Currently filming for France TV / Des Racines et des Ailes and TSVP Productions. We are currently shooting all the aerial drone images of Metz and Beauvais Cathedral to illustrate a 110-minute film directed by Thibaud Marchand. We use a DJI inspire 2 and a full frame X7 camera for all exteriors with different 16mm, 35 and 50mm focal lengths. For the interiors, the director’s request was to be able to shoot from a low angle, so we deployed our Freefly Alta 8 equipped with the movipro on which we mounted a Panasonic GH4.
We had to respect and show the disproportionate volumes of the interior of the 2 cathedrals which are among the largest in the world, our challenge was to render in image this gigantism of the interior, for that we used the inspiration 2 for the plans face and dive equipped with an ultra wide angle 7.5mm which has the advantage of not distorted. We have also equipped the Panasonic GH4 with a wide angle. The result is really up to our expectations because the images give us the same feeling that we can get when we enter the interior of the Cathedrals, we are blown away by the grandeur of the building.
