Confuscius once said, "Find a job that makes you happy and you'll never work a day of your life again" and Aviv is one of those people. Aviv is a video storyteller and he has acquired recognition from the movies he has produced with his drones. In this episode we discuss what career choices have lead Aviv to video storytelling, what it takes to run your own company and of course, surfing!
If there is anything to take from the episode, it's the fact that you have to keep on learning, trying, and sometimes fail to find your passion. All experience (good or bad) is worth it.
Aviv Ben Or is the CEO of Hexa Air Cinema. The company he created leverages his expertise in drone filmmaking, editing and storytelling.
A few months ago he gained attention thanks to this brilliant surf movie he produced
Aviv is from Israel, so he shares his story of growing up as a surfer in the Mediterranean. Aviv shares his experience in being his own boss, travelling the world and how all his experiences have brought him to his career today.
Aviv gives his expert advice on the kind of gear you can start with, to produce your first drone movie and he gives us insight on the editing process. The drones mentioned in this episode are DJI Phantom 4 Pro and DJI Inspire 2 that Aviv is using professionally. He mentions 2 other drone models that beginners can start with for great value : DJI Spark and DJI Mavic
