by Stephan Guarch & Edgar Cohen Aerial photography and videography are nothing new to the production world. But how we achieve those shots certainly has in the last 12 months. Drones have exploded in popularity as a way to get aerial and low altitude footage for videos, for everything from full feature films such as “The Wolf of Wall Street” to the everyday film hobbyist who flies leisurely at the local park. But for anyone who has actually tried to capture this footage there’s quite the learning curve involved when it comes to choosing the right drone and what seems like an infinite amount of accessories and upgrades. This week the team at Experience Above posts a nice overview of the top 3 tips for getting started with drone video production, a handy starters guide.
Packing a drone on your next trip? Whether for work or to satisfy the hobbyist in you, bringing a drone gives you a great chance to capture new and exciting footage when you arrive to your destination. Here are a few things you must know when traveling with a drone! As always, remember to be safe when operating a drone and respect the local laws.
Here’s a HUGE issue that my contemporaries and I see all too often. Productions just know that they “need a drone” and lump all UAV’s into the same category. Now pay attention class because this is important: What you need is a skilled and licensed pilot/company that has the correct camera/drone/team combination for your production.
Like we said in our last ProductionHUB newsletter, the new product announcements just keep on coming. In the intimate (and way too cool) setting of the Neuhous Theater and under a gorgeous Los Angles twilight, DJI unleashed maybe — just maybe — one of the most captivating and interesting new products in recent memory. The Zenmuse X7 with a 35mm sensor and a full set of new carbon fiber lens designed specifically to work with the 35mm sensor. Gotta tell you straight up - they knocked it out of the park. Long known for excellence in the drone world, DJI seems keen on not only keeping up but also surpassing the norm. What was on display wasn’t just new product but some new ways of approaching the production and post-production workflow.

Don’t wait until post-production to solve problems that should be addressed in pre-production. Hasty planning can often result in expensive reshoots. Making sure you have the right gear on-set can save you precious time and money. Of course, you’re going to put a lot of thought into the technical aspects of your production, like which camera, lighting kits, and sound equipment you’ll need. But when you’re planning your movie equipment rental, it’s essential to consider the accessories that will complement such gear. According to many crew and producers whom we’ve worked with over the years, renting the following items often resulted in the smoothest productions.
As a marketing manager, I’m always trying to keep the self-storage operator I work for, STOR-N-LOCK Self Storage, one step ahead of the game. With so many studies showing the power of video marketing and many storage customers wanting to see our storage facilities before coming in and renting, I knew video presented a great opportunity for us. The only problem was we, like most small businesses, have a limited marketing budget so if we wanted to create these videos we had to do them as cheaply as possible. We figured out a way to create a series of videos for our locations for only around $1,000.
One of the fun things about starting off the New Year is thinking about all of the great projects just waiting for you. But what fun is it to embark on a bunch of new projects if you are still using all of that same stuff from last year? Wait! I’m not saying that you are going to throw it all out. Heaven forbid. But what I am advocating is that you can upgrade your production values without breaking the bank. Let’s take a look at some of the exciting new gear for you out there right now.
It’s hard to believe that the holiday season is in full swing, but here we are! There are always so many great gift ideas every year, but this list was really tough.
