New Zealand 25 Minute Drone Epic (4K)

Related Blog Post Here : https://www.mananddrone.com/new-zealand-25-minute-drone-epic-prores/
Filmed on the DJI Inspire 2 Drone this video features unseen footage coupled with familiar scenes but different time stamps. The idea here was to utilise all of my unused New Zealand footage and cut to some cinematic music. I thought I’d have an hours worth but turns out once cut to the music it’s only around 25-30 minutes without becoming too boring. I could drag it out over another couple of tracks but I think that would effect the overall quality.

Best viewed on your TV in 4K, make sure picture profile is set at “cinematic” or similar and turn off “motion smoothing (video interpolation)” This is very important. If you’re having difficulties finding the menu on your TV simply google : ” Turn off motion smoothing [Your TV Make & Model No.] “.

    2:19 – that looks like one of the areas where the Xena TV series was filmed.

    It looks similar to a scene in the Season 5 finale where Xena and Gabrielle find Eve in the desert.

    Quality equipment. What alot of people don’t know is, NZ can be rather windy at times and this drone smashed it 👌

  22. Saleh Al Omar on October 1, 2020 at 12:16 pm

    Spectacular. This is heaven.

  23. You Absolute Legend on October 1, 2020 at 12:16 pm

    Note: In New Zealand you must:
    Get consent of the property owner or person in charge of the land you want to fly over.
    Check with your local council before flying in public places like parks and reserves. Your regional council’s website will have information about drone use in your area.
    You must apply for a permit from the Department of Conservation to fly over conservation land.

    How did you get around the drone laws because a bunch of these places are ones in which drones can’t be flown?

    New Zealand is not safety country. A thief appeared in the mountain area in Hasting. Yesterday my friend and I’s backpack disappeared in the car… Please see the same backpack in the picture, please help the police! Thank you 🙏We drove the red car. Please pay attention to your health and property safety! Yesterday they fly to Christchurch airport 4pm from Napier

  49. TOPIX from the TROPIX on October 1, 2020 at 12:41 pm

    I went to NZ in April of 2017 hoping to get some fall color. There were two tropical cyclones and two 5.3 earthquakes. Win a few, lose a few, and a few get rained out.

  50. Poppa Jacks on October 1, 2020 at 12:42 pm

    I’m from NZ and yes the scenery is beautiful here
