Filmed, Edited and Directed by: Michael Fletcher
“USA – Ground Effect” is a title I gave to this little edit I created from my last trip to the United States. I was hoping I could revisit my origins to create a somewhat pleasing landscape film which didn’t involve the use of a drone. Hence the name “Ground Effect”. I must admit I came close to chucking in a few beauties I captured with my drone but it would of meant not being faithful to what I was trying to achieve.
Drones have revolutionised the process of landscape videography and it has made it too easy to create stunning results even if you are new to shooting landscapes. As much as it’s an important tool to get the big wow! factor from the masses I reckon you cant beat a carefully composed shot from your actual stand point using a camera like the C300. In actual fact the way restrictions are going with drones there won’t be too many places left for you to shoot with a drone so my advice is to not forget the basics.
