2020 Video Production Update

I think it’s safe to say that the year 2020 has been a challenging year for most freelancers. For myself it was slow getting started due to the initial spike in confirmed covid-19 cases in South Korea, and then the spread around the world that followed shortly after. 

Eventually at the end of April things slowly got started again and picked up through until November which I am grateful for. Some highlights for 2019:

Flying a Drone in South Korea

2018 Drone Reel 

I’ve had a desire to start filming with drones for a while so last summer I decided to purchase a DJI Mavic 2 Pro. Having the opportunity to see the world from above and to capture it’s beauty from there was a real eye opener. Drone videos can be seen all over the place online but flying yourself is a very different and exciting experience. After working through a busy Sept and October I travelled to 7 locations in South Korea hurrying to film what I wanted before it got cold and the leaves fell off the trees. 

This is some of the highlights of the footage: 

 

I decided to go with the Mavic 2 Pro because of it’s 1 inch sensor. Finally there was small and compact drone that had a quality 1 inch sensor, exposure that could be adjusted. For myself it was the perfect drone to start off with. Who knows, maybe as the journey continues I will desire a drone that is twice the size and price. For now this drone is perfect. 

Working as a Camera Operator at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games

From the end of January until March 19th, 2018 I had the opportunity to work at the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games as well as the Winter Paralympics. I was working with the Olympic Channel as a camera operator.

Some of my tasks included:

Shooting News Content for the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympics

In the month of November I had the privilege of shooting a substantial amount of Olympic related news content in Pyeongchang, Gangneung, and the greater Seoul area in South Korea. The content varied on each shoot but some things included were:

TOTAL: Nine Reports Completed

October 2016 marked the final report that I shot for TOTAL in collaboration with 3.0 Production. Since January 2015 I have shot a total of 9 reports for them and have enjoyed the process of everyone one of them.
