I took a stab at creating a "tiny village" video of Leesburg, Virginia, using my Mavic Pro.  This was about three minutes of video in each clip, sped up to run about 15 seconds each.  Shot hovering in standard GPS mode, not tripod mode.  This is called the tilt-shift effect that is supposed to give the illusion of looking down on a toy village.  Don't know if I achieved that, but it was a fun diversion for the afternoon.

Before I read your remarks. At first glance I thought it was a miniature village. Really neat.

You must explain how to do that tilt-shift.

These are really cool - I think it is safe to say that you achieved a successful tilt-shift effect. Think I'll give this a try myself soon.

Thanks for the comments, all.  I won't go into a tutorial here because it varies a bit based on the video editing software used.  I did this with (free) Davinci Resolve, but search on YouTube for tilt-shift and your editing software name.  Basically, it is capturing video from a height looking down on the subject from an angle.  Then using masking techniques you blur the lower and upper portions of the video in a gradient, giving it the impression of depth-of-field blurring.  Jack up the contrast and saturation a bit to give it a toy appearance, speed it up about 500 percent, and you have your toy village.

I’ve always loved this technique.  I’ve tried it in still photography. Now I’ll have to do it with video. Thanks for sharing.
