What if a drone had silent props and motors? Here I attempted to join footage from Resica falls with the sound of the falls dubbed in to simulate what that might be like. I think the possibilities are interesting. Video taken with the DJI Spark, sound recorded on an iPhone.

Very cool! When you got close to the falls, I actually felt the water spray on my face What a great idea. At the end you could have added the sound of your bike to complete the effect. Well done.

Nicely flown as always. You did a good job of modulating the volume levels to match the sound and visual perspectives. The Spark in capable hands continues to amaze. Thanks for sharing.

Simply brilliant. Nice improvisation by using the audio recorded with your phone. Your idea of the drone itself recording sound seems a bit futuristic at the moment but who knows what the future has in store for us. Back in the 80s, who would have believed it if someone said that you can get shots like these of a waterfall with a palm sized flying camera?

Really Really nice video, and the sound was as if you were Riding the Back of Sparkie. Super Video, I really enjoyed what you did. Thanks

Nice job!. Not far from my neck of the woods. You’ll have to do Buckhill Falls next.

Very smooth flying, movements, and editing. Excellent job on the sound also. You made it sound like your phone was strapped to the drone.

Yes, who knows what they'll have in the future! Thank you for watching.

Awesome! Very smart idea! How did you change the pitch, volume and stereo positioning of the sound? All in the video editing software? Did you really fly the spark between trees and branches?!?!

Thank you for sharing!

Hi AGallo,

Thanks for watching it. After filming, I walked around along side the river and falls trying to recreate the places the Spark was. (without going into the water of course LOL) So, some of the sound was recorded while I was walking towards or away from the falls. The rest was achieved by adjusting the volume in the editing software. Yes, I flew around branches but the whole day was shot in tripod mode and while getting close to trees and such I was standing right behind the Spark for the best view I could get. Thanks again!

Joe
