    This short film gives an insight into the operations of Farmland Aviation Ltd., a successful family business based in the Rift Valley in Kenya providing crop spraying services to the East African agricultural community with a fleet of Ayres Thrush aircraft. Filmed both from the ground and the air, using remote helicams, the film shows you close up views of the specialised equipment that is maintained in-house by Farmland Aviation, the various aspects involved in the daily operations of large scale crop spraying and the incredible low level flying skills of the pilots.

          This clip is assembled from unprocessed raw camera files (other than an increase in frame rate at 4:35 for visual effect) and was all filmed by a single operator, i.e. helicopter and camera/gimbal controlled by the same operator. No post-stabilisation has been applied to any of this footage. It was filmed for Base Titanium Ltd., an Australian global mining concern, to document their extensive development of this large area in the southern Shimba Hills district of Kwale, south of Mombasa in Kenya, for the extraction, separation and processing of Rutile and Ilmenite ores, two minerals used in the production of Titanium metals and Oxides, and Zircon. Also shown is their port facility in Kilindini harbour, Mombasa where Base Titanium is constructing a terminal for export of the processed mineral ores. This footage is displayed with the kind consent of Base Titanium Ltd. There is no soundtrack.

            Helicam International filmed these aerial sequences of the Train Attack Spectacle at la Mer de Sable, a Theme Park north of Paris, France. La Mer de Sable translates literally as 'The Sea of Sand'. A desert has been created in the middle of thick forest. The footage seen here has received no post-stabilisation but has been slightly adjusted for the high contrast conditions. Otherwise it is straight from the camera. A lot of fun to film such an event and a nice project to work on.

              Aerial sequences at the American Cemetery and Memorial, situated above Omaha Beach in Normandy, France, where 9,387 American service personnel are buried and 1,557 missing are remembered, following the Allied invasion of Nazi occupied France during World War II. The precisely ordered rows of crosses in the immaculate grounds among the shade of the trees lends a calm but moving atmosphere to this famous memorial to the young soldiers that gave their lives in the name of the Free World, 2499 of them on 6th June 1944 with the D-Day landings on the beaches visible in the distance in the penultimate sequence.

                Testing a Copterworks 3-Axis Camera Mount on a Copterworks AF25B heli with CARVEC flight and mount control. As the raw footage is clearly unusable, by current standards and expectations, post stabilisation has been applied to establish how relevant the 'Servos and Belts dino-tech' is in today's brushless motor Direct Drive gimbal environment. To that end there is also a short comparison with a Zenmuse/GH3, carried by an S800 multi-rotor. Note that the Zenmuse still requires fine adjustment to its balance with the recently installed GH3 conversion. Camera on the Copterworks gimbal is a Panasonic HPX171 P2.

                  Four recent projects brought together in a single reel. No jibs, booms, cranes or dollies were used in any of these sequences. They were all filmed entirely from remote-controlled helicams.

                    Aerial tests and sequence previews for a forthcoming documentary on Farmland Aviation, a private company in Kenya that provides crop spraying services throughout Africa, that will examine day-to-day maintenance of the highly specialised aircraft, the preparation and loading of insecticides or fertiliser and the extraordinary skills and stamina of the pilots who perform this invaluable and singularly dangerous work, under acutely testing conditions in remote locations. The temporary tongue-in-cheek soundtrack is the theme from the 1955 film, The Dam Busters (all rights reserved by the composer Eric Coates). The film commemorates Barnes Wallis, inventor of the 'Bouncing Bomb', and RAF squadron 617 who successfully deployed it. Note that this entire clip is essentially out-of-the-camera footage that has been edited into a viewable sequence. Post Production is limited to adjusting three slightly under-exposed shots but no post-stabilisation has been applied to the raw footage. Filmed with a firmware modified Panasonic GH2 camera at 720p50 with 14mm fixed lens.

                      Found a nice new playground for the first test footage with an S800/WKM/Z15 rig. This sequence is a mixture of two early morning shoots around lake Elmenteita in the Rift Valley of Kenya. The lake and its surroundings are beautiful enough but when photographed it all looks so spectacular and serene with an astounding colour palette. Absolute balance is critical with this Zenmuse camera mount. A few shots in this sequence display an unpleasant jitter in the tilt axis. Following a re-balance of the gimbal these artifacts were eliminated. It is a mixture of 1080i50 and 720p50 footage using both a standard and a Sanity5 hacked GH2. With thanks to Fleetwood Mac and Peter Green for the sublime soundtrack 'Albatross'.
