It’s all about discovering. Isn’t it always about that? In this video we might think that we see everything at the beginning, but as we get closer there is a little detail which we didn’t see at first and which we can get very close to. It’s our friend Mace … in the middle of nowhere. Usually if you think about areal shots, backward flying reveals the scene and gives the viewer surprises. But you can achieve the same effect the other way around. This is the first clip of a whole series of dronies that follow the same concept.
‘Floating’ was officially selected by the jury of the NYC Drone Film Festival 2015, the world’s first drone film festival ever, and was awarded best film in the category ‘Most Epic Dronie’. Read and see everything about our trip to New York City to the festival and our award here.
And: Can you believe it? The clip together with others of our dronies will be exhibited at the ‘museum angewandte kunst’ (museum for applied arts) in Frankfurt (Main) in april 2015. Crazy!
"It was great fun to shoot this dronie and a privilege to hang out in such beautiful surroundings. It was on our surface interval at a divespot called 'Blackbeards Treasurehole' off the southern end of Eleuthera. Mace swam a few hundred meters away from the boat and relaxed on the surface. Micha was checking the distance from surface to drone while I had the goggles on to frame the shot. It's always a bit tricky to catch the right moment before shooting the drone straight up in the air. Mace was doing such a great job so we decided to stick to him as our dronie-model." - Flo
