This time of year families with children are enjoying their Spring Break and no doubt have packed among their luggage a new accessory, a drone. Drones have become affordable (some under $100) and along with a Go Pro are among the "must haves" for documenting your hiking, biking, snorkeling and all of the other fun activities we partake in while on vacation.
Rental vacation owners have, on occasion, been amazed to find their vacation home featured as part of an unsolicited video travel log, often by entrepreneurial teens. Yes, kids do awesome things, as in the case of this well-crafted vacation video a property owner shared with an online community of vacation property owners. One can only imagine how astonished the owner was to see their home and location highlighted in this way:
While just about anyone can own a drone, not everyone is able to keep it in their possession (i.e. drone fly-aways or drone crashes). Insert your own funny or not-funny drone story here. It seems most drone enthusiasts lose at least one drone, usually their first.
But aside from operating a drone, there are a lot of other skill sets and considerations required to come together for quality property videos for which we appreciate:
Correct weather conditions
Best lighting conditions
Having a plan for footage
Consideration of cinematography
Post video processing and editing
Having drone video can serve a dual purpose in providing you source content for individual photos you can use to enhance your property and its location from above for your rental listing.
