this short video was made on top of Evoramonte Castle in Portugal with a drone with a camera mounted on it
I want to thank camera man Rui Fernandes for operating the drone and camera so skillfully. I also want to thank photographer and producer Luis Branco for setting this up for me. Thank you to Luis Pintasilgo for his wonderful assistance too. This was an experiment and a big surprise that I got to “inhabit” the castle at Evoramonte and then on top of it have a drone take images! Much thanks goes to Ludger and Carolien of the Obras Foundation Portugal who allowed me this wonderful opportunity. I am not sure if I will use the video or the stills from the drone in my final project (a little Game of Throney) but they give a fantastic sense of the space. Check out the shadow of the castle on the right. Luis Branco took 550 still images of me at the castle and castle grounds with his Nikon 800 – that I am sorting through. Fantastic images – but I need to edit etc.. Only 2 more weeks in Portugal and it’s raining cats and dogs now!
