Hey there,

A little over half a year ago I set out to make a drone-only short film. I originally wanted to release it in the Summer of 2023, but then the annual Skypixel contest's deadline came into the picture. Enjoy

I have to admit I didn't really understand the message (old ears) but the imagery was great to watch.

Thanks a lot, and to everyone else who shared positive thoughts. To answer your question, the narrative was written by me specifically for the film. The voiceover was done by 2 other amazing people to make the writing come alive

In the meantime some film festivals picked it up such as Liftoff, and Cannes Shorts!  
I am struggling to get any traction on Skypixel however (https://www.skypixel.com/videos/ancients-a-drone-only-short-film). Not sure what would be the best way to put the video in front of staff...

Thanks for appreciating the work put into this. You're totally right, at some point after rewatching some of these sequences for the 100th+ time as I was making adjustments and polishing the video, I felt like I had enough. It's like with sugar. It tastes nice, you like it, but if you eat a cupful of sugar every day for weeks then eventually you'll get sick of it haha

Wow, this drone video is absolutely breathtaking! The aerial footage is incredibly smooth and captures the beauty of the landscape in a unique and captivating way. I can only imagine the amount of skill and patience it took to capture these shots. The editing is also top-notch, with perfectly timed transitions and music that complements the footage perfectly. Thank you for sharing this amazing video with us. It's truly inspiring to see what's possible with a drone and a talented operator behind the controls. We can discuss more drones on dronesinsights
