16 Jul Gyro Stabilized Gimbal
Some jobs are just more interesting than others and the MoVI M10 gyro stabilized gimbal is usually at the heart of those jobs . We recently contracted with Maverick Films in New York City to work with them on a project for Cargill Food Distribution. This project highlights a very unlikely partnership between Turkey Farms and outdoor artists. Artists Guido Van Helten from Australia, MrDheo from Portugual and Telmo and Miel from the Netherlands who honed their skills using spray paint on outdoor surfaces were brought to paint murals on the side of each one of their barns. Three locations in the U.S. were selected; The Lynn farm in Crawford, TX, The Miller Farm in Harrisonburg, VA, and The Robertson Farm in Loose Creek, MO. Each location was a 4 day process; first day to prep the paint and consult with the owners, the next 3 days to paint the mural and shoot video of the process.
Matt was brought on board as First Camera Assistant and UAV Camera Operator. Richard was brought on board as MoVI Technician and UAV Pilot. Mornings and afternoons around sunset were always the best times for the drone/UAV shots. Mid-morning to afternoon was the best time for all of the ground shots including the handheld shots captured using the MoVI gyro stabilized gimbal. The MoVI M10 is a very versatile tool. It is a 3 axis gyro stabilized gimbal that can be used handheld on the ground or it can be attached to our multirotor drone/UAV to capture rock solid aerial images. We were shooting both ground and aerial with the RED Dragon. It only took about 45 minutes to convert the MoVI from aerial to ground and back to aerial again. The MoVI’s versatility is amazing. It’s delivery is consistent. The perfect tool for this particular project!
