Was invited to take photos at the Nottingham based Detonate Festival. It was their first festival, and they absolutly smashed it. It was held at the Nottingham Race Course, which at first I was skeptical about how good of a venue it would be. Turned out to be a great idea. Loads of amazing artist (including Andy C, above) and the sun was shining.

2013/14 Helicam Reel from Rob Antill on Vimeo.
Here’s a selection of shots captured over the past year using the DJI Phantom, Zenmuse H3-2D Gimbal and GoPro 3.
It’s been a very good year for me, I’ve been fortunate to have travelled to some pretty amazing places. The heli has been crammed in my rucksack where ever I’ve gone. For something so small, it still blows my mind the kind of shots you can capture with it…
I have ordered the new 3 axis gimbal, so once that’s fitted, the shots should be even smoother. For comparison, check out this first video shot with no electronic gimbal.. https://vimeo.com/63947449
Finally got round to trying out a PanoDrop from the sky. I put a GoPro in 0.5 of a sec timelapse mode, and sent the DJI Phantom up. I had it in GPS mode so once I’d found a position I thought would look good I rotated the heli around slowly to capture a selection of images to make up the 360° panorama. From there I stitched the stereographic image as normal. Hopefully I’ll get round to making a few of these :)
Another amazing time spent at Outlook Festival, Croatia. I took full advantage of the press-pass and the new Canon 5DIII.
Here’s a small selection of photos…
Minute Fourteen – Chipped from Rob Antill on Vimeo.
Here’s a quick process video showing how I put together this image. A friend work’s at a electronics factory here in Nelson, BC, Canada. They had collected a bag of parts that the machines miss-place. Usually these will just get chucked out or recycled. I tipped them out on the table and was fascinated by all the tiny bits (some the size of a grane of sand). It was new to see these separate components before they are soldered to a board.

I recently re-created my logo out of very small electronic components. Really pleased with how it turned out. Video of the process here.

Here’s a trippy one for you. Took two photo’s from slightly different points of view. Shot while in search of natural hot springs, British Columbia, Canada.
Photos I took during the Outlook festival are now up on their Facebook page here. Also Metalheadz have also published the Boat party pics up on their page here.
Super stoked with the response these images have been getting. Next to come is the video edits. Keep locked.
Decided it was time to give the camera gear a little upgrade. I love my Nikon D90, but the video capabilities just didn’t cut it. So after a bit of research and deliberating I took the leap and went for a Canon. I wont go into all the reasons why, but it made sense for me to make the switch.

I’ve known about this place for about 2 years and have been meaning to go check it out ever since. It’s one of the few remaining train tunnels in Nottingham, not filled in or blocked up..
