    Shot this just for fun last weekend in Kelseyville, CA, at http://feellikeaprodirt.com/ - awesome two day dirt bike racing class that didn't pay me a dime for this - it's not an ad. I did more dirt biking than droning, but the whole thing was a blast. Music is Barcarolle from 'Les contes d'Hoffmann' - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKwfFEPweHk And then the music after that is an isolated track of synth and piano from Who Are You. Shot on a DJI Phantom 2 with 3-axis gimbal and GoPro Hero 3. Edited in FCPX. Almost no stabilization added in post. Only 2-3 shots were sped up, although a bunch were shot 120fps so they are slowed down.

      So wait what is this place? When someone orders a book, dvd, etc at one of the 150 branches of the NY Public Library or Brooklyn Public Library, it might have to come from another branch. For maximum efficiency, all those books or other items are sent to this big machine with lasers that scan the books and route them to the right branch. The amazing titles were by illustrator http://matthuynh.com/ hire him he is my hero. Music is The Stick by Ted Leo and The Pharmacists: http://amzn.to/VWnGIn In addition to thanking @msh and the @nypl for inviting me to drone around their machine and building in a safe and supervised manner, thanks to @jayzombie, @moneal, and everyone that gives me feedback on these. Shot on a Phantom 2 with 3-axis gimbal and a GoPro Hero3. No stabilization added in post, and only one scene was sped up - the second fly-through over the machine. I just do these for fun and because books and public libraries are awesome.

          Shot with the full cooperation of http://nypl.org and their rad labs team https://twitter.com/nypl_labs. More weird videos at http://boltron.com. Seems like most likely the first drone ever flown inside the NY Public Library. If you haven't been there, go. Everyone in the video was involved in the shoot and lots of safety precautions were taken and no books were harmed in the making of this video. Shot with a DJI Phantom and both a Hero3 Black and an iPhone 5S. Slowed down with Twixtor in After Effects to make up for the glaring lack of a Gimbal. Thanks to https://twitter.com/msh for coming up with the idea, https://twitter.com/riordan for touring us, and https://twitter.com/meikd, https://twitter.com/ryanchris, and https://twitter.com/gab for helping out. So much semi-autonomous quadcopter technology happening right now. Pretty sweet that they are small enough to take into a place like this and open up a new way of capturing images. And this is just the beginning. Music was purchased with rights to distribute from the Vimeo music store https://vimeo.com/musicstore/track/175149/she-is-not-alone-by-lerin-herzer-and-andrew-joslyn

            This was a few seconds of summer stretched out with slow motion. Shot at the Ace in Palm Springs as part of the YxYY nonference http://yesbyyesyes.com on a DJI Phantom drone named Lucy IV with a Hero 3 at 120fps, slowed down with Tixtor in AE CS6, and color corrected with VSCO in Lightroom at the behest of http://instagram.com/nuzz. More stills from Lucy IV here http://instagram.com/boltron or follow http://twitter.com/boltron for the latest.

                Finally got rid of the jello effect with a Hero 3 on a DJI Phantom Drone by applying moon gel pads to every mount on the camera, and using the upgraded Gaupner 9x5 propellors. Was flying using the Fatshark FPV, which is scary as hell but incredibly fun.
