Here are a few “b-roll” videos of Fort McMurray, filmed from a Mavic Mini drone.
These videos were part of a larger project. Only a tiny bit of each video made it into the final production.
I wanted to share these videos because they offer a unique view of Fort McMurray. And they also showcase just how stable the Mavic Mini can be, as a filming platform. I find these videos soothing. I like to play them on a loop in the background sometimes, with the audio turned off There’s no “action” in the videos. Just long steady shots of Fort McMurray.
Be sure to view the videos in full screen (on a large display) to see the detail. They should render in 4K as well, if your computer is capable of displaying that.
