Here are Zoltan's comments about his winning video:
This is a great honor; thank you very much for bringing this wonderful news!
This project was something different than what we usually do since the regular real estate client does not want to spend too much money on the videos--at least that's what we have experienced. The idea actually came from our client who is always interested in bringing something extra to a shoot; exotic cars, boats, yachts, or sometimes models. This also means that we do not have to worry about these props. All we do before the shoot is a quick brainstorming over the phone and we get to see the property only on the day of the shoot. The Porsche in the video was the client's car, and the dog was his as well. He just got the puppy and was (and still is) super excited about him and wanted him to be in the video. He had three of his colleagues with him who were calling the puppy from place to place for the takes.
As for our gear, we used a Panasonic GH5 for video; mainly because this is the only small format camera that can do 4K/60fps which was very useful for slowing down the footage in this video. We used a Ronin-S stabilizer and an Edelkrone motorized slider for the takes where we had to cut the windows out for proper window pull. Yes, we cut out the windows one by one when necessary to show the view and for that, we need a motorized slider so the takes are identical. Our drones are Phantom4Pros. We prefer them for the compact size, affordability, and fantastic image quality.
These days, more and more clients are interested in bringing extra elements into the videos but unfortunately, they are not willing to pay more than what they pay for regular videos. We film them anyway because, although the shooting and editing takes much longer, the creative process is exciting and the final product provides great marketing material for our company.
