    Default Flying tandem trike

    This is a short film set to music. I know the colour is a bit washed out, but I just edited with Windows movie maker. Camera on a stick job!

    Tandem trike film

    I'm the passenger in this film (at the front - holding the stick!)

    First video I've watched until the end for a while .

    Next time you make a video, would you be able to video / take picture of your camera setup?

    The camera set up is this:

    A stick with a bullet camera strapped on!

    That's it

    Ah, but a picture paints a thousand words. Would be great if you could show it in practice...

    Ok, I will try to get some footage of it next time I go flying. With it being November that might not be for some time. Maybe I will draw a sketch for you.

    It is a long stick with a bracket at the end. The camera points back at the tip of the pole, but none of the pole is quite in shot. This gives a great opportunity to get loads of angles by holding it, gripping it between your knees, whatever.

    I actually filmed for a bout an hour, but a lot of the footage had a wonky horizon so I binned it, except for the take off (there is only one of those so I kept it!)

    I liked the music. Someone else used this piece on a different video and it seemed to fit well with the shots. It's a bit yeehaaw but the lyrics amuse me.

    Thanks for the encouraging comment.

    I would have liked to get that shot too, but there is a limit to what you can do with one camera.

    I don't really need to say what I think do I? Ok then. Brilliant again. Your vids just keep getting better and better. Innovative angles and ways of filming have put the spark into them.

    Keep at it!

    Thanks,

    that is very encouraging feedback.

    It's amazing what you can do with an old broom handle some screws and a bracket!
