Drone Film Company – Drone Cinematography Company

For our drone film company, being called to work on a movie set is always thrilling. We enjoy coordinating with the rest of the crew to capture just the right aerial images they will need to complete their movie. Not all drone cinematography companies are the same. Our drone cinematography company is staffed with a professional drone cinematographer and camera operator. We have over 20 years of experience shooting ground and aerial video production. We know what it takes to get the shot you are looking for.

Each movie production has its challenges. This one was no different.  Production started with rain from the start and ended with rain. So finding windows at exactly the time of day we needed to capture our aerial footage was our greatest challenge. The easiest part of this drone production, were the wide open expanses of road between Texas and Colorado that needed to be shot.


Professional Drone Cinematographer


As a FAA certified drone cinematography company, our professional drone cinematographer is responsible for making sure that wherever we fly, we are flying at the proper altitude for that air space. We are licensed and fully insured. One of our most important drone videography services is drone safety. Safety protocols are followed from beginning to end of each aerial production.

Drone Video Production

The automotive industry loves to use our drone video production to show off their cars. Our aerial cinematographer has produced stunning aerial images for Land Rover, Mercedes, Cadillac, Jaguar, Toyota, and Porsche. Everyone wants to see how the cars will perform and what better way to see them, than from the air with aerial drone cinematography. Our drones will move low and fast along with the cars. Our drone operator is experienced and is FAA licensed. Every drone production is planned and cleared through proper procedures ensuring each flight is safe and successful.

Live Events Captured With Drone Production

Drone aerial cinematography can also be used to capture live events like a competition and fund raiser for our armed forces and law enforcement. Aerial filming of people learning security driving and fire arms techniques was our assignment.  Our aerial footage was handed to an editor to create short videos of the activities to show on large screens all throughout the day.  Once everyone had learned the security driving techniques and had a chance to do some practice runs, the real competition began. The team with the fastest score on the track won. This was another opportunity for our drone production team to fly fast and low to capture the car action on the race track and firing range.

Manned Aerial Production


Manned aerial production is frequently used for corporate video productions. Aerial camera systems are rapidly changing to meet specific aerial filming needs. The Cineflex Elite platform and Alexa camera were used for this particular project. Much of the aerial footage in this video was captured 60 miles offshore from the Port of Houston in the Gulf of Mexico. Nothing is more dramatic than a beautiful freighter at work in the middle of the ocean. Aerial images were flawlessly captured of men at work on the decks, a beautiful sunset with level horizon, aerials of the Port of Houston and downtown Houston. All of this corporate aerial footage was captured in one day. To accomplish this, aerial coordination with the ship’s crew, the ground crew, the client and the FAA were critical.


Aerial Cinematograpy Companies


As aerial cinematography companies go, HDaerial excels at aerial coordination. Solid aerial coordination will make the difference between a really successful aerial project and a mediocre aerial project. We have identified qualified aerial film pilots and helicopters that can handle the proper gyro stabilized camera system for the job at hand regardless of where in the world the aerial job takes place. Our aerial cinematographer coordinates with the production team, all ground crews to be featured in the shot, and those that are not such as refueling crews and staging crews. We also make sure all permits and certificates of insurance are properly in place before take-off.

Aerial Cinematography

Aerial Cinematography has taken on a new meaning with the introduction of drone filming. At one time, only large budgets could entertain the idea of incorporating aerial images into their projects.  As a result, aerial video was the exception not the norm.  However, with all of the advances made in the last few years with drone technology, aerial cinematography is now more affordable and accessible to most video production projects.


There are several things to consider when you are looking for the right aerial production team. The first step is to check out samples of their work. Go to their website. See if they have experience capturing the type of aerial images you need for your project. Second, make sure their pilot is properly licensed and certified by the FAA. If they are, this will assure a secure and safe aerial production environment. Third, make sure they are insured. Capturing drone aerials is relatively safe but in the event of an accident you want to make sure that everyone is adequately covered.

Drone Filming


Capturing beautiful aerial images has become more cost efficient and less intrusive. We service the entire continental United States.  The beautiful aerial cinematography of the Marriot Ranch Bed and Breakfast located in Hume, VA were captured using the Inspire 2 and the Zenmuse X5S camera at 4k. The expert piloting and camera work along with the Inspire 2 allowed us to highlight the beauty of the majestic Blue Ridge and show the relaxed atmosphere of the facility. We also have the Inspire 2 with the X7S available for anyone interested in capturing aerial images at 6K or still images at 24 MP.


Our offices are located in Richmond, Virginia and Austin, Texas.  Our pilot is FAA certified and our drones are fully insured. Contact us for a cost estimate for your next aerial project.

Aerial Videography


When the phone rings and people want to talk to us about using aerial videography to capture really dynamic aerial footage for their project, we never know exactly what will be coming next.  Aerial filming always draws the really creative producers who think outside the box.  This time we would be capturing powerful aerial images of skydivers as they jump from an airplane in Central Texas.  You may think, “Okay, what’s so hard about aerial video production?” but there’s more.  We needed to capture air to air cinematography of them free falling into and out of formation.  The next step was the opening of the new 50 foot Dell Technologies logo banner that was to land precisely in the designated open field among the Dell Round Rock, TX campus buildings.  Then there were the skydivers in winged suits that were going to just skim over the top of the Dell Technologies banner as it is floating down.  There is always much more to aerial videography than meets the eye.  A tremendous amount of aerial coordination between the pilot of the airplane and the helicopter had to take place to make sure the timing was perfect but to also make sure the skydivers were always safe.  We used the Cineflex Elite with the Alexa Camera mounted to the nose of a Bell Jet Ranger.  Once again, our experienced aerial camera operator and film pilot were able to capture spectacular aerial video production while our companion company, Matthew and Company was on the ground capturing spectacular images of this aerial acrobat show from the ground. The spectacular opening production for the introduction of Dell Technologies will show you how the dynamic aerial videography professionals at HDaerial can deliver.

Aerial Cinema using Gyro Stabilized Systems

Aerial cinema adds production value and an element of excitement to most video production projects. We use the gyro stabilized systems that best suit your project. After consulting with you, we analyze which helicopter camera mount will produce the best aerial videos to meet your video production needs. Introducing new model cars and showing off their capabilities can be a challenge.  Aerial cinematography on a closed set is a way to let your product shine.  The Circuit of the Americas track in Austin, TX became the focus of our attention with over twenty new Cadillac V series cars on the track to show the world what they could do. We used the Cineflex Ultra with the RED Epic Carbon Fiber Dragon camera and the Canon 4K Digital Zoom 30mm – 300mm lens to capture some of these spectacular aerial images. With the cars moving at speeds of up to 150 mph, the gyro stabilized systems we use were able to provide smooth and rock solid aerial footage at 4K of these cars moving around the track.


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. There was no better way to show case this new product than with a rock solid aerial cinema.


Aerial Videos

Creating aerial cinema on a closed set produces great aerial images in a safe environment. We provide aerial videos at Circuit of the Americas. Whether you need helicopters, gyro stabilized camera systems, RF Downlinks for broadcast, aerial camera operators, technicians or ground crew, we can provide many of these services locally, saving you time and money. HDaerial is the one call for all of your aerial production needs.

Our UAV drone carries the Canon 5D Mark III to capture these breath taking aerial images.   Aerial images allow potential buyers to see the whole property at different angles by just looking at pictures.

Aerial Production Company


Our aerial production company is one way to capture the graceful beauty of a sailing yacht. As the De Lage Landen yacht sailed into New York, we used an aerial camera helicopter system to capture majestic images of sails unfurled with New York City in the background.  This yacht spent nearly a year traveling around the world.  Aerial footage was shot using the Cineflex V14. The gyro stabilized camera system was mounted on an Astar 355 Twin Star.


Not only did the client want to capture the yacht under sail but we needed to capture the crew on deck working the sails. This could only be accomplished with aerial film solutions. Pre-production planning and logistics needed to be coordinated. As aerial cinematography companies go, we excel at aerial coordination. Solid coordination will make the difference between a really successful aerial project and a mediocre aerial project. We have identified qualified aerial film pilots and aerial filming helicopter that can handle the proper gyro stabilized camera system for the job at hand regardless of where in the world the job takes place. We also make sure all permits and certificates of insurance are properly in place before takeoff.
