Very exciting this month as the new DJI Inspire 2 with X7 Camera with four prime lenses and all the other bits arrives at Perfect View Productions Ltd ready to up the came of the company. It is a real beast and some beautiful imagery from it hopefully in July I'll pop some of my own footage out as busy with a few jobs for Television with it first.
This little project came about back in January as myself and the Casio Northern UK Rep Warren Halliwell started putting together a story to film about the new CASIO Rangeman for www.casio.co.uk. It's tricky planning days for filming when you want to get up onto the Cairngorm plateau at almost 4000ft with a drone and other cameras especially so far in advance.
The day we filmed the tops of the hills only cleared for 30minutes after several hours walking in the mist on the hill. Those 30 minutes gave us our spectacular opening shots, these would be hard to repeat. (friends were out skiing on the tops all day and said that was the only time it cleared for them too. My drone filming, story telling, camera and mountain/ropework skills all came into play to bring this film to completion.
It has done well with over 434K views so far:)
Hollywood comes to Scotland for the new Pokemon film and we did the safety in many locations for them. I stepped back into my MIC (Mountain Instructor) role to join the www.mountainandwatersafety.co.uk team of which there were quite a few on this big budget feature.

I spent a few weeks this month searching out locations for the new Hollywood Pokemon film. Was a nice change from the usual. I drove around the country taking pictures and speaking to land owners etc. Can't reveal much really but I visited a lot of places and they will get narrowed down by the folks in London.

A super interesting time filming for Unreasonable Impact sponsored by Barclays.
Unreasonable Impact is well worth a look www.unreasonableimpact.com the people who run this and are attending on it are incredibly inspirational. I filmed with my GH5 and drone, Interviews, GV's and shots of workshops and talks. Worked with a great team, Rupert (filmmaker), Chad (photographer) and Jessy (sound person).
