Aerial High-Def Footage of Vancouver

As I mentioned in my last post, Christine Yablonka took a myself, Mark, and Greg flying this morning!  I brought along my high definition camera and recorded a whole bunch of stock footage for random things!  Below, I have edited it into a really entertaining 5 minute highlight reel of Greater Vancouver from the air!

Obviously the footage above isn’t being streamed in high def, but I do have it available so I can watch it all on my TV, or burn it in Blu-Ray soon for people and such!

The camera work was mostly done by myself, but Mark did handle it a fair bit!  The music is from an artist named “Hannah Georgas“, and the title is “All I Need”.  She surprisingly actually hasn’t been “picked up” yet – And she has a CD release party this coming Thursday… check out their myspace for more details!  I’ll be at Jack Johnson so I can’t make it – gah!

For my evening, I went mountain biking with Mark and Greg up Burke mountain!  It was awesome… and it was also my second time ever!  I did pretty well considering.  Later on I also dropped by Spencer‘s backyard band barbque thing which was pretty chill and cool.

    That was actually a lot of fun to watch. You covered a lot of area with the segments you put into the video. I really liked the one shot that lasted for a bit there of downtown with the Stadium and everything near the end. I wish I coulda been there (I know there weren’t anymore seats), but still. Well, one day it’ll all be good again. One day.

    [...] On Saturday I went flying with Christine Y. in her Cessna. What a cool experience to be only 1500ft. above Vancouver, in a little four seater plane. I really enjoyed the whole experience, and I’m glad that Paul brought up his High-Def camera! Here’s a link to the footage! [...]

    Wow cool! I love seeing places and especially aerial footage/photos of Metro Vancouver!

    I take it you took off from Pitt Meadows? (where i live).

    I like being able to see Vancouver from the air, I always wanted to get my pilot’s license but it isn’t the most financial thing for me to do now. :(

    “Could have been better.” What?! Geez, Mark, you’d probably drive an exotic with a supermodel and say “It was alright.” lol.

    Right on guys! Really nice footage! You must have shot that on Thursday because I saw myself running through Gastown naked. Yup, naked Thursday – now in high def! But for real, one of my fave spots is the brilliant red roof at 1:37.

    Keep up the good footage guys!
