A pulse-quickening sequence in a 2012 James Bond movie, “Skyfall,” is one often-cited example of effective aerial cinematography using UAS.
“The sky is literally the limit in imagining what new angles and views filmmakers will thrill us with next,” Lauren Reamy, director of government affairs for the Motion Picture Association of America.
“Every day, moviemakers are increasingly leveraging the latest technologies to advance their craft.” DragonFly UAS provides exactly that.
“Drone technology offers a safer, more efficient and a more flexible alternative,”
“DragonFly UAS run on electricity, while manned helicopters require thousands of gallons of gasoline. Producers whose budgets don’t allow for manned helicopters, (and those whose do) can save money and broaden their creative possibilities by using drones,” Richard Crudo, president of the American Society of Cinematographers.
Advantages of UAS over manned helicopters for moviemaking include greater safety. Most fatalities of film crew members have involved manned helicopter accidents.
With drones, “you can show up and fly it in real time,” saving time and money and allowing greater creativity.
