Winner of the Second Annual Engineering Drone Video of the Year Award Wants Clients to Feel What They See

So, the story begins on the ski slopes around Boone. Using GoPro cameras, Nelson captured his snowboarding adventures and posted them to social media. He took a keen interest in how the cameras were mounted, and when he saw one attached to a drone, Nelson was hooked. Moving beyond snowboarding, he ventured into aerial shots in and around Boone, situated in the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains. And it was those videos, not so much the snowboarding pieces, that captured the public’s imagination – and caught the eye of the project manager on the dorm demolition.

“He just decided to call me up,” Nelson said. “That phone call started all of it.”
