Cinematography : Drones by Daniel Thornton

Daniel Thornton


Does anyone in the Miami area know how to use camera drones?. I really want to incorporate it in my production.

Charles G. Masi

Yes. The FAA recently finalized the rules for incorporating drones into the National Airspace System, making it fairly straightforward for producers to incorporate drone cinematography into their works. Drone cinematography differs from most drone operations in that for cinematography, the aircraft must be flown very precisely and repeatably, often in close proximity to actors and sets. Most drone operators are content to fly high and fast to get dramatic sweeping long shots, but drones are capable of much, much more. Imagine a camera boom 400 feet long that has rock-solid stablility, can be precisely positioned within a foot of where you want it, but doesn't need the boom! We're just launching a drone cinematography service on "the other coast" in Naples, FL. To quote Michael Douglas in Romancing the Stone, "I ain't cheap, but I can be had."
