    World Film Project Introduction


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     The World Film Project, a collaborative, non-commercial project created in September 2013, shared a video shot by a dozen photographers using cameras mounted to Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in 13 different countries. The group’s goal is to edit together clips of the “most beautiful places on the planet” through the eyes of its participants, said Andy Walters, one of the project’s administrators. The project has brought together more than 1,200 pilots and UAV operators with an interest in aerial photography, “from photographers to taxi drivers, actors to pilots,” he said.

    This video has been put together as an introduction to the Facebook - DJI World Film Project group. The group aims to produce video of some of the most beautiful places on the planet, seen through the eyes of it's members, of which there are 1288 at the moment, spread across the globe. The common factor is the use of small unmanned multi rotor aircraft (UAV) for this purpose. The diversity of skills of the participating members is astounding, from photographers to taxi drivers, actors to pilots. All are contributing short video clips to the project. The equipment used is usually the DJI Phantom Quadcopter and the GoPro3 camera. I am one of the administrators of this group.
