What’s one of your go-to, or signature shots?
With the right conditions, a dronie (drone version of a selfie) can make for a really nice establishing shot for short films or an Instagram story. I usually go to the highest point and just send the drone away from me to give a real sense of scale and set the tone for the rest of the video.
What's an issue with tech that you come across as a content creator?
For me, I’m always traveling, so my needs in terms of production gear can change quite a lot too. For example: what I take to Iceland is very different to what I take to Bali. This is why Grover makes sense: I can rent the specific gear that I need for each trip and then return it afterwards.
Is there anything to be cautious of when shooting?
When using a drone, the helix (when the drone rotates around its subject) can be a very cool shot, especially when combined with a moving object. But, since the drone’s moving sideways, and they don’t usually have sensors on the sides, it can be a very dangerous maneuver. I’ve crashed a drone doing a helix myself, so I know what I’m talking about!
