At SkyBiz we are so much more than just aerial videography and we know the full story often has to be told with ground video as well.
Our expertise is producing commercial high quality video's for small to medium sized business that can be used on social media and web sites. The kind of video that tells the world what you do. We can also save videos in a format ready for use on TV commercials in an .MXF format.
We can film great high quality stabilised aerial footage at a fraction of the cost of larger production houses and also have the gear to film up close . Having an aerial drone to take those cinematic shots is just what you need. Guaranteed to stand out from the run of the mill promo videos, aerial shots add a dimension that ground videography alone simply cannot capture and gives the viewer a feeling of quality and big production.
PRE PLANNING AND EXPECTATIONS
Filming outdoors for your promo requires correct and accurate planning, It is important that the client expectation is met within the reasonable limitations of the UAV, understanding that filming outdoors requires special consideration where people are involved. This means getting a signed risk waiver by anyone where the UAV may fly between 30-15m towards that person before the flight takes place. Therefore flight paths need to be pre planned and followed in advance allowing for a minimum buffer of 30m from the general public. This is all part of the pre planning and communication phase with the client.
Once planning has been approved, nothing can show off the visual impact like adding shots in from an aerial video, using special zoom lenses and shooting at 4k we can give the impression that we are actually only filming a few metres from people and property whilst maintaining absolute safety. Or using wider angle lenses gives us that big screen cinematic effect. Its part of what we do.
All filming is done in a special D-log mode allowing for exceptional colour grading giving all kinds of effects for your promo video from colour saturation to a more cinematic feel.
Our Primary Fleet of drones, which include the DJI Inspire 2 with its micro 4/3 sensor and X5 Camera offers a swag of pre-programmed features, lenses and amazing obstacle avoidance technology including 20MP stills. This is the fleet workhorse, able to take great daytime and night-time shots, this camera is truly unbelievable steady and stable in winds up to 15+ Knots
Our amazing DJI Mavic is the agile UAV of the fleet, but small only in size as its ability is far and beyond larger drones on the market. It's the perfect UAV for low flying close to trees and buildings and low level, it is also fitted out with special propeller cages which means we can film safely indoors and get super smooth video. Because of its small downdraft and its fantastic tripod feature we have total control and manipulation of this aerial camera in these environments. Like its big Brother the Inspire 2 its still able to shoot 4K video with 12MP stills and with its inbuilt obstacle collision its built with safety in mind.
As stated above filming in a safe environment requires that all people are 30m away from the UAV whilst in operation or no closer than 15m if they sign a risk awareness disclaimer. With the advent of filming in 4K plus use of zoom lenses we can zoom in close in post production giving the feeling of a great close up with minimal risk. A full safety evaluation will need to be made prior to filming with any UAV once a general overview has been attained by phone. This type of planning depends on good communication with the client or client representative. A signed overview may need to be in place depending on the complexity of the project. Our Strict CASA legal Operations Manual forbids us to fly in any situation where the pilot feels people, property of UAV may be at risk, this may include but not limited to over complex flying procedures, inclement weather, rain, fog or visibility issues on the day. This can be discussed with the client on the day.
Music is the other part of the story. We will ensure that we have great royalty paid sound track to compliment your video.
Finally editing your video is what puts all those magic shots and clips together. As a guide expect a finished promo video to be around
If you prefer depending on client needs we may end up shooting the complete video or supply you just the drone footage. Our expertise is short 2-3 minute social media and website videos, however if you are shooting a complete high end mini movie we are happy to work with other production companies and invoice them or yourself directly.
We can also include in the quote a wide variety of pictures from different aspects which are great for website and social media use.
Generally once an event video has been commissioned it comes with a lifetime licence for the owner to use on multiple sites and websites
