Anyone interested “to unintentionally name & shame” using drone videos?
Here’s the initial draft for this easy community project:
Drone starts recording from the Miri By-Pass Bridge (next to Padang Kerbau), follow the Miri river, and make it till the river mouth in town:
We’re looking at a distance of around 17.3 km to cover for this video. Not including the return distance to you.
The video camera angle is preferably 45 deg forward or top-down view, and framed as such that surrounding structures or objects along the river are “unintentionally” identifiable when following the route, like this screen grab from a sample video I found:
Depending on your equipment (e.g. distance, height, flight speed, power sources, etc) will it be possible to produce a clear/non-shaky 5 to 10 minutes footage in 4k for this path without skipping frames & altering timeline during post editing? Something to think about because the idea is to be as raw and real as possible.
If any individual or group can constantly produce a video for the same Miri river route on a monthly basis, the community will have a different venue to verify & measure the condition of Miri river. This reminds of an article by BoredPanda recently :
