The new frontier of media production, aerial drone technology has been brought into budget for many productions and now is common place for most professional video companies. We specialise in combining our aerial services with our other video production skills.
Aerial platforms allow us to get an eye in the sky. The usability of the technology and the quality of the footage is now so good that it rivals full scale helicopter platforms which cost tens of thousands and are restricted in their flying conditions.
We are able to bring this technology to our video production capabilities which helps bridge the gap between affordable quality and aspirational hollywood.
We've invested in some pretty heavy technology to help us deliver the quality we need. We have two aerial systems and a ground based stabiliser system.
We use DJI manufactured systems of Inspire 1 and the Phantom for our aerial systems. On the ground we use a Ronin-M lightweight electronic gimbal to stabilise footage to near dolly like perfection. Between them, these systems help us produce content which removes most of the need for expensive cranes, tracking dollies, steady cams, helicopters and a whole host of other cumbersome equipment.
We are able to get the shot in quarter of the time and at the tenth of the price which makes us agile and efficient as well as being competitive in our pricing.
The UK government takes commercial drone flying as a serious risk and to do so legally, you need a licence and permission.
Flying drones is risky business. Even the most advanced systems have flaws because after all, they are just computers with rotors. Therefore the UK government has taken the lead in the world of drone legislation. The CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) has laid out a very strict system of guidelines to help prevent major disasters, protect privacy and ensure the security of our skies in high risk environments.
All commercial drone pilots must hold a BNUC-s licence at the minimum and have a certificate from the CAA giving them permission to fly commercially. Even with these two, there are situations and locations which are still off limits to flying. We spent nearly a year doing our training, writing the operations manual and getting a licence. Therefore if you choose to book with us, you have the confidence in knowing we will always do our upmost to ensure public safety and abide by the laws.
