Late in November of 2015, The Circuit of the Americas track in Austin, TX became the focus of our attention with over twenty of the new Cadillac V series cars on the track to show the world what they could do. Untitled Inc brought Scott Zacaroli on as Director and Matt Trub of HDaerial as Aerial Director of Photography to capture some of those spectacular moments of the Cadillac V Series Aerials COTA Austin TX. We used the Cineflex Ultra with the RED Epic Carbon Fiber Dragon camera and the Canon 4K Digital Zoom 30mm – 300mm lens. With the V series cars moving at speeds of up to 150 mph, the Cineflex Ultra was able to provide smooth and rock solid aerial footage at 4K of these cars moving around the track. The Cineflex ULTRA is lighter and more compact than competing systems, making it the superior choice for aircraft especially in fast moving circumstances like the Cadillac V Series Performance Labs at The Circuit of The Americas in Austin, TX.

This project was ultimately edited down into a two and a half minute video promoting the Cadillac V series and The Drive of your Life. Clearly, Cadillac is introducing new technology that will change the way consumers will look at Cadillac when considering their next car purchase. What better way to show case this new automobile technology than with the latest and greatest gyron stabilization technology ….the Cineflex Ultra and the RED Epic Carbon Fiber Dragon with Matt Trub, Aerial Director of Photography behind the controls.

A More Beautiful Barn – Glenn was filmed in Loose Creek, MO. HDaerial, in conjunction with Matthew and Company were asked to film over a three week period three separate paintings of murals on barns throughout the US for Cargill. HDaerial employed their UAV octocopter with the MōVI M10 gyro stabilized gimbal to capture the beautiful images for A More Beautiful Barn – Glenn. The UAV / Drone carried the RED Dragon camera, capturing at 6K with various Ziess CP2 prime lens. They also were able to provide the MōVI M10 stabilized system for ground coverage. “We could change out the system from our aerial rig to a handheld rig in about forty five minutes and reverse that configuration in about one hour. This way the client had the versatility to fly aerials in the morning and use the MōVI during the day for ground shots then re-rig for aerials in the afternoon”, Richard Trub said. “Our custom built UAV octocopter / Drone had no problems with carrying the Dragon and the CP2’s what so ever, the motors never over heated and the MōVI was rock solid”. Richard said.

There is nothing more beautiful and awe inspiring than seeing Sperm whales in their natural habitat. In the Spring of 2014, HDaerial.Com was contracted by Justin Akiyama, Producer for Chiyoda Raft Production of Tokyo, Japan to do aerial filming of Sperm Whales in Dominica Commonwealth. Chiyoda Raft Production faced the task of shooting a documentary to air on NHK Japan of these beautiful creatures interacting with humans swimming alongside them. The production team consisted of a camera crew, an underwater camera operator and our Unmanned Aerial Vehicle UAV crew. All of the aerial footage was captured from HDaerial’s UAV Heavy Lift Octocopter with a MōVI M10 gimbal. The UAV takeoffs and landings were from the deck of a sixty foot catamaran with swells between one and three feet. Over a 3 day period of time, we did approximately 30 lifts. Here is just some of the great footage we acquired with the UAV. While shooting from the deck of a boat made takeoffs and landings a little more interesting, the location allowed us to capture some really spectacular moments of the whales leisurely swimming with their human counterpart. The UAV allowed us capture aerials of this event in a way that a large manned helicopter would not have allowed. A manned helicopter operation would not have allowed the flexibility to wait and find the whales as they surfaced for air. Coordinating with our swimmer and the whales would have also added another element of difficulty. HDaerial’s UAV Heavy Lift Octocopter with a MōVI M10 gimbal was able to provide the necessary flexibility and ease of timing to capture precious moments of beautiful Sperm whales swimming with humans.
