Tucson, AZ || Drone Reel #1

My first reel of many to come of a tranquil and peaceful flight over the University of Arizona and Gates Pass at the most colorful time of day. Don't forget to watch in 4K if you can! Music: "Northern Lights" by Lights & Motion


Among the Ruins || Drone Reel #2

A quick reel showing some drone shots I did for a junior thesis film at the University of Arizona. Among the Ruins is a post-apocalyptic story filmed in Wilcox, Tucson, and Hereford, Arizona. NOTE: I am aware there is a drone shadow in one of the clips, this is merely to show types of drone shots, it is not an editing reel.

Tucson Colors || Drone Reel #3

Trunk Short Film || Drone Reel #4

I've been waiting to share this one for a while now. I went up to Mt. Lemmon which is on the northern side of Tucson and tops out at 8,000' elevation. I drove up the night before last minute to stay in a cabin at the top of the mountain with 12 other film students. 

They wanted my drone shot to be the opening sequence for their short film "Trunk". The shots in this video is just a compilation of what we got, not all were used in the film. We got up at 4am to get to the spot and set up on time. Luck was on our side because it was foggy and very moody. I was supposed to drive up that same morning, and if I did, I would not have had the fog on my side.

Forest Highlands Meadow Course || Drone Reel #5

This past weekend I had the opportunity to do some golf course flyovers at Forest Highlands in Flagstaff, AZ. I've been waiting to get the drone up there because it is such beautiful property. Since it is within 5 miles of Flagstaff Airport, I contacted the airport director who gave me the unofficial "approval" to operate recreationally in the airspace under certain specifications.
