USING A DRONE FOR WEDDING HIGHLIGHT FILMS



Hey make you XV let me love you no yeah you're the one alright guys so we all know that the drone changed film the film game you know drones changed the film game because before drones it was impossible to take these kind of shots you know aerial shots before drones you know aerial shots were expensive you know aerial shots were like expensive I could just imagine like you know like regular filmmakers so a drone I use it for establishing shots so this video is only gonna be about establishing shots and that's what I'm going to talk about so I'm gonna be sharing with you guys seven establishing shots that you can take with a drone guys seven establishing shots that you can take with a drone so I know if you don't know what an establishing shot is an establishing shot is a shot that just introduces your audience to the location where the action with the scene is taking place that's what an establishing shot is I'll put on some examples as we go along so you kinda know what an establishing shot is but yes so in filmmaking is an establishing shot establishes where the action is taking place so that's what it is so I'm gonna be sharing if you guys like I said seven establishing shots that you can take with a drone and why is it good or better to take establishing shots with a drone why can't you take establishing shots with just on a regular camera or let's say a gimbal or let's say a slider or let's say a tripod it's because it's just nothing can match the view that a drone can give you you know all those tripods it's gonna be you know it's gonna be on the ground and you can pan and stuff like that you can tilt up and down you know a slider you can go from left to right back to forward pushing shot stuff like that and a gimp oh yeah you can do pushing shots and stuff like that but nothing is gonna give you that bird's eye view like a drone will so just a drawn establishing shot is just like it's fun it's unmatched dudes like like like dude it's just it's like just it's just seeing the location from above just like a bird like it's just it's a whole different ball game you know that's why when you start using a drone you need to up your prices because if you don't up your prices you're leaving a lot of money on the table you know you Neil you are leaving a lot of money on the table you know so so here are the seven establishing shots so shot number one is the up to bottom I'm shocked so the from up to the bottom so up and down shop so what I do with this shot is you start where you come where you can see the sky and everything and then you just go down and then you see the venue and then keep going all the way down till you get to the ground but you can cut it anywhere from there but the whole idea is just to like bring the drone down from like up there in the air all the way down just straight down from the top straight up and just come start coming down so that's cold the I call it the you know up to bottom shot so up to bottom Oh better yet let's call it let's let's name it a better name right now life we're gonna name it sky to ground shot so sky to ground shot yeah sky to ground shot okay sky to ground so Skype to ground Shack there you go so number two we're gonna call it on the side to side shot so what is the side to side shot so a side to side shot is just on a shot where you position the drone where you can see the building the the location the venue and then you just go from like where you don't see the building to where you see the building okay so side to side so you can even pass the building or you can go from left to right or you can go from right to left whatever or whatever side you choose to move from left to right or left to right whatever is okay just arm it's called a side to side shot just as just a shot um showing you the venue from like you know from like it's kind of introducing you know the vein like okay here is the venue and stuff is taking place you know so it's called a side to side shot so I'll give you guys examples as I'm talking so that when you get an idea and you see what I'm talking about instead of just kind of like trying to imagine it I'll show you what I mean because I've taken all these shots so establishing shot number three is one which probably everybody knows 180 shot so 180 shot is just you rotate on you you you obut the object that you're shooting in this case the venue or you know the location you just orbit the location the venue of the building just showing the building like just like rotating or kind of a move like he kind of like rotating you know you're orbiting the location so that's the 180 shot okay guys okay so number four is um the terrain shot so what is the terrain shot so it's a range shot is a shot where arm you know the drone is facing down all the way down straight up down and it's just moving you know you're just moving slowly showing just the terrain you know if it's a forest if it's you know a desert whatever I call it the terrain shot okay just showing the terrain and that's all it is it's just establishing shot and you can go all the way from the terrain go from showing the the landscape the terrain to showing whether venue where the actions taking place you know so that's also an establishing shot you're establishing like oh this wedding is taking place at this kind of area at this kind of terrain you know if you buy this by the ocean if you buy the beach so you just go from the from the from the ocean to the beach and you know it's just like you are letting your audience know that you are at a body of water or close to a body of water or you are in the forest in the woods like you just showing your terrain so you are establishing the location that's it's called an establishing shot because you're trying to get you trying to paint a picture and your audience's mind like okay we're here this is what we're dealing with you know this is where the bride and groom are they're you know they're in Iceland look at all these nice look at all these nice mountains and stuff look at the terrain or this black sand you know you just at that point you just like you're killing it you know what I mean just showing the terrain so that's cold that's what I call it terrain shot I'll give you examples so you know what I mean I use this a lot number five is the reveal shot so the reveal shot is a shot where like you know you you flying slowly with the drone just showing like the sky and then you go all the way like you kind of like you took the camera down that's what a real shot is so you reveal the venue but you start from the sky where like you're showing like okay so this is the terrain here this is the landscape and then bow this is what's taking place at you know so you can do that or you can start from showing the terrain like you know that shop which is the terrain shot showing down and then you like kind of like move the camera up to reveal where everything is taking place at where the venue is so that's a reveal shot that's what I call real shot so you're establishing the location but you give them more because you show them this is that what the place that's what the area looks like and then this is what's taking place this is how the sky look this is how the day looks this is whatever and then this is what's taking place so you revealing their location yeah so that's the review shot so number six is the skyline shot so what is a skyline shot so a skyline shot just on a continuous shot of the object plus the skies so that's what a skyline shot is where you can see the venue but also you can see you know the sky so it's all you know it's so I call that the skyline shot where you can see the skyline plus whatever you feel me so that's what I call it skyline shot like you know the skyline of New York you know showing you the buildings and the sky and stuff like that so that's what I call a skyline shot so I'll show you guys all these shots and um number seven this shot number seven is we're gonna call it the ground up shot so I just thought about it because I only had six shots so I had to come up with something so I can make seven shots because I've been talking about our sevens cinematic shots so seven here you go so the last shot is we're gonna call it the ground up shot so I'll give you an example of how I do this shot so it's a ground up shot so I kind of like just like on this works a lot if you have like a plain arm you know foreground area like a plain terrain and then you're just going like like you're just going closer to the ground you have to be close to the ground and then as you get to the location to the venue you now go up with a drone like you just go up and all the way into the air or do whatever but you just kind of like go up or you could do other things where you can just lie put the camera down or whatever but yes so it's called on the ground up shot so I guess it's the opposite of the sky to ground actually it's not cuz the sky to ground you just go up and down but this one you like you it's like you're kind of like you're pushing into the venue so you're pushing in so you're pushing into the venue and then you go all the way up so you establish the venue so we're gonna call this the ground Oxshott okay guys so those are the shots and hopefully this video was helpful to you guys and hopefully you get some ideas for your next wedding video and you get some ideas of how to use a drone I'm sure like indie filmmakers like we're not even you know didn't have the money for aerial shots you know that's why I probably like back in the days when you see a lot of these films they don't have that many aerial shots you know only the big production only big Hollywood movies had aerial shots and could afford aerial shots because you had to pay you know the pilots you have to pay you know for the planes you know cuz those things it's a lot of money putting fuel in a freaking helicopter you know it's a lot of money for that you know and now you can just use a drone and how much you're gonna pay for the few Oh in the drawing just charge the battery for like an hour and there you go for free you don't need an you don't need no fuel every time you're flying a drone you don't need any fuel you know just charge the batteries and you're good to go and now these big companies I used to spend hundreds of thousands on these helicopters now they just invested in like you know the high-end drones like you know the DJI inspire years and all these bigger drones all these high-end quality drones whereby they last longer in the air and they got crazy camera 8k cameras on them and all that stuff you know so they've invested in those cameras in those drones and I'm telling you it's it's just it's a game-changer it's a game-changer what you can do now contact what you can do like 20 years ago it's a it's a huge difference you know and I can just imagine what we're gonna be able to do 20 years from now you know we're gonna be looking at the technology that we have now like damn you guys you guys were doing that you know like same way we'll look at back in the days I'm like damn look at the footage from a GoPro Wow like Luca Road there was no Sony like 20 years ago there was no as Sony mirrorless cameras like you know I don't know if there was but are not that of not to the level of a six six thousand you know when that draft is just changed the game you know so it's just like back in the like you could like 20 years ago you can't even imagine the stuff that we have now like Gimbels and you know xenian cranes and stuff like that like you could own like back then I was only like glide cams and all that stuff that you use you you have to like manually you know try and stabilize and stuff like that but now there's all these like technologies just advancing so I'm happy for the film world and Sony and I say Sony and now Apple has iPhone iPhone 11 way it has like three cameras wide-angle and all it like shooting 4k like damn Daniel like phones now shooting 4k actually I heard that those Chinese cameras Chinese phone cameras that was you know Chinese phone companies that had that technology before Apple that I was shooting 4k some like I don't know if it's a Samsung but I'm not into the whole phone you know well I don't do no tech reviews I'm not baking phones as you can tell I got a I still have a Motorola here and this was $100 you know and yeah my wife has iPhone I have Android the only arm Apple stuff that I use is my operating system my own my my desktop and my laptop I used that for editing because this is this is a beast but for just like talking and all that stuff man I'll get a cheap phone as long as I can do that there and I'm I don't need if I needed to edit or do something on the phone then I'll get an apple or something that could do that but I don't do editing and stuff on the phone you know I just like call people and save noise and stuff like that schedule stuff I don't do all the editing on the phone you know but the iPhone 11 I don't know we'll see we'll see yeah so that's the history man so that's that's a little bit of history there we'll buy like drones like 20 years ago you couldn't be able to do what you can do now with drones you know you couldn't be able the technology is just advancing guys so it's a it's a good step for the film world and I'll I really like that at least we're passing so thank you for watching guys and please click the like button guys please please
