Recce

Days

Having a drone with you on a recce is not necessarily a must but it always helps. 

 

It allows the director, cinematographer and locations department to get a lay of the land and what will been seen from the air. 

 

From a creative point of view it's also a great opportunity to allow us to dial in a shot to hit the ground running on the shoot day.

We provide a one man crew and a small drone which can shoot both 4K UHD video and RAW still images to be view live or taken back to the production office to review.

 
 

Heavy-Lift

Feature Film

The Inspire 2 drone can fly faster, longer and closer to cast, cars or buildings than a heavy-lift and its built-in safety protocols are second to none.

The Super 35mm sensor on the X7 camera shooting 6K RAW Cinema DNGs will match to Alexa and RED without fail and is able to have mass amounts of VFX work applied without compromise.  It’s the most state-of-the-art light-lift drone option available.

Light-lift

Tethered

Our tethered pro light-lift drone package gives 99% of the benefits of shooting with the Inspire 2 and X7 camera but with the added bonus of being able to stay airborne for several hours at a time.

 

This package is ideal for any sort of live event or something that you can’t afford to miss from the air.  We are able to give a full HD picture feed to an OB or big screen allowing directors to cut back to the drone feed at any time.

  • Much safer for large crowds and inner city work with 2 separate power points and failsafes.

  • Able to stay in the air for hours on end being transmitted live in full HD to the OB or big screen to cut back to at any time.

  • Far more manoeuvrable than a cherry picker or tower camera.

  • 10x cheaper than a blimp or helicopter.

The Tethered Light-Lift package contains the tether system as well as everything in the Light-Lift Feature Film package.
