While this may not be the most amazing video ever shot, and these commercial planes don't do ‘fighter' rolls and such, but I was intrigued by the behind-the-scenes – and they appeared to be using Canon Cinema EOS series cameras for at least part of the video recording.
I was thinking about the amount of planning that went into recording this flyover for Airbus… note I used to work for Boeing so this was maybe a little more intriguing than it would be for the average guy or gal.
There were a lot of people involved and not only did the pilots have to do planning, but the entire video crew had a lot to think about (as well as praying for great weather).
Do you plan your shoots out like they did? Do you story board your projects?
