New Technology in Today's Market
By Diane Saatchi
The consumer models of the drone, exploding on the market over the last few years, are finally reaching a technological state that allows for an experienced flyer to create smooth panoramas of landscapes and homes.
Before this technology, the only option for filming real estate from above was a helicopter or crane - both very expensive options. Now, however, we can afford these beautiful pieces of moving imagery with drones.
My first experience with this came with a reference to Guillaume Le Berre, a filmmaker from France that was in the Hamptons for a couple of weeks. After seeing Angkor (seen here on the right), a film he made in Vietnam in early 2015, I knew I wanted to see what a Hamptons home would look like filmed in this way.
So, here is what we made:
This custom-built estate atop a gentle slope offers sweeping water views across Mill Pond from practically every room. The beautiful drone images and music offer an inspiring way to see this home.
