HDR Aerial Footage

Concept

I recently teamed up with friends to experiment on shooting and grading high quality aerial footage. The setup used for this shot is a Red Epic camera mounted on a remote controlled quadracopter, shooting HDRx video. The Red Epic is an amazing digital cinema camera often used in Hollywood productions, capable of shooting 5K RAW. I developed a novel 32bit post-production workflow for processing and grading the footage to achieve a dynamic range rarely seen in digital cinema - check it out for yourself below. We are launching a new company specialising in highest quality aerial footage - contact me to find out more.
