Oktokopter, Oslo, Norway.
The final video release for the Hive Swimwear 2012/2013 Collection will be January 1st in 2012.
We have some other small projects from Fraser Island to release between now and then including a 3D segment.
Fraser Island is a photographer's dream. There is an abundance of natural beauty on Fraser which is the world's largest sand island.
White sand, fresh water lakes, rainforest, sandy beaches and rugged headlands.
We used a variety of multi-rotors including a modified Droidworx Hex, Cinestar6, SkyJib a ducted XL quad for close 3D shots (yet to come) and an Aerobot machine which will be released shortly.

In March 2012 we planned to make aerial shots for a TV documentary of the lost Kingdom of Arakan in todays Myanmar near the Bay of Bengal. Mrauk-U, a fine last royal capital of Rakhine has scenic beauty and historical remains which are inextricable and remarkable. Innumerable pagodas belonging to all ages can be found throughout the city. It is no wonder that Mrauk-U is popularly known as the 'Land of Pagodas' and Europeans remarked Mrauk-U as 'The Golden City'.
To realize the aerial images we used a so called Mikrokopter, a tiny multirotor flying machine which is controlled by a wireless remote control. The camera is also controlled by wireless transmission of the videosignal to a high-resolution video goggles which gives the pilot realtime control about the recorded image.
All the scenes has been NOT stabilized in post production, NOT slowed down, only some color correction was made.
To realize a long distance flight of 13 minutes, a high capacity lithium polymer battery from stefansliposhop.de/liposhop/ was used.
The aerial material will be used in a TV-documentary about the "Lost Kingdom of Arakan".
Download the full HD version. The original less compressed ProRes version shows even more details.
