Alexa Mini Aerials on Killjoys Season 2

We had the pleasure to take the Arri Alexa Mini camera to the skies on one of our drones this past January while working on the set of ‘Killjoys‘ Season 2. Filmed north of Toronto, the aerial video was captured at an old quarry location which perfectly…

Once again, we had the pleasure to work with director Luis Gerard, and director of photography Sonnel Velázquez, as well as the production team of Holiday Films for these two new commercials being filmed in the region of Santa Marta, Colombia. The region has so much to offer; the high sea, waterfalls in the mountains, exclusive coastal villas, ridges and much more. Needless to say the filming days were action packed. The drone was certainly put through the paces during filming over the week as we took off from boats, tight sections of dense rainforest jungle, or off cliff ridge edges. The shoot was full of adventures as we hopped from one location to the next, but two beautiful commercials came out of it! So far the first of these two commercial which feature our aerial cinematography has been released. We invite you to check out the first one below.

After coming back from Dubai, SkyMotion Video was proud to be selected again by Nova Film for creating the winter edition of the tourism campaign for Charlevoix in Quebec. As one of the most beautiful regions in the province, Charlevoix has so much to offer in terms of winter activities and Nova Film wasn’t short on ideas: skiers skiing down slopes while admiring the gorgeous view of the St-Lawrence river, sea kayaking in between the ice, snowmobiling over fresh fallen snow, skating over a beautiful frozen lake, ice climbing, snowshoeing and helicopter tours, so much to do and what a film shoot!
 
The winter video campaign will not be out until the next winter season, but we have access to their summer campaign we were part of last summer! Providing most of the drone-based aerial cinematography, we achieved spectacular shots of cyclists along the edge of the St-Lawrence River. The aerials were used to showcase the quaint landscapes of the region, such as a barn surrounded by rolling hills, and an intimate view of the sunrise while our octocopter system coasts only a few feet above the water. Additionally, Nova Film made sure that we covered many of the interesting amenities that Charlevoix has to offer, like the beautiful casino, golf course and the Manoir Richelieu hotel at the edge of the St-Lawrence River.

In March 2014, the SkyMotion Video team prepared themselves for their last location shoot with Clearwater Documentaries, for their three part documentary project: “The Great Human Odyssey” (previously titled “Human: Miracle of a Species”). For this last shoot, Niobe Thompson (producer/director), Gabrielle Nadeau (remote camera operator) and Chuck Taylor (drone pilot / UAV operator) hopped on a flight for Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
 
Because of the very small crew, and the very short window of time (only three filming days), the team had to be quite multitasking. Chuck Taylor, with his experience as a cinematographer provided on-the-ground camera operating with the Sony F55 - filming documentary style interviews, B-roll, and the archaeological site, which was the focus of the segment. Meanwhile, Gabie Nadeau continued to take care of the sound recording. Afterwards of course, the SkyMotion Video team provided some beautiful aerial scenic shots of the archeological site where the story took place, as well as stunning shots of the Arabian Desert. As for extra B-roll, the SkyMotion Video team got crafty using their MOVI in handheld mode for slow motion dolly shots of sand flying off the golden dunes. This production started off in the freezing Siberian Arctic, and so it was a fitting end to finish in the blistering Arabian Desert. Keep your eyes peeled for “The Great Human Odyssey” in 2015!

Coming this Friday to Netflix is the all new feature film by Ricky Gervais, ‘Special Correspondents‘. The film which stars Ricky Gervais, Eric Bana, Vera Farmiga, Kelly Macdonald, Kevin Pollak, Benjamin Bratt, America Ferrera and Raúl Castillo, features drone aerial cinematography by SkyMotion Video.

Synopsis:
"A radio journalist and his technician get in over their heads when they hatch a scheme to fake their own kidnapping during a rebel uprising in South America and hide out in New York instead."
- Internet Movie Database (IMDB)

While the story takes place in New York and Ecuador, SkyMotion Video was tasked with capturing aerial footage in Toronto with the RED Dragon equipped drone to make it look like Gervais and Bana were sailing the seas on their way to Ecuador. Filmed at the shores of Lake Ontario at Scarborough Bluffs in Toronto, the drone was flown from the shoreline to capture the transitional travel shot in a mere morning. One such pass of the boat with Gervais and Bana on board can be seen in the official trailer below at 1:14. Enjoy!

Happy New Year everyone! Well last year we have been pretty terrible at posting news and footage regarding our aerial video services, and it’s not because there was a lack of news. We have actually been very busy. More and more we have been offering our…

BBC Wild life in the Bahamas

Once again the BBC Natural History Unit selected SkyMotion Video as their aerial video drone team to provide them with new interesting dynamic shots of nature.  There were two different upcoming BBC series, which both required on location filming within the Bahamas. Although the locations were similar, each show had it’s own unique set of ‘characters’. While one focused on the local shark population, the other program was working on a sequence relating to the dolphins in the area.
 
Filming wildlife definitely comes with its challenges, and maybe that’s why there is such a rewarding feeling when it all comes together. The need to find the animal every day and then wishing to have the chance to film good behavior, in good weather, with good light, during good tides, in similar water color and visibility, all with a flying moving camera! The other main challenge of course, with filming wild life, is that you can never know how the animals will react to a drone, or any camera for that matters. The type of animal, as well as the age, plays a factor in the way we approach an animal, or if filming in close proximity with an drone system is even a viable option. On the technical side, it also means our team needs to work at sea, taking off and landing on boats of various sizes and making sure everything stays dry! We ended up being incredibly lucky to have had the chance to encounter some very cooperative animals in all the right conditions. We are glad to say that we captured some wonderful topside footage, while the rest of the BBC team captured amazing intimate underwater cinematography.
 
We can’t wait to see the sequence put together, but alas once again we will have to wait until 2015 :)
