Allianz

We recently completed an incredible project, after an intense four day shoot with Allianz Global Investors and Spectrecom Films in the UK.

Assisting the Director and DP in capturing all necessary footage on location, we were also responsible to fill all necessary drone aerials since we're experienced and licensed cinematographers and drone pilots by the FAA.

The footage was stunning, and some of the most beautiful cotton farms we have ever visited. Take a look at the project below, and we couldn't be prouder of this collaboration with our friends in the UK.

Cotton Drone

As part of our most recent shoot with Allianz and Spectrecom Films in London, we wanted to share some of our favorite shots we filmed with our Inspire 2 for this commercial shoot.

Take a look at the video below, all filmed with the DJI Inspire 2 and either the 15mm or 42mm Olympus lessens, for some incredibly cinematic results.

The weather was really windy, so you can definitely see some drifting, but these are also not the final shots to be used in the commercial. Stay tuned!

Drones

We are proud to announce that we are now officially licensed by the FAA to fly our drones for commercial usage.

We bring our cinematography and filmmaking experience to aerial images, between capturing stunning HD/4K footage and high-res photography, so that your content will never look the same again!

Aerial imaging is one of the highest return-on-investment features you can add to your videos and content, providing your viewers with an unforgettable perspective on events or locations. We can't stress highly enough how this will add value to your videos, and we are happy to be able to finally bring our high-end cinematic quality to aerial imaging as well.

Flying 4K

We finally had a chance to fly our newly acquired DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter, to capture some great footage over Lake Tahoe, close to the Northstar ski resort. We were there for a few days, and ended up being stuck at the cabin during a snowstorm, but managed to get out for a couple of hours to test the drone as much as possible.

With still pretty high winds, it was incredibly easy to maneuver and capture some stunning footage of the National Forest around us. We're excited to use the drone in future production work, so if you have a need for aerial footage give us a shout.

DJI really did an incredible job with this drone, and the quality of the images is nothing short of amazing.

Make sure you click the settings menu on the video below to watch in 4K. The video footage was unedited, and this is straight out of the Inspire 1.

Inspired Aerials

We love aerial cinematography, and since we acquired our first quadcopter a year ago, we've used it in many projects to provide outstanding quality production values to real estate companies, solar energy projects, documentary footage, and much more. It's been an incredible investment to ride the wave of aerial cinematography and the technology is evolving extremely fast.

And it is with extreme excitement that we announce we recently acquired a new addition to our production gear, the brand new DJI Inspire 1, a professional grade quadcopter that shoots stunning 4K imagery and photos. We just received it today, so the batteries are charging, and we'll be doing the first few test shoots this weekend in Lake Tahoe.

Have you been looking for the best aerial cinematography out there? Look no further. Send us a message and we'll be quickly in touch to provide you the best quality images you've seen.

Stay tuned for some more details soon.

Sunny Anaheim

We are proud to share our most recent video, this time in partnership with one of our favorite clients Borrego Solar, a Bay Area company.

 

The $5.7 million project managed by Anaheim Public Utilities was completed mid-August by Borrego Solar Systems Inc., a leading designer, developer, installer and financier of grid tied solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. The installation covers 300,000 square feet on the rooftop of Exhibit Halls A, B and C. With 7,908 installed solar panels, at the time of it's completion, the installation was the largest city-owned, convention center, roof-mounted system in North America. The system will generate an estimated 3.6 million kilowatt-hours of electricity annually — enough energy to power 600 homes for a year.

Please go to Borrego Solar's website, for more on the project: http://bit.ly/1ur6lA9.

 

We were on location for a couple of days covering the inauguration event, filming and interviewing the people behind this project using our professional gear of Sony, Canon, and BlackMagic Design cameras, lenses, and accessories. All lighting used was by LitePanels and ARRI, and we used a DJI drone for all the aerial shots.

Final editing was done in Final Cut, and color grading in our calibrated suite using DaVinci Resolve.

We recently completed a video using one of our drones to capture stunning footage of the brand new Anaheim Convention Center solar array installation on their rooftop.

This video was used during the inauguration event for the solar array at the Convention Center a few days after.

Aerial footage of the 2.4 MW roof-mounted solar PV system on top of Exhibit Halls A, B and C and the Anaheim Convention Center in Southern California. At time of completion, the project was the largest city-owned, convention center, roof-mounted PV system in North America. The $5.7 million project covered 300,000+ square feet of space and is owned and managed by the Anaheim Public Utilities and was completed in August of 2014. 

Thank you for another great collaboration with Borrego Solar!
