Drone footage can bring a new
dimension to your video!

High-flying aerials, or hovering a few feet above the ground, Drone footage can bring a new dimension to your video! 

The rapid advance of drone technology, and in particular the use of drones as “camera platforms” has opened up a tremendous number of use-cases and creative shot options, in a budget range that up-until-now has been far out of reach for most videos.  In turn, the market is seeing more-and-more “drone videographers” pop up. 

As such, it’s important to remember that “owning a drone” and being a skilled videographer are not necessarily the same thing.  It’s kind of akin to shooting video on your iPhone and calling yourself a cinematographer.  In other words, there’s a lot more to it than buying and flying a drone!  And let’s not forget about the stringent regulations for drone operation set out by Transport Canada. 

At Media Button we look at your video holistically, never losing sight of the desired look & feel, brand voice and perhaps most importantly the goal for the video.  Every element, every shot weighed against these key measures.  Like traditional land-based shots, drone shots and sequences need to be planned and crafted to support the video. Our qualified drone operators are also filmmakers so they understand this process and its importance to the success of your project.

Some common drone footage.

  • Real estate videos
  • Corporate films
  • Training and eLearning videos
  • Product videos

Together with you we’ll ask and answer questions like:

  • Is drone footage right for this video?
  • What added value proposition does the drone bring to the project?
  • How does the planned drone shot/sequence move the storyline/narrative forward?
  • Will the planned drone footage help deliver on the intended goal of the video? (i.e. will it create more conversions, help get an important point across or better engage the audience?)

When it comes to creating powerful and engaging videos drones can be a fantastically valuable asset in the toolkit, but cool aerial footage simply for “cool’s sake” is not good enough.

At Media Button our qualified drone operators and award-winning videographers will work closely together, and with you, to determine the right equipment for your project. Whether our pro cinema-style Super 35 cameras with prime cine lenses, or our state-of-the-art 4K drone, we have what it takes to bring a whole new level of cool to your video, that actually delivers on your goals.

Tips for Drone Aerial Footage

  • Is drone operation even allowed? There are many Transport Canada restrictions and considerations when it comes to using a drone for commercial aerial videography. Make sure your production company/drone operator is knowledgeable and more importantly compliant.
  • Weather. Filming outdoors in any capacity is effected by weather. This is doubly true for drone operations. Questions to ask: Is the planned shoot fully dependent on the drone component? Is there an alternate date(s) planned in case drone operations are cancelled due to weather?
  • Safety. So you’ve determined that drone operations are allowed at the location and your operator is fully compliant. How will you deal with the safety and control of any bystanders? What about your own people, cast, crew, etc.?
