Frequently Asked Questions
We appreciate that you may have questions!
Please take a look through our FAQs below and hopefully you will easily find the answer you’re looking for.
Alternatively please contact us with your specific query.
What kind of drone do you use?
We use the industry leading DJI range of 4k drones when shooting aerial footage.
What kind of camera do you use?
Our drones have 4k cameras, whilst our handheld cameras range from 1080p to 4k.
How far and high can your drone fly?
Our drones can physically fly to a range of circa 5km, however, legally in the UK we only fly to the maximum distances as authorised by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
Can you film in built-up areas?
We can film in a variety of areas. As you will likely understand yourself, some areas are fairly straightforward and others far more complicated which require a greater level of planning and clearance from the CAA.
Can you film at night?
Yes we can film at night.
Where do you operate?
We work primarily in Scotland and Northern England. However we do travel further afield.
Will you come and visit the location before the day of filming?
If the project is large, incorporates a number of venues or activities, it may be advantageous for us to visit in advance of filming. We assess each project as it comes.
What happens if the weather is bad on the day of filming?
For aerial video, our drone is robust, however, there will be some days when the weather is against us – both technically and because torrential rain is unlikely to portray any venue in the best possible light. When rain (or thunder, lightning, flooding etc) stops play, we will simply reschedule at a mutually convenient time.
Can anyone appear in my video?
Yes, however, anyone who does appear, must sign a Video Release form to give us written authorisation that they are happy to be in the film. If children under 18 are to be filmed, then a parent or guardian has to sign on their behalf.
We will provide Video Release forms for your ‘models’ to sign.
How long does filming take?
The actual video shoot often doesn’t take too long – remember that a good promotional video is rarely longer than a few minutes duration (if that). The time consuming elements tend to be more around the planning, equipment setup and post shoot editing etc.
