We're just back from Spain after an amazing time shooting an unnamed supermodel (she does have a name... I'm just not allowed to tell you what it is)... Working with Lorenzo Cisi, the director of the Toddla T Black Jack Music video which is soon to be released on a RED Epic Dragon 6k and the Movi M15. We also took out the Inspire for some brilliant aerials of a crazy looking location...
For this shoot we used a 3 man operation, we had Lorenzo the 'hands on' Director operating the gimbal, Guy Jenkins on the focus pulling and myself (Will Glover) remotely operating the gimbal. We've always found this is the most smooth way of operating a heavy set up and massively reduced the fatigue level of the operator, especially because they don't have to worry about making the gimbal look upwards towards a subject.
As always, the drone was operated as a 2 man set up with Stef Williams at the help with her Spanish permissions and Lorenzo took the controls of the camera for this flight.
For this shoot, we used the DJI Inspire 1 with the X5 camera and Olympus 12mm and 25mm lenses - a great combo and easily transportable on a plane with batteries.
Here's a couple more images from the shoot in Spain that you may want to have a look at. We can't wait for the video to be released and to reveal who the model was!
