Filmmaker Philip Bloom’s aerial drone captured this stunning footage of Koh Yao Noi, an island in Thailand. As he explains in his blog, Bloom didn’t originally plan to include children in the video—but the local children were so excited to see him with a drone that they flocked to the places where he was filming. This prompted Philip to add safety equipment on the drone in case it crashed. Enjoy.
Koh Yao Noi, Thailand—Philip Bloom
A little Information about the shoot:
All shot with the GoPro Hero 3+ in 2.7K mode in either wide or medium (mostly wide) in Protune flat 25p
All shots around the local children at the pier were filmed with my second Phantom fitted with prop guards for extra caution.
This was shot on my holiday (yes my passion is also my job!) alongside some stuff for my GH4 review. Koh Yao Noi is one of the least developed islands in Thailand despite being right in the middle of the most touristic bay there. It’s a little haven of real Thailand with just 18km of roads.
Please read the in depth blog post linked at the top if you are interested in knowing more about what it’s like to fly the Phantom 2 or any part of this film. Here is a little bit of tech info anyway!
