and from the water
thanks for the comments below chaps
I think the drone thing is a tough one. I agree that the cockpit view keeps you in the driving seat with me. It is our shared first hand experience and in some ways I feel the 8,000 old sailors with me – criticizing the sail trim or the size of my anchor, the mess down below. The drone certainly takes you out of the cockpit. I think that it needs to be done with care. As a cameraman I am always after height, so if I turn up somewhere then I walk up a hill to look down on the place.
Maybe use drone shots just at the beginning or during the history bits. I think that the stuff about Orkney forts would have been enhanced by drone material
