This is my first short Mavic Pro video, I would love some feedback. Settings used: 4K, PAL, 24fps, Edited in Fcx. Almost everything shot in Cinelike. In the first scene I was 500 meters up - a bit scary!
Any suggestions to get a more professional look is very much appreciated!

Looks beautiful, color and lighting looks great. I use the same settings myself (and almost exclusively Cinelike as well). I'll leave tips to someone else, this looks very pro to me

500m high? Here in Spain is illegal to go over 120m...
I like a lot the mood and the colours of the images. And the clouds from the first scene are just amazing.

500m is incredible... in the U.S. we don't get to go over 120. Maybe if we find a particularly obliging airport and ask pretty please on a slow day for flights, we might get above 120m.

Thank you for posting that video. I will be saving it, since it's the first glimpse of such altitude I've seen.This is very beautiful filming. Smooth.

Can see it now, it must had been the mobile phone browser! Maybe the browser vimeo uses is not compatible with them!

Cool video by the way!

Beatiful video. Jus wanna say 120 meter is the max altitude limit i Sweden as in most Europe. Pleas obey the law. Its in fact not even alowed to fly cameradrones i Sveden since november 2016, exept for lawinforcment purposes.  Wating for a new and more liberal law this summer.  This high altitude flight is not the best agument in the ongoing debate.

500 Meters! That is crazy.  It's a great shot but I don't think it's worth the risk.  Great video!

SMART move not revealing where your flight took place. Really keeps the Drone Police aka Airholes quiet and not yapping about FAA and other government agencies. My next high altitude flight I make above the clouds is going to take place off of a boat over international waters.

Sorry. Didn't mean to upset you. Just a friedly advise to fligh within leagal higt an in VLOS ( visual line of sight ). We dont't need negativ publisity regarding careless drone pilots. Strict regulations and maybe pilot sertificates and mandatory drone insurance are topics that many countries are  discussing  If you did fly somewhere in Erope that is.. Take car and fly safe.

Great Video! I think if you want to bring it up a notch try cutting down your shots by that I mean don't stay focused on one shot to long (in editing) faster transitions focus on the best shots and then cut to the next with the music. you probably could have shaved a minute off this and it might have had a stronger impact. Also make sure your exposures are right there were a couple times when they your highlights were a bit blown out so just dont over expose things. It's happened to me a few times too sometimes it is unavoidable... but overall I really loved your video great cloud shot and I also love the chopped logs. Keep it up man amazing first video and I hope this was helpful!

Footnote: RC aircraft have been in the air for decades. And flying outside the bounds/illegally, has occurred...and will continue to occur. And Generally speaking? As long as nothing bad happens? It goes unnoticed. (Check any # of youtube videos of RC flights over people, highways, above clouds, over active amusement park rides) and sometimes (like in this case below) applauded. Note the police WEARING the FPV goggles and APPLAUDIING this NYC flight
