When we were still in pre-production for Dark As Night in May, we ordered a 3DR Solo Quadcopter for a few aerial videos we had planned. The drone didn’t ship until late August, and then, it was followed by the 3 axis gimbal at the end of September.
Because of the delay, some of the cool cinematographic effects we wanted to include in the film were not possible. But we did get a few. One of the shots appears in the film’s trailer, and you can watch one of our test flights at nearby Bays Mountain.
The exciting news is that the Solo performs well,, gets great footage and was well worth the money for future films.
