We recently worked with Brisbane creatives Light & Shade as part of the ongoing 2nd Runway project at Brisbane Airport. Utilising our helicopter mounted Cineflex Elite to capture silky smooth aerials of this huge project. Click on the video to view the video.

Below is a video that we recently shot for the draft masterplan for the future vison of the Gold Coasts Spit. Shot from helicopter on our nose mounted Cineflex Elite & Red Dragon for the talented team at Ai3D

We recently helped shoot the aerial component of this TVC for Mark Toia and Zoom TV. Shea piloted our Inspire 2 and Mark was on the camera. Even though the weather wasn’t ideal, Mark made the finished product look unreal!

Earlier this year we were involved in capturing the Shotover helicopter aerials for a stunning future development in Circular Quay.
We shot on a Shotover F1, with a Sony F55 and Arri-Optimo 18-80mm.
Above is the finished product.

News Corp recently put together this video for ONE Palm Beach on the Gold Coast.

We had the role of shooting both the aerials and level perspective views for this project.

The aerials were shot on our mid-level inspire 1 drone over an afternoon/sunset and the following sunrise/morning. We were very happy with the emotive impact they had on the final piece.

The view perspectives we shot on our large drone with a sony A7R2 professional digital camera. These were shot primarily for print applications and as back plates for renders. But we were also happy with how they were incorporated into the video.

 

 

Shooting in first and last light is really the best way to make a scene epic.

We recently captured an epic sunrise shooting for a development in Palm Beach, Northern NSW.

We traveled from Brisbane to shoot the sunset, stay the night and shoot the sunrise as well. This gave us the opportunity to shoot during the best hours of the day.

We shot the clip below on our Inspire 1 drone, one of our mid-level products. We also offer the Inspire 2 and the Matrice 600 Professional. The Matrice is able to lift pretty much any camera of your choosing – making matching aerial and ground footage a pleasure.

Meet the latest member of the Aerial Advantage team. The DJI Matrice M600 Professional.

This newly released drone has triple-redundant GPS systems, ideal for operating in high ‘electronic noise’ environments. This also allows us to position the camera exactly where it is required and hold more accurately that any pre-existing system on the market.

It also has dual motor signal redundancy and can lose a motor in flight and still land safely.

It is powered by 6 individual flight packs. This allows it to safely land in the event of a catastrophic battery failure.

In short, this drone will allow us to lift the camera of your choice, up to a red or Arri mini and put it where you want it as safely as possible.

It also has a high-definition video downlink with SDI out – ideal for live broadcasts.

We recently were contracted by Hoyne. Property Marketing Specialists, to supply the raw marketing material for their latest project.

SunCentral Maroochydore – estimated to add an $4.4 billion dollars to the Sunshine Coast economy over the life of the project, is destined to be the new Maroochydore CBD.

Being built on the land of The Horton Park Golf Club, the 53 Hectare development was completely cleared by the time we came to shoot the drone backplate renders.

This made achieving low angle photography with the drone very straight forward – we did not have to worry about existing trees or buildings obstructing the drone, or having to be removed from the render back plates.

Operating on a cleared site also allowed us to capture multiple positions at dusk. Usually, because of the 7 – 10 minute window where the light ‘pops’, only one or two positions can be safely be shot.

While the drone team was shooting the low-level aerial photos, we simultaneously shot the helicopter render backplate photography. This resulted in matching light and colour across the set of photos.

The second component that Hoyne required, was high altitude video of the site.  In order to capture the best possible footage, we came to the decision that the GSS 516 Gimbal mounted on a Jet Ranger would be the best option.

This provided ultra-stable footage that could easily be motion tracked, and have 3D models dropped into the footage.

For more examples of the finished renders head to the Hoyne Website where they have completed an overview of the project. We are looking forward to seeing the completed video CGI work and will share once it has been completed.
