ABOVE BELLINGHAM - 4K Drone Film

ABOVE BELLINGHAM 4K

The city of subdued excitement. Just like Bellingham, this video starts with a slow fuse, but if you stick with both of them, you get epic as your payoff.

Tucked into the far northwest corner of the United States, Bellingham reps its location well. Within arm’s reach of town you’ll meet big peaks, empty beaches, hard-charging mountain bikers, harder-charging skiers, and enough microbreweries to satisfy even the snobbiest of beer snobs. Bellingham’s character is steeped in the wet weather that shapes its outdoor pursuits. Everything from bottomless powder at Mt. Baker to rolling whitewater over Whatcom Falls provides a silver lining to the clouds that characterize the Pacific Northwest.

ABOVE BOULDER - 4K Drone Film

Fly over a Rocky Mountain college town known for its expansive views, hyper-active residents, socks in Chacos, and bikes more expensive than the cars they’re carried on. I had a week near the end of my summer to showcase my hometown from a fresh perspective using my Phantom drone. Early mornings and sweaty hikes provided great light, awesome locations and high stoke. It’s exhilarating to see how a place I know well can look so different from the air.

PAST THE ATMOSPHERE - Success, Failure & Rocket Science

A group of college students from Hawaii have traveled cross-continent to a NASA flight facility in Virginia. After over a year of inter-island communication, planning, design and testing, their experiments are on a rocket. They're trying to launch them into space.

I filmed this project over two weeks during my summer internship in the optics office at Wallops Flight Facility. Most footage shown now belongs to the NASA.

KJELL REDAL SHOWREEL

A smattering of what I like to do with moving pictures. I am FAA-approved to fly drones for commercial use, I use top-end equipment, and I will go to extensive lengths to get the shot then deliver it as an engaging final product. Contact me for a quote.
