Over the last 5 years their has been a massive explosion in DIY filmmaking tools, tech, and accessories. The rapid adoption of DSLR cameras shooting 1080p at 24fps allowed independent filmmakers to produce the look and feel of cinema on a shoestring budget.
Beyond DSLR, advancements in camera technology has produced amazing micro adventure cameras (such as the now infamous GoPro) that have allowed filmmakers to capture awe inspiring footage that was once reserved for highly specialized production crews.
Some of the most mind-blowing footage I have ever seen has been smooth tracking aerial shots that capture a serial viewpoint, which was traditionally shot from helicopters using complex gyro-stabilized camera mounts and no matter how breath taking the shot was I am sure someone fought really hard to justify the cost.
Now DIY filmmakers are utilizing RC Quadcopters and producing amazing videos with the same shoe-string budgets. I don’t think in the history of filmmaking, amateur filmmakers have ever had a more diverse range of affordable tools at their disposal.
