Amelia Hilsen - Airline Pilot

Amelia Hilsen: Airline Pilot

This video features an up-and-coming airline pilot Amelia Hilsen, who was born and raised by a family of pilots, near a private airport. It took me about 8 months of scheduling to finally arrange a day to film this video, but it was totally worth the wait.

This was my first time attempting plane-to-plane videography, and it was super fun (albiet challenging). After about 2.5 hours in the air, I experienced some motion sickness and had to put an early end to the filming. Fortunately, I walked away with enough footage to create this video.

Overall, getting the shots of Amelia's plane in the air was one of the most memorable and exhilerating experiences that I've had while making this webseries.

Also, thanks to my good friend Peregrine for shooting the drone footage used in this episode.
