You’re not going to be able to selfie stick yourself gliding down a mountain but you won’t have to because drones will be doing all the work.
To get this aerial perspective, Cape Productions will offer autonomous drone technology that follows skiers without the need for an operator. That means Cape’s drones automatically fly with you, filming from above as you ski or ride. Customers sign up, meet Cape on the mountain, and get filmed by the drones while riding, then receive a professionally edited video online.
Here’s just a taste of how they can actually make you look like a competent skier.
The service isn’t cheap — the cost for a Cape video package (this included 3 runs with the drone and the final edited video) and it ranges from $100-$200 depending on the resort.
I’ve never skied in my life. I’m toying with the idea of hiring them to record me falling down a mountain on my first time out. If you’d watch something like that, let me know in the comments.
