In March 2017, I got a DJI Mavic Pro, which is commonly called a “drone” but is really just a fancy flying camera. The Mavic has four foldable arms that allow the entire aircraft to fold up to something about the size of a water bottle, but it uses a camera with a gimble and can shoot 4K video. All in all, a very impressive machine.
I’ve shot a few sequences with it, and these are two of the best I’ve edited together. If I don’t crash it, I hope to add more soon!
Since 2013, I’ve been recording one second every day using the 1 Second Everyday app and saving them to 3-month and year-long movies. I continued doing this through 2016 but stopped after New Years Eve, so these are the last movies from that effort.
I’ve enjoyed saving these seconds and preserving snippets of time with family and friends, and I think these seconds will be more valuable to me in the future, as way to go back and relive, if just for a moment, a small part of my day from over a 3.5 year period.
