In the Natural Wonders class, submissions featured beautiful scenes from all over the world, together with New Zealand, the US, and Switzerland: UK artist Greg Leighton gained for gorgeous footage in “The Philippines By Drone.”
The Humanitarian class supplied superb views of Hurricane Matthew, whales, a cattle feedlot, and the Ecuadorian earthquake. US-based Nelson Aerial Productions gained for his or her haunting piece “The Aftermath – Hurricane Matthew.”
In Cityscapes/Architecture, fascinating views of Bulgaria, Greece, Pennsylvania and a thought-provoking piece displaying an deserted and overgrown Psych middle competed with successful US-based artist Mark Tammy’s “A New Day in San Francisco.”
Action/Extreme Sports didn’t disappoint. Underwater footage displaying a photographer surrounded by sharks – who would possibly deserve a medal simply because -competed with “Basejumping in Norway,” drones nabbing ocean poachers, and a desert ATV. The successful “Poseidon,” by Air Reel Productions, takes the basic surfer and wave movie to an entire new stage.
The Industrial/Commercial, Real Estate, and Reel classes all supplied beautiful work. Lush agriculture featured in “Beauty & Bounty” by US-based Doug Armknecht, winner within the Industrial/Commercial class and grand winner of the competition. The vibrant colours in Jeff Fidelin’s successful “Acqualina Hotel and Spa, Miami FL” have been a spotlight of a set of gorgeous actual property items; and France’s Athenium Films gained within the “Reel” class for footage that lined a surprising number of settings, from high-rise buildings to the seashore.
As the drone business matures, drone movies are getting higher and higher – and are nicely value watching. You can see the entire finalist’s work on the InterDrone web site, right here.
