Fijian Police Dance in the Streets

Bula!! Come to the parade! Here’s an experience of the world-renowned Fiji Police Marching Band as they boogie down the main street of Savusavu on the island of Vanua Levu.

Third in a series of films about Fiji by master storyteller Gary Yost, this piece follows the films “The Naqaqa Family Farm” and “Beauty of Fiji Can Make You Cry”.

Excellent use of aerials to help tell the story of where this event happened.  A parade in paradise!  Through the use of an RX100 on a small gimbal and the Inspire 1, everyone can now have an experience of the world-renowned Fiji Police Marching Band as they boogie down the main street of Savusavu on the island of Vanua Levu.   Nobody’s ever seen police rock like THIS before.

As you can see from some of the shots, the wind was around 20mph, which was typical over there.  Yost says, “The Inspire is amazing at holding steady in moderate-to-heavy winds.  I just can’t get over how rock solid and reliable it’s been.”
