Sustainable Forestry - Windblown Timber on the West Coast

We recently spent a day in the bush near Hokitika filming Jon Dronfield from Forever Beech. He wanted to capture the last of the windblown timber from Cyclone Ita to be salvaged.

It was a big day filming as we had to climb up the hill with all of our gear and getting around was really hard because of all the windblown trees and regenerating bush. By using a drone close to ground level we were able to get dynamic shots that gave a sense of the scale and devastation the cyclone left in it's wake. 

Here is a short cut we made for them to use on social media.
