DRONE AERIAL CINEMATOGRAPHY FOR NHK TOKYO
Our client NHK Tokyo asked us to shoot drone aerial images for their documentary at Le Puy du Fou. The main difficulty of this shoot was to coordinate with the staff of Puy du Fou, especially on certain show like “The ball of the ghost birds” or more than 300 birds fly together on the final of the show. Nothing is left to chance, our flyover area has been prepared in advance and our movements also so as not to disturb the birds in flight and the show is not changed either because of our drone in flight. For other shows, given that the Puy du Fou is a park that attracts a lot of people, we had to work with long focal length so as not to be above the public.
AERIAL SERVICE DRONE
Our drone aerial shots are spectacular thanks to our camera axes and the lenses used. The Puy du Fou shows are very visual but we had to film from a distance because the stands are full of visitors. In order to fly safely we shot with different focal lengths like the 50mm, when the perimeter allowed us we opted for the 16mm to be closer to what we were filming.
SHOOTING WITH DRONE TO THE PUY DU FOU
We used a DJI Inspire 2 and the camera X7 and its 4 optics to have the choice on focal lengths. Our NHK customer wanted the best possible result, we shoot in 6K – 30fps in DNG cinema so extremely heavy files but incredible picture quality. We also use a 19-inch Atomos Sumo monitor for our client so that they have a good image feedback and an irreproachable visual comfort.
DRONE SERVICE FOR FOREIGN PRODUCTION
Foreign productions and TVs call us regularly for our expertise but also because we know how to take care of all requests for filming authorizations. Recently we worked for the Americans on an Adidas project, the English for the FIFA etc etc … We work with the NHK for 1 year now, they trust us and our work, what differentiates us from the competition is our knowledge of the image and precision in the framing.
