Drone Video Gets Local Press

Jason Allard with Uncommon Sense Media posted the nearly two-minute drone video of Belton Court Estate in Barrington, RI. This is the ninth in his “Uncommon’s Abandoned” series, which traces the history of historical locations throughout New England. The series documents sites which are examples of urban decay. Many are former mansions which are slowly being reclaimed by nature. Aerial video is an ideal way to show these large estates.

He has a very interesting collection of short drone videos. Another of his historical location videos is of a drive-in theater that is also being overgrown. On his site he quotes Spike Lee “I just want to make whatever is exciting.”

I discovered this story in a local Rhode Island online magazine called GoLocalProv. The story included the YouTube video above, a short interview with the producer Jason Allard and a very nice blurb about his company. It looks to me very much like a press release. And if so, it is a very smart move. I don’t know if the article brought him any work, but articles like this are bound to make the phone ring.
