Thinking about aerial filming?

category: Uncategorized

Aerial photography has been speedily developing over the past few years with the increase in new aircraft designs, electronics and 4K camera systems that have become readily accessible to both professionals and hobbyists alike. For a London-based production company such as ourselves, drones have become a must-have tool in helping us provide stunning results for our clients.


What could a drone bring to your film?

Flying camera platforms provide a complete freedom of movement across every axis. Drones have the ability to capture beautiful aerial landscape shots at 400ft, yet also get close to the action, tracking fast moving objects such as speeding race cars down miles of raceway. If you’re in the planning stages of your project, it’s fun and useful to think about how a drone can bring a new perspective to your film. Gone are the days of chartering expensive helicopters for every aerial shot. Drones can be deployed quickly and easily. Aerial filming has the potential to reveal truly spectacular angles and boost the cinematic production value of your project.
