CASE STUDY: OPERATING A DRONE IN LONDON CITY AIRPORT'S FLIGHT PATH
BERKELEY HOMES ARSENAL RIVERSIDE
Berkeley Homes, one of the largest developers in the UK, required us to produce a cinematic, high end promotional film to advertise the penthouse and development location to both buyers and investors.
One difficulty we faced with this project was filming the outdoor sections with the drone, due to the penthouse being located 500m from London City Airport. We had to liaise with Air Traffic control to schedule our time in the air, as well as acquiring additional licenses to film the night shots.
TECHNIQUES AND HARDWARE
For the interior shots, we used our RED Cinema Camera on a steadycam system, shooting in 5K res at 50fps for slow motion and speed ramping. Exterior shots made us of a DJI Inspire 2 in 4K res at 50fps.
The film was used to promote the penthouse on the Berkeley Group social channels, it was also used in email marketing campaigns targeting investors abroad. A full 4K resolution version is used for large screen display at Berkeley Group showhomes and events.
