How Drones are Taking Films to New Heights

Drones and aerial film making provide productions with new level of angles and perspectives, giving you shots you wouldn’t be able to get any other way. As of late, drones have become the #1 necessity in video production. Storytellers are taking full advantage of this new technology. However, demand on set is growing rapidly because drones offer more nimble film making, while also saving a ton of money. A camera drone with a crew will cost a fraction of the cost, compared to the $15,000+ per day helicopter shoot.

The dynamic ability of drones provides productions with a variety of unique opportunities. Drone photography has become increasingly popular in the film making industry due to their ability to create quick, safe and dynamic shots. The fact of the matter is that drones can go places that a manned aircraft simply can’t, they can capture images that may be too low for a manned helicopter, and too high for a crane. Not to mention the safety hazards that come with a helicopter operation.

When you choose a drone operator for your next film, you save on costs and reduce the chance of accidents occurring. Even though less than 10% of productions are using drone technology, it’s becoming increasingly popular as technology evolves and more filmmakers learn about the benefits.
