The use of drones to take stunning photographs and video footage has revolutionised the creative possibilities in TV, media production and marketing. 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.
The DJI Phantom4 Pro drone shoots broadcast quality bit rates of 100mbps allowing footage to incorporate much more detail.
Using a real time live HD video downlink the footage can be viewed from the ground allowing the pilot, camera operator and client full control of filming.
Our drone has the versatility to match and in most situations out perform traditional filming methods such as dollys, jibs and helicopters.
It can fly at any height from a foot off the ground up to 400 feet – below what helicopters are permitted to.
Although very small and weighing only 249g, our DJI Mini 2 packs a powerful punch. Able to shoot video from full HD upto 4K at 100mbps in addition to a 12MP stills camera, the quality is excellent for online promotional and marketing films and the size allows it to be flown in previously inaccessible spaces such as inside factories and warehouses, sports and exhibition centres as well as hotel receptions, meaning ultra smooth tracking and jib type shots are achievable.
The cost savings compared with using a helicopter are also immense.
In 2020 we recently shot aerial footage for two episodes of Channel 5's "This Week on The Farm" produced by Daisybeck Studios
In 2018 we shot the aerial drone footage for 4 episodes of Channel 4's "Coast V Country" series 4, produced by Freeform Productions.
Our aerial work has also formed part of other TV programmes such as The One Show on BBC 1.
