Yesterday, two new videos surfaced both shot with drones. It’s really nice to see something interesting being filmed for once, and shows how easy it is to make slow, aerial footage look spectacular. For the Antarctica video the ingredients are: Soft ambient piano based music, trendy sans-serif font (Avenir Next Ultra Light), and slow fades. No added Jump cuts, fast snaps, or crash zooms needed.

The National Geographic film on the Nubian pyramids (which is truly amazing) goes for a much more wholefood approach, honest no-frills commentary. On board audio of the ubiquitous drone insectile buzz, and zero postpro stabilisation.
