Drone Specialists Know No Limits

News Image
Exclusive permissions for their heavy-lift cinematography drones is not enough for Aerial Motion Pictures (AMP). Their production team have recently added a remote tracking vehicle, complete with stabilised camera gimbal to their fleet.

Drone specialists Aerial Motion Pictures have always been at the forefront of the aerial cinematography industry.

They have trained over 500 operators on their CAA-approved ICARUS UAV course in the last year alone, whilst continuing to provide specialist heavy-lift aerial filming in London, across the UK and internationally.

They are one of few operators in the UK to operate the Freefly ALTA 8, and hold exclusive permissions to fly it in congested areas. The eight-rotor aircraft is capable of lifting up to 18kg, ensuring any camera payload from RED to ALEXA can capture the desired shot.

The team have now brought their skills in camera movement and stabilisation down to earth by investing in a Freefly TERO tracking vehicle.

This stabilised RC car can capture demanding perspectives while reaching speeds up to 25mph, whilst its MoVI M15 gimbal can carry any camera package up to 6.8kg; smooth tracking from low level has never been easier.

Matt Williams, Managing Director at AMP, said: "Aerial Motion Pictures is dedicated to capturing the highest quality footage from perspectives never before possible. We want to bring your vision to life, no matter the challenge."
