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.
