Video: Kayaks, Waterfalls and RC Drones
I've been saying that drones are the next big innovation for adventure filmmaking for sometime, and I'm happy to see that that not-so-bold prediction is starting to prove accurate. This video shows just what can be done when using a remote controlled drone to capture footage from a paddling expedition. In this case, a group of kayakers hit the water for a little whitewater and waterfall action, all of which is captured on video. Mind you, these drones aren't super expensive and out of the reach of the mainstream filmmaker. They are surprisingly affordable and can do some very cool things. Just check out the video to see what I mean.
