Aerial Videography is becoming as prevalent if not more so than drone photography in Melbourne. As the saying goes: “A picture captures a thousand words”. What then does a video capture at 25 photos a second? 25 thousand words? What about aerial videography rather than first person perspective video?

It’s undeniable that drone videography captures attention and sparks people’s imagination. What was previously only available to the 1% and hollywood movie creators, can now be captured by almost anyone. Our modern drone technology captures shots you wouldn’t have thought possible a decade ago.

Aerial Safety First

Safety in the skies is one of our top priorities. We operate under Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) regulations to fly drones for commercial use and have full liability insurance coverage. Drone Photography Melbourne adheres strictly to the drone laws of airspace, hover, takeoff and landing, thrust, yaw, pitch, roll, and altitude. Because drones can be controlled remotely and can be flown at varying distances and heights, they make perfect candidates to take on some of the toughest and visually stunning jobs.

Other Services

Our team has years of experience working with diverse clients such as:

Land surveyors: Drones provide better insights from rich, visual datasets at less than the cost of traditional survey methods. Unlike traditional topographic survey data — basically a set of linework — drone survey deliverables include an orthophoto and a contour map, ready for analysis to a digital terrain model. The result is highly accurate and richly visual in detail.

Livestock and wildlife monitoring: With Australia’s vast landmass, relying on humans to notice distressed animals can be difficult and laborious. Our drones can remotely keep surveillance on livestock and wildlife, check for the presence of water, and even monitor the water temperature. In emergencies,we can alert you to any number of factors that will help ease your mind.

Filmmaking and commercial advertising: In 2014, the first use of drones was used to stunning effect for the Sochi Winter Olympics, capturing astounding footage of the skiing and snowboarding events. That same year, the Motion Picture Association began using drone cinematography for aerial footage previously only accessible with helicopters. Television studios are now utilizing the nimble drones for sporting events that cable-suspended cameras cannot reach.

Insurance companies: Insurance adjusters know that being able to quickly and consistently respond to clients is the answer to build brand loyalty. Our aerial drone photography will provide the accurate data needed to close claims faster. Adjusters can decrease drive time and on-site visits while acknowledging client’s questions and concerns with no delay. This is especially vital in times of mass disasters when people are waiting on the status of claims. From a humanitarian standpoint, the ease and pace of drone technology can literally save lives.

Commercial aerial surveillance: By using drones to inspect power lines, towers, tall structures like chimneys and roofs, businesses can save vast amounts of money and reduce liability concerns for workers. Drone videography is a cost-conscious and safety-conscious decision of which companies are increasingly taking advantage, freeing up both man-hours and budgets. This type of asset inspection provides valuable data on some of Australia’s most critical infrastructure. Since these types of assets are usually spread out or very large, it takes a lot of manpower to do manual inspections. This is our drone technology comes in handy by providing detailed intelligence on limited access assets at any scale.

Tourist guides: Prior to the pandemic, the only way to tour some of the world’s great masterpieces was to board a plane and see them in person. This could prove to be cumbersome, expensive, or even dangerous. Limited time and budgets further restricted travel, even without health safety concerns. Now we can use drone videography and cinematography to virtually showcase any number of sites. Cities can create visual guides of their Top 10 Places to visit. Schools and universities can create visual maps and highlight reels for students and their parents. Hotels and resorts can create sweeping panoramic vistas to share in marketing materials, showing potential guests a bird’s eye view of what they will experience upon arrival. National parks can send unobtrusive drones into the brush to observe animals in the wild, or capture ocean creatures in their natural milieu. Any point of interest can be spotlighted with drone technology.

Life events: Drone Videography can capture any memorable day, including weddings, graduations, bachelor and bachelorette parties, pre-wedding festivities, baby reveals, family reunions, engagements, surprise parties, sporting events, birthdays, and more. To create a truly standout video, drone videography will help generate unforgettable footage of the events you will remember for a lifetime. Imagine the joy your loved ones will feel upon being presented a reel of the special day’s highlights.

Concerts, Races, Festivals, and More: Melbourne is Australia’s cultural capital and has even been referred to as the “Live Music Capital of the World.” This presents countless opportunities to promote and record events that might otherwise have limited audiences. For even the most budget-minded manager, drone cinematography will produce outstanding footage to be used in countless after-event aspects. Consider recap videos, 15-second commercials, audition tapes, and highlight reels. Your initial cost can be recouped several times over.

Fundraisers and Non-Profits: Our professional drone operators will help you share the memories of coming together for a special cause. Imagine being able to capture the candid moments of your volunteers and recipients without the distraction of a traditional camera. Our aerial coverage will showcase your mission in a delightfully unexpected way to help reach new donors, supporters and audience. As charitable needs grow and spendable dollars shrink, you need a finely crafted message for your cause to stand out from the crowd.

What is a drone?
A “drone” is an unpiloted aircraft. Also known as “Unmanned Aerial Vehicles” (UAVs), drones can carry out an impressive range of tasks, often entering areas in which humans have trouble gaining access due to varying sizes, spaces, or danger levels. Developed originally for aerospace and military industries, drones are used in such diverse fields as package delivery, weather forecasting, law enforcement operations, and disaster recovery. New uses for drones are emerging daily as their extreme nimbleness and camera capabilities evolve.
