Life-Changer Lottery at Sunshine Beach, Noosa - By Allan MacKenzie of xandervideo.tv, Brisbane, AU. Allan says, "the latest video for architecture shoot for the Endeavour Foundation which is marketed as Life Change Lottery. What makes this unique, it’s the first time I’ve introduced a UAV. While hanging out of helicopters is not new, the UAV really gets into those places where you can’t go with a helicopter to capture those cool angles (you can really get creative with it) Also exciting to see this video has had over 22,000 views to date with the Endeavour draw (lottery for this property) still a few weeks away.
Some background on this prop vid with sequences shot from a UAV is here. Allan says the UAV used is a Mikrokopter Oktokopter UAV. Kudos to the CASA (AU equivalent to the FAA) for being squared-away enough to at least officially approve of commercial use of UAV use for this kind of thing. This kind of thing while possible is still possible if you keep a low profile not officially approved by the FAA in the US as of this writing.
40 Lincoln Street Exeter NH - By Jared Saulnier of Seacoast Real Estate photography. Nice job Jared! This immediately catches my attention because this is the same lady narrating that narrated the video I used to in January to sell a rental property. Interesting how the sound of someones voice can grab your attention so easily.
Nea Makamae Ranch, Haiku, Maui - By Nate Volk. Pete at Maui Real Estate sent me one of his listings that he is marketing with video. Maui seems to be a hot-bed of property video use. Makes sense, there are a lot of great properties and a target-rich environment!
