‘Humble Courage’ – a story of hope in adversity

Point of the Bluff, near Hammondsport, New York, USA

I always love working with Celestial, & I felt privileged to be asked to travel to the USA with a Celestial team to film a live Muscular Dystrophy Association fundraising drone show over the July 4th Independence Day weekend at Point of the Bluff vineyards. I’m fully qualified to fly drones commercially in the USA, holding a ‘Part 107’ Remote Pilot Certificate, & this was the first time I’d flown DJI’s new Inspire 3 drone for a client. Despite weather concerns the show managed to be held on both Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd July, the Inspire 3’s ProRes RAW 8K low light output is everything I’d hoped it might be, & below is a link to the resulting film, starring the amazing Lily Sander; Lily is a determined 15 year old girl living with Muscular Dystrophy.
