This sequence was shot for dramatic effect. While we’re not going to provide any background on who the main subject is, or why they don’t look like they belong on a towering trestle, the viewing angles are nothing less than stunning. Not only are all of the shots visually appealing, they would be impossible with either a boom system or even a conventional helicopter. The bridge lays in a steep valley unsuitable for manned aircraft.
The range of motion available to the aerial video platform provides almost limitless potential in what are traditionally unavailable places. This particular shoot involved 4 crew, 1 subject and 2 hours time — nothing else can compare.
Here is a link to the web commercial created by Innovate Imageworks that used our footage to create a video that went viral with 60,000 views in the first few weeks.
