AERIAL CINEMATOGRAPHY is centrally located in Sudbury servicing all of Northern and Southern Ontario. Over the years we have gained an extensive working knowledge of Northern Ontario, including remote communities and geographic regions. We have various aerial cinematography DRONE and camera systems to deploy on virtually any sized project from feature films to real estate.

We have also developed a proprietary CABLE CAMERA system for filming in complex locations not suitable for drone and UAV use. Locations include transitions from inside to out, industrial spaces, forested areas and other spaces in close proximity to objects or people. This system provides the acquisition of amazing INDOOR/OUTDOOR aerial cinematography while ensuring the safety of all cast and crew in close proximity. It virtually eliminates collision risk for the drone and camera system and allows a specific shot to be staged over and over again.
Aerial Cinematography Options
There are numerous ways to capture aerial photos and video from the air depending on scope and project budget.
Which method makes the most sense for your application?
Below are some examples for consideration.
Traditional airplanes and/or floatplanes can cover long distances, higher altitudes quickly and cost effectively. This is a good option for accessing remote locations provided there is suitable surface area for take off and landing. It’s easy to capture photos from an airplane, however video content requires larger cameras, stabilization and is often limited due to cabin size, door and window openings.
Helicopters can also cover long distances and can take off and land with greater flexibility however they are the most expensive option due to operational and equipment costs. There are several ways to capture photo/video content from a helicopter ranging from handheld and stabilized camera systems inside the aircraft, and specialized camera systems mounted to the outside of the aircraft.
DRONE / UAV
Recent advances in Drone & UAV technology have created some amazing platforms for capturing aerial photo/video. They can take off and land virtually anywhere with various camera & lens options for virtually any size and scope of project. There are strict rules and regulations that must be followed for safe operation so be sure you are working with a certified, insured drone operator for your project.
In situations that are difficult to fly aircraft or present high risks to individuals and/or crowds, Cable Camera systems can be deployed for stable controllable operations. These systems allow a camera system to travel along a cable that is attached to a fixed object at either end. This cable can travel through an opening, between trees and other objects of be in close proximity to people.
