A day in the life of a miniature Truckee California, a town that indeed resembles that of a toy community. This video documents a bird’s eye view of teeny, tiny downtown Truckee and surrounding Sierra Nevada mountains, making it a real-life snow globe.
Tiny Truckee is a concept video I put together that combines an old tilt-shift effect with new and upcoming aerial hyperlapses. We came up with this video for the sole purpose of summiting to the New York City Drone Film Festival after many years of struggling with an original idea to submit. However, this turned out to be a harder challenge then we anticipated. First with getting the drone to hover smoothly enough to capture hyper lapses at the higher elevations and second getting the tilt-shift effect to work on the wider and higher angles. Ultimately it took 3 production days, a week of editing and a bunch of CPU heavy masks to make the video work.
