Flying above Southend Pier the landmark of Southend-on-Sea. Extending1.34 miles (2.16 km) into the Thames Estuary, it is the longest pleasure pier in the world. Sir John Betjeman once said that “the Pier is Southend, Southend is the Pier”. The pier is also a Grade II listed building.
I had permission from Southend Pier, Southend Borough council and Southend Airport to fly around the Pier. I do not make or gain anything from my videos except experience and the love of flying drones.
My Set Up.
I’m flying a DJI Phantom 2 with Zenmuse, GoPro Hero 4 Black. AVL64 + BlackPearl. I filmed in 4K 30fps with Protunes ON.
Removed the fisheye effect in GoPro Studio, edited and graded with Final Cut Pro.
