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.

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!

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 :)
