We’ve been very busy and lucky the last few months here at Kerbute HQ. One of our recent and on-going collaborations, this time with Aerial Filming Ireland, has borne fruit; and wow is it ever sweet!
Aerial Filming Ireland is one of Ireland’s premier drone helicopter / UAV businesses run by Steve and Susan of GoodLooking Films. We’ve been helping them out on most of their recent shoots, operating the Movi gimbal attached to the Cinestar 8 Octocopter, and helping with some of the on-site logistics. Drone flying is a tricky business we’ve learned, but it can also be a rewarding and – pardon the pun – uplifting one.
To date we’ve helped out on shoots for The National Lottery (the one where the guy goes mountain climbing to find the Guru?) and the OPW (Newgrange, Tara Hill and St. Stephen’s Green so far) as well as some other exciting shoots. We’ve flown the Canon C300, the Black Magic Pocket, and our own 4K wonder; the Panasonic GH4.
Our most recent shoot was for CBS 60 Minutes Sports who were working on a piece in Kinsale, Cork. Wow, CBS 60 minutes eh? Yeah. It was great.
Susan from Aerial Filming has written a blog piece about the whole shoot, in which she speaks about what went on for the day, and also the tribulations of drone flying. It’s well worth a read for anyone out there interested in hiring a drone for a shoot, and not sure what to expect.
