When should I use Aerial Videography?
Over the past few years, drone usage has soared onto the video production scene. So much so that Transport Canada had to introduce a Drone License starting June 1st, 2019. Here at Films First, we have have obtained our Advanced Drone License allowing us to fly in places not possible before. We are now allowed to get closer to people and buildings, even within a built up area such as Toronto. The opportunities for drone video are endless. Besides capturing beautiful landscapes from a distance, you can now even fly indoors to help capture a new angle without the need for a crane or temporary fixture install.
And what about Drone Photography?
Not only do we capture aerial video, but aerial photography too. On many of our shoots, we cover both within the same time frame. Companies often ask us to take photos as well so they can use them for posts on social media or to use for print. Our drones are capable of shooting high resolution RAW photographs that offer amazing quality along with the ability to colour-grade and resize them until the final image suits the needs of the client. Get in touch today to book a drone pilot for your next project.
What drones do we use and what are they capable of?
We currently use the latest drone offerings from the market leader in this area - DJI. We find ourselves upgrading our drones on a yearly basis and in times, even more frequently. The technology in this area is moving fast. Currently our drones shoot stunning imagery in 4K ultra high resolution. The low light capabilities are also improving every year making it possible to get higher quality footage at night. Higher frame rates are now possible helping us create silky smooth slow motion from a unique angle. All of this is paired with industry-leading, three-axis image stabilization, keeping the motion smooth and resulting in shake-free video. When it comes to safety, our drones are capable of withstanding strong winds, and 360 obstacle avoidance helps keep the heart rates of our clients down :)
