During a mock-shoot on Corey Rich’s Still and Motion: Storytelling on Location course, Corey’s team attempted to fly an RC helicopter to get a great overhead view. Unfortunately, this happened:

This caused the crew to get creative to capture an awesome aerial shot. The key? That gimbal, which is a pivoted support that’s key for smooth shots. The gimbal allows the rotation of the camera on a single axis

Check out this video to see how Corey’s crew recuperated and got the shot.
