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.

We’re accustomed to interactive tweets during live TV events and applications that expand on televised content, such as the Game of Thrones app for HBO. What we haven’t seen much of, but certainly will in the near future, is the proliferation of narrative second screen content. This means that while viewers are watching the main screen programming, a secondary device (such as a tablet or smartphone) will provide synchronized content that enhances the viewing experience. Samsung has been a pioneer in developing the applications and infrastructure necessary to make this type of programming a reality. In 2012, the company launched the Samsung Second Screen Storytellers challenge in conjunction with the New York Television Festival. Our team created a demo that won the challenge and we spent the better part of 2013 creating D-TEC, a television pilot that has second screen storytelling in its DNA. As the first team to build a narrative second screen TV series from the ground up, we’re happy to share what we’ve learned.
I have to thank ProductionHUB for the best drone gig I had in 2017. I received a call from Jynx Productions from Yarmouth, Maine on a Tuesday, inquiring about a drone shoot to happen in 2 days. They were having a tough time finding a licensed drone pilot in Florida who also could be the main camera on a DSLR shoot. Luckily they logged onto ProductionHUB and found my profile. Fortunately, I was able to move a day of editing on another project, because I ended up capturing the best footage I have ever shot with my DJI Mavic Pro.
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are taking over the skies. They’re being used for everything from “reality capture” (as detailed for businesses to sheer enjoyment by hobbyists. As regulations become clearer and equipment grows increasingly affordable and user-friendly, the production industry is taking up its fair share of the sky, too. More video crews than ever are certified to fly small UAVs for commercial purposes. For more on what this means for both production crews and clients looking to hire drone services, we talked to Ryan Goble, Senior DP and FAA-certified drone pilot at Running Pony.
