Over the past few weeks, we had a fun opportunity to produce commercial content with our friends at CBR Media. During its shoot with Mercedes Benz of Brooklyn, our aerial company, Simply Visual Productions, was contacted to bring the aerial vision to the next level. We have been working as an aerial specialist team over the past few years with CBR and others. Automotive is one of the main things we shoot and also a favorite.
As one of the top drone companies in the world, DJI’s advertising makes some of its products come off as superior. Case in point: The claims made about the camera of the Mavic Air 2.
Recently, there has been a lot of hype around a new FPV drone from DJI. While this is great news and a wicked new product, who is this drone really for?
If you are familiar with Racing Drones or FPV drones, you may know that these things are fast and agile. Sometimes watching footage from this perspective feels like you are on a crazy roller coaster ride. Yet, all this is becoming a new wave for aerial cinematography.
In the world of FPV drones, learning is one of the most important things you can do. Being able to understand your equipment when building and flying plays a big role in what you are capable of capturing. The drone in this video was built for long-range flight and was being put to an extreme test.
Aerial filming is getting to a point where some of the shots could be mistaken for CGI (computer-generated imagery). Today, with FPV drones, crazy movements can be captured on higher-quality cameras than ever before.
Aerial photography can be awesome to look at. But what does it take to find a place to fly your drone safely to capture the memorable photos or videos that are so popular on social media? I’ll tell you.
This happens to be a funny story from a few years back when the Mavic 2 was first released. We took the drones out to fly but encountered quite a funky situation that resulted in one of the more unique drone recovery missions I’ve witnessed.
At the end of 2020, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino created some fun posts for their “Elf on a Shelf” campaign. With the aid of a few drones, they were able to give their audience a new, unique perspective.
Being an avid drone pilot myself, I always wonder what the current “video surveillance” system would be like if drones were used. If this were a real thing today, how would it work?
Sony has done some crazy things for their Play Station V campaign. Yet, this has to be one of the craziest videos/advertisements of 2020. Here you will see some stunning drone work, architecture, and aerial performance from the beautiful city of Dubai.
Drone photography can always be fun to look at because of the unique perspective it offers. But what if the drone could be used as a paintbrush to make light paintings instead of capturing the image?

Drones may not have the means of recording audio now. The main reason is that even if drones did have a microphone, you’re more than likely going to hear the sound of the props. But… what if that could change?

In September 2016, DJI released the first foldable camera drone. The Mavic Pro was a huge success and has been one of the most popular drones on the market ever since.

In the world of production, large cameras and sensors are king. Paul Nurk is pushing the limits of FPV by piloting large cameras mounted to custom-built aircraft. These custom drones provide a completely new perspective for high-end production.

Due to all that has happened in 2020, the Film Festival will no longer be held in person at NYC this weekend. Instead, NYCDFF and AirVuz decided to push back the date and host the event online!

When it comes to creating content with your drone, getting the color *just* right can really help your videos stand out. Just as presets are available for photography, LUTs can be used to give you great control over the colors when shooting or in post-production.
