This is an incredible honour to win this award. I have only been flying a year, and this film was shot in May last year whilst in holiday in Thailand.

It was made with a Phantom 2 and GoPro 3+ You can read all about how I shot it and how I created the look in post in my blog post here.

Since then, I haven’t actually flown that much. I have used drones on “The Wonder List” where I have been legally allowed to. The most I used them was in the premiere episode from last Sunday in Vanuatu using the Inspire 1.


I wasn’t able to be at the awards last night despite just being in New York for the launch of “The Wonder List”, I had to get home earlier this week as I am currently about to jump on a plane to Hamburg for a gig there. Really wish I could have made it, especially to see all the incredible films that were shown, not just the ones that won!

I am trying to get a list of all the winners, but here are the ones I know of. As soon as I know the rest (and am back online in Germany after my flight) I will add!
