The Art of Aerial Cinematography: Techniques and Best Practices

At Helicopter Express, our team of experienced pilots are masters of aerial cinematography. We understand the nuances and techniques required to capture stunning footage from the sky. Here are some of the best practices we follow to ensure exceptional results:

Pre-flight Planning: Before every aerial shoot, we conduct thorough pre-flight planning to determine the best routes, angles, and shot sequences. This preparation ensures that we make the most of your time in the air and capture the footage you need efficiently.

We use state-of-the-art communication systems to ensure everyone is on the same page and can adapt quickly to changing conditions or requirements.

Smooth and stable footage: Our helicopters are equipped with advanced camera mounts and stabilization systems to ensure smooth and stable footage, even in challenging weather conditions. This technology allows us to capture steady, high-quality shots that bring your vision to life.

Why Helicopter Filming is Superior to Drones

While drones are becoming increasingly popular for aerial photography, helicopter filming offers several advantages over them:

Higher payload capacity: Helicopters can carry more advanced camera equipment, such as the Shotover F1 and K, resulting in superior image quality and stability compared to drones.

Greater range and flexibility: Helicopters can cover larger distances and access remote locations that may be challenging for drones. They also offer more flexibility in terms of camera angles and movements.

Experienced crew: Our skilled pilots and camera operators have years of experience in aerial cinematography, ensuring you get the best footage for your project.

Reliable and safe: Helicopters are more reliable and can withstand challenging weather conditions better than drones. They also have a proven track record of safety in the film industry.
