I knew exactly what today’s video was gonna look. I even heard the ‘soundtrack’ inside my head, and I started to shoot some B-roll and establishing scenes.

With that out of the way, I was ready to fly. There was this tiny jetty from which I could fly, but space was limited so I had to go for a really small kite. The wind was interesting too. I’d thought that the river should be sheltered by the surrounding vegetation, but still, there was this unpredictable draft. But what the heck, let’s give it a go!
