Making some movie magic in Northern California the last few days. Shooting with the X8 and RED Epic.. The footage is unbelievable, probably our best work yet, with of course adding the expertise and professionalism of filming with such a great talented and passionate crew. Really excited to see the film once released!

Had a blast shooting aerial cinematography with pro surfer Eric Geiselman today in San Clemente, can't wait to do it again! Good luck and kill it in Tahiti, see you when you get back!
Behind the scenes of our X8 remote control helicopter flying over cliffs and ocean in Santa Cruz last weekend shooting aerial cinematography VFX plates for Fox's new show Gracepoint starring Anna Gun and David Tennant. One thing we learned is how difficult it can be to match different video plates using uav technology. As most probably know, its already a difficult task to be able to repeat the exact same move at the same speed and altitude.. let alone its already been a month after the shoot in a completely different location with different environmental properties. However, we pulled it off, having reference to photos and an already animated pre-visual provided by the most awesome VP of Broadcast Design ever ;) He made it easy for us to replicate and execute the shot perfectly from our HD monitors on our mobile ground station, that and being very well prepared (Poison Oak was everywhere) and scouting each location thoroughly.
Had a great day at CineGear, catching up with friends and making new ones. Were really excited for what the future holds for the film industry, especially aerial cinematography... Amazing technology that just keeps getting better!
It was blistering hot but we had a great time filming aerial cinematography for Mattel yesterday, can't say what for yet, other than its a new Hot Wheels toy, but we're really looking forward to seeing the commercial! Thank you so much for having us, it was an honor working with an amazing cast and crew!
Wild Rabbit just got more mobile with our ground station! Custom magliner now complete with new off road tires, Honda 2000 gene, 22" HD directors monitor, Paralinx Tomahawk and Array Antenna for the long range HD video downlink.
We're back up in Canada shooting aerial cinematography again for FOX television. Their new show called Gracepoint will be featuring Breaking Bad star Anna Gunn and legendary Dr Who actor David Tennant. The set location was on a beautiful strip of log covered beach near Victoria Island. Like last time we shot in Vancouver, the weather was a little unpredictable with patches of rain clouds. AND like last time, we had to fully water-proof and cover all electronics on the drone... if anyone ever has to do this for their own shoot, remember to always always bring a back up IMU and cables. We've learned even if the slightest bit of moisture seeps in, it can cause everything to shut down. Also a fair warning, the IMU needs to acclimate to the temperature outside for a good 20 minutes before flying, don't try to keep it warm, it will only cause it to fly more drunkly and confused.
Other than those few recommendations and experiences, overall the shoot went amazing. Anna and David were fearless amazing actors, we kept a safe distance of course, but they held their positions with confidence and actually started clapping with excitement once the director yelled, "CUT!"
Thank you Victoria, Canada, we had a great time filming, eating and drinking your amazing craft beer, until next time!
Special thanks to @tombaleshta from Tada Films for making our trip and production run so smoothly, couldn't have made this project happen without you. We're always here for you whenever you need!
Captured amazing aerial cinematography for Nike last night while they projected a live animated soccer field onto the 4th Street Bridge in Downtown Los Angeles. They brought in professional athletes as well as local players from the city for their Nike Soccer #riskeverything campaign. Check out the aerial filming we shot in the video above, we'll post the full commercial once released!
Who needs an entire orchestra when you can just have drones.. this is incredible!!
Had a great time filming a specialized aerial shot for Jeffrey Reddick's new horror short called Good Samaritan. It will be his first film deputing as a director since screen writing the ever so disturbing and fantastically twisted Final Destination films. It was an honor to work with him, you'd never guess in person that he's the one responsible for all my paranoia now in elevators and driving behind semi-trucks full of lumber, he's very humble, sweet and truly an amazing person. Definitely can't wait to see his new film!
