    this is the trailer to a longterm documentary about the "Campus Galli" where people build a cloister city from 1000 year old plans found in the "Stiftsbibliothek St. Gallen/switzerland".
    they build this cloister city with the resources of the middle ages and this will last about 80 years :)

    the trailer is for the first part of the documentary (the first 3 years in building)
    we filmed the aerials with our ALTA and the GH4 in 4k

    Very cool project, and a great example of how a modest production can look very fancy with some well-done aerials. :)

    thank you Steve! :)

    the best thing is: we filmed mostly in light rain... thanks to ALTA

    Very cool work Rolf - looks great! Something wrong with your Alta though - can't understand a word the guy is saying. Maybe a firmware update?

    Rolf, did you have to wrap the radio receivers or any specific areas on the Movi to handle the light rain? I'm dying to try this but a bit apprehensive.

    yes - we taped the receivers and the balancer plugs of each batterie.
    we also used clingfilm (i hope this is the right word for what i mean :) ) and gaffer tape for some other parts.

    we did another flight in more rain a few days ago. we had water on the lens and the footage is mostly unusable but ALTA didn't mind :)

    Thanks Rolf. Exactly what did you have to make water resistant on the Movi?

    Appreciated, m
