Tips For Shooting A Film With Your Drone

By January 1, 2016 January 20th, 2016 Aerial Drone Photography

Aerial drone photography and videography¬†have already began to revolutionize filmmaking. Now, and with better quality, we’re able to achieve jaw-dropping, cinematic scenes that were only previously available to Hollywood budgets. Here at FlyCam UAV, we’ve been working with drones for years to¬†utilize aerial imaging systems to deliver everything from stunning footage for film and television to agricultural and industrial inspections.

If you’re looking to get some high-value production shots with your UAV, we’re here to give you some tips on how to get the shot you’re looking for safely.

  • If this is your first time using aerial drone photography and videography, make sure you’re practicing in an open field far away from houses, people, and cars. Flying UAVs is all about muscle memory so you need to practice flying on a daily basis for at least a few months and in a few different locations before you use it on set.
  • Depending on where you’re going to be flying your UAV, it’s important that you know the rules. This can be found out by a quick Google search. For example, it’s against the law to fly a drone in London without a permit. Remember, always use common sense.
  • For best results, fly your UAV slowly and with long, fluid movements. For example, try getting close to an object and then slowly rising above it.
  • Never, ever fly above any crowds. Firstly, it’s dangerous. Secondly, it’s illegal!
  • Make sure that when you’re flying your UAV, you don’t fly over 400 feet or near any airports.
