We were asked to help capture the aerial filming shots together with some ground based filming for the exciting Mini Challenge at Castle Combe circuit for Auto Express.
Our drones can deliver the aerial view you need from the ground up to 400ft and 500 metres either side of the pilot. We operate a two-man crew in the majority of cases; a pilot flying the drone and a professional aerial camera operator controlling the gimbal with a live video downlink to our ground monitors. All our pilots have undergone BNUC-S training and hold a Permit to Fly issued by the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority). Skyvr is also fully insured with £5m of Public Liability Insurance. Setup takes approximately 15 minutes and our 4×4’s ensure that we can film and operate almost anywhere to deliver the aerial pictures you need.
We can provide aerial photographs or ground based professional photography (up to 16 megapixel from the air and 22 megapixels on the ground) or using our remote controlled tracking camera platforms. Our photographers have more than 40 years experience between them and are experts in blending photography with aerial video to deliver stunning results.
Tracking is filmed using our handheld stabilized camera platforms. These can be operated as a one or two-man operation, and as with the drones, our camera operator can control the gimbal remotely. These platforms are cost effective and can be configured extremely quickly. They are also free from the limitations of traditional methods of tracking and we can shoot from virtually anything – boats, vehicles, etc.
