Motion Tracking Data to Drone Footage

In the middle of 2015 I was requested to track the metadata of the KPMG LPGA Championship coarse to a series of 1080p HD drone footage. At first I was little apprehensive about how these three short films would turn out with such a fast deadline, but the project’s creative direction was set, the deadline was announced and the project was green lit from the first email.

The pilot was only able to get three holes filmed because of weather and golf course management coordination, but the three we did do turned out great. The final results aired on NBC in portions of their interstitial promo packages.
