DJI Mavic Pro Drone Test Flight Around Annecy, France

DJI Mavic Pro drone test flight, Annecy France

This week I purchased a DJI Mavic Pro drone with the intention of capturing some of the beautiful scenery in and around Annecy, France. I’ll also be in Cannesin May for the Film Festival, so I want to get some footage of that area as well. I took the drone down to the lake in Annecy for an introductory flight.

Traveling from Auckland to London

Bye New Zealand!

So now I’m fairly well settled in London. I traveled here in August 2016… a long process of two flights and a 12 hour stopover in Hong Kong. I’ve been shooting video while I’m here, but been so busy with work that I haven’t had time to put this first video together, plus it’s a long one. Future videos will be posted more frequently, and be shorter!

Nostalgia: TV shows from the 70s and 80s

If you’re a child of the 70s and 80s, like me, then television was probably a huge part of your life. New Zealand wasn’t known for its drama, comedy or sci-fi back then, so we were forced to watch whatever was popular in the US and UK at the time. We only had two channels in 1975 when I was very young – TV3 only came along in 1989.

Everyone’s TV experience as a child was unique, and we all had our favourite shows. There were also shows for adults that, while we didn’t understand or necessarily enjoy them, we had no other viewing choices.

So, here are some shows that hit the nostalgia button for me. I’ve tried to dig up clips that represent the show’s heyday, or particular episodes that were favorites. Where possible I’ve linked to a whole episode, but often it’s just the intro you need 😉
