    Default Epic landscape shots

    I have an idea for a short film, and one of my favorite moments in cinema history has to be the 4th scene in Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers, when the trio is depicted chasing the band of Uruk Hai, in various angles from a distance. I currently own a Sony a33 DSLR camera. Can these or something resembling these shots be recreated with a DSLR?

    Yes and a drone mounted one would make it better.

    Cool! Iíll definitely try to shoot them, my dad discouraged me when he told me Peter Jackson used helicopters, which is well beyond my budget lmao but I never even thought of drones

    Yeah the days of helicopters for filming are coming to an end.

    Drones are the future.. And I suspect in a few years time even standard camera operation will be done remotely from a booth somewhere!

    I do not think so, because remote operation also means: no real overview, no possibilities to fix things, no nuances of body language when commincating with the team.
    The upside, however: no longer freezing your butt off in the cold. :P
