Your camera-equipped drone is only as good as the places you go, which filmmaker John Duncan reminds us of in this second look at his aerial film Wild Scotland. From scouting locations in advance to camping in the wilderness (and hearing strange noises in the night), to hiking in the pitch dark just before dawn, we follow along with Duncan on the series of mini adventures behind every great shot. So whether you're a weekend warrior or a seasoned filmmaker, we recommend that you explore first, and then fire up your drone. You can follow John Duncan on Facebook here.
