Ah, a week at the beach. First family vacation with everyone in a long time. Perfection in every way. Of course, I still needed a project or two to do.

So, here it is, your moment of zen:

B(each)-Roll by Jon Roemer. Also, on YouTube.

This was filmed in Emerald Isle, a town on the Outer Banks in North Carolina. I used a DJI Phantom 4 Pro with the settings I recommend. Profile: None and Custom Settings: -2 -2 -1. The drone was set to 2.7K mode, 23.98 fps, 1/50 second shutter, and I used Polar Pro ND filters to keep my shutter at 1/50 (ND 8, ND 16, and ND 32). I also varied the aperture between f/2.8 and f/5.6, as needed.

While some of the clips feel like they are in slow-motion, they are not. Everything is in real time.

Music: Rima Banya Theme by David Hilowitz.


  1. Great work showcasing our little piece of paradise here on the coast. Loved it.

    • Thanks Jeff! Fun to be back in Emerald Isle after many years. We used to come down in the summers back when I was in middle school and high school.
