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.
