Filming ice skaters

#1

Hello,
Today I have an video from the winter which we made using the skywalker 1680mm from hobbyking. We are filming with an old digital camera that we had laying arround. To bad that we did not had the gopro back then, but next year we are going to film them with the gopro. During the winter in Holland there was enough ice for people to go ice skating. This is filmed over an period of about 3 days and we did 5 30 minutes flight. About a week after we had filmed the ice skaters we got an e-mail from two locall news papers asking for an interview. We gave an interview with the first news paper that contacted us. It became a pretty big article and it got front page :) few days after the news paper was released some people actually recognized us when whe were transporting our planes to the flying field (ofcourse in dutch style by bike). If that was not enough we sold some of the footage in which we flew over the ice skaters to a tv station. About one week ago we filmed for our first client. This edit took us along time to make so a rating/comment with some constructive critism would be great. (This video is not in HD because at the the time whe did not had the GoPro yet)
