From rocket launches to scenic aerials, here are The Tribune’s best videos of 2018

As technology evolves, so has the way the sanluisobispo.com/Tribune photojournalists tell stories.

From the first-person impact of poor air quality on a resident near Oceano Dunes to scenic aerial views of the Pismo Pier and Shandon’s Chapel Hill, San Luis Obispo County stories range from serious to serene.

Video has allowed us to tell stories in new and compelling ways, and mid-way through the year we added a new point of view via aerial quadcopter videography.

Here are some of our most memorable video stories of the year.
