I love malamutes! When it gets down to -16C like it is today they seem super happy.

Your shots are in a pretty damn beautiful environment. In the beginning the numerous similar sequences of aerial shots moving straight forward become a bit repetitive; a rule of thumb for cinematography is not to have a number of similar camera movement shots stacked on top of each other. It starts changing up a bit more in with and over the shoulder fly-bys and simulated crane movements as well as a couple spirals tossed in, but you should definitely mix it up a bit more.

That said, you should also anchor the movements by cutting in much more close up shots. Always having wide angle aerials and wide angle ground level movements gets very tiring to watch; at a certain point, you want to know what the people in the shots are doing. Facial expressions are just as important as beautiful vistas if you want to bring in a human element (or in this case, a human and dog element). For that, you need a tripod and another camera; a quadcopter mounted camera isn't going to get all the shots you need for a balanced piece.

Typically you're going to want something for close ups and 3/4 shots, something that can move (like a dolly, crane, or stabilized camera), and finally a quadcopter to get those beautiful wide angle moving shots.
The color grading is pretty good, and some of those shots looked like they were shot in some difficult to grade circumstances (very cloudy, little sun, flat light). Some scenes could've used a tiny bit more saturation, but again that's difficult in some of the light you had to work with. Also good job with not executing any obviously robotic camera moves, either from the gimbal (the first shot with the tilt up was well controlled and didn't look like a security camera moving around) or the quad.

Mauro,

Beautiful!  I really liked the way you included yourself without getting the preoccupied "I'm staring frantically at my controller" look that I always seem to have when I'm shooting.

Question:  Over on another thread, some of us are trying to figure out why our image quality goes to crap when the temperature gets cold.  Mine is almost okay at 25 C, but gets poor at 0C and really bad by -10C.  Since DJI recommends flying between 0-30C, I'm wondering whether:  (1) my camera lens is bad, or (2) every P3 camera just gets bad below 0C.  So...

...how low was the temperature when you were shooting this, and did you see any noticeable degradation in image quality?  Your footage looks pretty sharp to me, but I'm only seeing it at YouTube quality.

I've used Premiere for editing and grading.  Last version have a simple but powerful GUI for grading, exactly like Lightroom or Cameraraw. I've three batteries (but my house is just a 20km away from this place ) The place is Campo Imperatore, L'Aquila, Italy. Thank you for watching and comment!
