Flew my drone over the new years eve fireworks in Lima, Peru. Looks like the start of the air campaign in Iraq.

I re-did my fireworks over Lima video. Someone on reddit commented that it was missing music so here is what I did:

At around midnight I flew the drone over all the fireworks at an altitude of around 200m. I wanted to fly lower but I could just picture someone getting lucky with a direct bottle rocket hit to the drone so I stayed up high. All the footage was taken in 1080HD. I tried to keep the drone moving to make for more interesting shots. I tried to use multiple camera moves when I could to make it better. For example translating the drone to the right while panning to the left etc.

After I had all the footage I imported all the best parts to iMovie. Then I simply split the clips into a bunch of different parts and randomly rearranged them with a cross fade between each one.
The music is Perpetuum Mobile by Penguin Cafe Orchestra. I also dowloaded the fireworks sound effects from iTunes and added it.

When I uploaded the final video to Youtube it detected the fireworks sound and automatically filed a filed a copyright claim on behalf the company that made them. Now all advertisement revenue shown on the video will go directly to them. Interesting.

Anyway, Let me know what you think and I hope that you like the video. – Jeff

    This is basically any country that doesn’t outlaw fireworks… Some of you
    ought to visit pretty much any country in South America during the
    holidays. It’s a better view from ground level.

    i couldn’t get past the overboard fake audio track. you can hear all those
    fireworks clear as day but not the 4 rotors that are inches from the camera?

    i read you said you lost the revenue from this due to using copyrighted
    audio. you should visit audio jungle and b uy a track for 10 bucks so you
    can make much more than that from the views, then challenge the copyright

    you should get the revenue since it’s the video people like, not the audio.
    that actually detracts from it
