Fireworks Over Lima, Peru
Flew my drone over the new years eve fireworks in Lima, Peru. Looks like the start of the air campaign in Iraq.
I re-did my fireworks over Lima video. Someone on reddit commented that it was missing music so here is what I did:
At around midnight I flew the drone over all the fireworks at an altitude of around 200m. I wanted to fly lower but I could just picture someone getting lucky with a direct bottle rocket hit to the drone so I stayed up high. All the footage was taken in 1080HD. I tried to keep the drone moving to make for more interesting shots. I tried to use multiple camera moves when I could to make it better. For example translating the drone to the right while panning to the left etc.
After I had all the footage I imported all the best parts to iMovie. Then I simply split the clips into a bunch of different parts and randomly rearranged them with a cross fade between each one.
The music is Perpetuum Mobile by Penguin Cafe Orchestra. I also dowloaded the fireworks sound effects from iTunes and added it.
When I uploaded the final video to Youtube it detected the fireworks sound and automatically filed a filed a copyright claim on behalf the company that made them. Now all advertisement revenue shown on the video will go directly to them. Interesting.
