Port of Charleston Marketing Video

According to Mark Barna, our liason at the port, after he played this video for the CEO of one of the major shipping lines the gentleman rose and gave a standing ovation.

Among the many logistic challenges of this video, the aerials rank the highest. I had to keep one eye on the Port's incoming ship schedule, specifically the Maersk line, and the other eye on the weather. We had to fly on a clear, preferably windless day, and the shot had to occur in the early morning to meet script objectives. When all of the above aligned, I had to schedule the helicopter from Helicopters of Charleston, and then have a camera mount flown in from Dallas via Delta-DASH in time to have it mounted prior to sunrise.

We got the shot.
