When you think of Rolls Royce, you typically think of a really nice car. Well, this job took us out to Tucson, AZ and it wasn’t a car we were shooting. We were hired by Rolls Royce to film the new Trent 1000 engine going through some of its testing paces. This engine is now considered the most reliable engine on the new 787 airplanes.
This was a 4 camera video shoot; 2 cameras on the ground covering take-offs and landings, 1 camera in a fixed wing jet flying along the side of the Trent 1000 engine and 1 camera mounted in a Cineflex V-14 on the nose of a Eurocopter AStar 350 B2. We were there for 3 days capturing all the footage we could of this incredible new engine technology.
This one took some coordination so we took Matt as Director of all Photography and aerial cinematograper, Richard Trub as Camera Operator on camera 1, we hired Holly Romero, a local Camera Operator to run ground camera 2, Mark McKenna as Camera Operator 3 in the Citation Jet, Steven Meckler as Still Photograper and Kay Trub as Producer on the project.
We have many years experience with aerial photography and aerial cinematography and use the best gyro-stabilized solutions for aerial filming. Contact us today toll free at 1-800-897-7637 for a free consult on your next project.
