So, loving the Phantom 4 Pro and this being my first drone of any sort I am still learning. This is my second video made with it and I've tried to get that cinematic feel to the shot. This was shot in 4K H265. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks

Very very nice footage. Pretty dang' good for a 'first flight' pilot. Just a couple of 'critic' pointers. Not a big deal though.
1) I''m sure you were trying to capture ALL angles of your subject with an intended purpose to fit the entire footage within the song. That's good. But then in some of the spectacular scenes, the shot was very fast. If you could have maintained entire footage the same speed as your first 5 seconds that would have beeen a lot better. To me, I would rather view half the footage but at more detail (slower speed) vs the entire video at a relatively faster speed.
2) Second critic, not really a big deal either. The way you introduced the ship wreckage was simply phenomenal. At first, I couldn't tell exactly if the wreckage was lost at sea or somewhere in an abandoned island. You kept the viewer in suspense up until you revealed the shot with the houses, cars and roads in the background. If you could have somehow ommited that shot, curiousity would have left a lot of people with questions. Just the same way a  Hollywood 'Mars' movie could be shot in the Nevada desert but the shot angles do not reveal background material like 'Las Vegas City' or the obvious Nevada LandScapes.

Again, job well done. I am anxious to see your second video.

Thanks. Really appreciate the constructive feedback.

Totally agree on the first point. Frustration of a laggy computer and editing made me rush and could have spent a bit more time on it. That said I didn't shoot the faster shots in double frame rate so couldn't slow them down unfortunately.

Yep, point 2.... I see what you mean. That could work leaving an element  of wonder. Next time ill see what subject i have and take that into consideration.

Thanks again.

This is a great video! the color and music set the tone perfectly! I think somethings that would take your videos to the next level is more intricate shots. You have some really awesome ones like at 2:25, 0:18, 1:35..etc. There are a bunch in here but one thing I'm trying to work on is creating more detailed and prepared shots. For example flying close by a large branch then exposing the whole tree. I think what I'm trying to say is instead of focusing on large scale most of the time I'm trying to get more detailed professional shots that have thought out composition. I'm not a professional but I hope this was somewhat helpful and not confusing... Great Video either way!

Awesome shooting!, I just picked up my Phantom 4 Pro from "BuiltDrones" in Jacksonville about a month ago, already getting my first few shots in, working perfectly so far, major step-up from the P4!
Still waiting on Mavic...

Thanks. Yeah thats true. Something i am working on is to take time and visualise a little more. Too often i find the location and steam in and don't take the time to think about the shot.

That was swell. Good job.

The ship should be sunk, to create a new reef for fish and other water creatures which thrive well, with that sort of addition to their underwater environment.

Your video skill is really quite good, and will only continue to improve. Thanks for sharing... ;-)

Whoa! F11!!! So I guess it's safe to use that small aperture without sacrificing sharpness?
Great news and Thanks again!
