Travel in your backyard

We're in awe of hardworking mum Faye McNeil and her husband Preston who have come up with a novel idea to indulge in some post-lockdown travel with their whanau. The couple are filming their road trip with their three kids (Khan, 8, Arcarius, 6 and Wilde, 1) along SH1 from Wellington to Picton, showcasing family-friendly experiences, budget tips and the best places to eat and stay. They film with a DJI Mavic Air 2 drone, three action cameras mounted in the car, their iPhones on a handheld gimbal, plus an H4 Zoom for recording interviews and in-car audio. When the kids are in bed, Faye and Preston do their post-production work, trying not to work past midnight!
