Gear Haul with Michael Vettas

I had this idea to do a brief gear review whilst road-tripping in New Zealand just to give people the idea of what goes into making my drone movies. The original plan was to create a two part, the first one being camera gear specific and the second one regarding outdoor gear. Filming myself would be difficult and the shots would look pretty static so I asked Michael Vettas to collaborate and make things a bit more raw and realistic with the filming, I would film his gear review then he would film mine. Both were done last minute with only 2 hours to spare before sundown, just free-styling.. Best way to do it!
I had met Michael a week or two before in Queenstown, we both happened to be in New Zealand the same time shooting time-lapses and drone shots so it was an ideal time to do a gear collaboration.

The video was filmed back in May 2017. Most of the gear is still current with maybe one or two things sold or replaced.
