Harry came to visit and chat to the guys about our Flying for Freedom organisation. I was stuck in the press pen withe the masses but he had a good chat with John, James and Nathan. Nathan and Alan also got to race him round the track in fancy cars.
The team head to Sweden to trial the microlights in the cold and snow. We learnt lots about the microlights and what we need to adapt and about our team as it was the first time we have all been together.
Here is a wee shot of our Pulsar Microlight on Ski’s during testing in Northern Sweden. We are looking for more sponsors and if you want to follow us goto http://www.flyingforfreedom.org or look up British Antarctic Microlight Expedition on Facebook
Here is us starting our training flying from our frozen lake camp in Northern Sweden.
This is a short film I popped together to give a taster of the WEMSI Wilderness emergency medical technician course. I attended the first responder course the week before which was also brilliant.
Climbers, expedition leaders, mountain rescue, doctors and kayakers attended this to better there medical knowledge. The course is run by volunteers who have a passion for wilderness medical work. They include, kayakers, guides, climbers, pilots, doctors, Rescue team members, paramedics, instructors and many more. With this mix of tutors from many backgrounds and a wealth of experience comes this course which is no doubt the top course in its field in the world.
The courses are run Internationally the next one is in feb or march in Ireland.
So had the quadcopter out last week to do a bit of flying for Fiddes Architects and to help the show reel build. Heres a wee clip I made for Eoghain’s website. The music is by a friend John Alexander.
So my quadcopter has been used in its first fictional feature film called Bodkin Ras and shot around Forres. It is a dutch feature and there is a possibility my footage could be the opening shot and the end shot of the film.
I can’t show any of the footage but here is a wee 1 minute shot I did this evening from Aviemore of the snowy cairngorms in the distance and a bit of helicopter music.
