This is the trailer for a Youtube video that never came to be. It was an early learning experience in what sort of footage works, which doesn’t and a stark reminder of the consequences of taking too much footage. That consequence is that you’ll have more footage than you’ll ever have resources for sifting through it and ultimately, it will be hugely delayed or just wont happen at all. 

It was also a lesson in the fact that it’s very hard to get good shots that aren’t boring and most people don’t care about any of your footage unless you can tie it all in to a compelling story. All in all, a worthwhile experience, because I’d never approach it the same way again. I’d certainly never take the same type of drone shots.
