Behind the Hike

 

In addition to our other productions,¬†Butcher Bird Studios is moving into outdoor and adventure video. The quadcopter is the latest tool we’ve adopted to aid in that pursuit and our other production work. In September of 2013 we ventured into the Ansel Adams Wilderness to test the copter and our own abilities.

Lakes and Copters

 

We have continued to experiment with the DJI Phantom Quadcopter mounted with a GoPro Hero 3 on a Zenmuse H3-2D gimbal (I’m glad I typed that and didn’t have to say it out loud). A few weeks ago, the four of us spent the weekend backpacking through the Ansel Adams Wilderness field-testing the copter along with some other gear. Travis and Shlain each cut together some of the test footage into two videos evoking very different moods.
