A few weeks ago, my son and his business partner, LS Productions shot and edited a promotional video using my truck and trailer as the subject matter.  The promotion however, was for their services and capabilities.  They shot and edited the video in one afternoon which really impressed me, but to these young men, was just another day on the job.  The video uses mostly drone footage, along with some GoPro (mounted on trailer) and tripod mounted video camera.
