The use of drones to take stunning video footage and photographs has revolutionised the creative possibilities in the TV, media production and marketing industries.
Filming opportunities and angles which were once limited to big budget productions are now available to all as this new technology evolves at a staggering pace.
Put simply, aerial footage adds a stunning new dimension to any production-whether it’s a news event covering major fires, disasters, or extreme weather related stories such as flooding or snow, sporting events, a corporate film of a new factory opening to a marketing video of a glamorous hotel - we can cover it all.
Our DJI Phantom 4 Pro+ drone uses a gyroscopically controlled gimbal to create ultra smooth cinematic video footage from full 1080 HD up to 4K resolution, in a variety of frame rates.
Importantly, the footage is broadcast standard - being 100mbps bit rate.
Our drone has the versatility to match and in most situations out perform traditional filming methods such as dollys, jibs and helicopters.
The Phantom4 Pro is a more cost effective, faster set up, and has longer flying times than the big octocopters in addition to the fact that as an experienced cameraman I can tick two boxes; one for providing general shooting duties and two as drone operator for a lot less than employing two separate people.
We also hold the new CAA A2 Certificate of Competency which allows us to operate much closer to people than previously allowed before January 1st 2021.
This effectively means we are legally able to offer aerial video and photography services in a much wider selection of locations in city and town centres which weren't previously possible.
"From someone who does it regularly, operating a drone, and at the same time carrying out conventional ground filming is not an easy combination and you do it really well!"
