning to the deck and did not slide off. A 2nd shoot was carried out from Storrs Hall jetty area to capture the boat coming in and going out. Some of the grounds at Storrs were also filmed.
There was so much good footage that the edit took a little while to produce, but by gradually whittling down each piece of raw footage and finding a suitable soundtrack we feel that we have produced one of our best films.
Last word from Darren “Hi Simon – just looked now, it is brilliant, thank you!”
