SkyMotion Video - Tourism Partnership of Niagara - For HLP +Partners - 2012 from SkyMotion Video on Vimeo.

SkyMotion Video was proud to be part of the team behind the 2012 Tourism Partnership of Niagara commercials for the Niagara Falls region - produced by HLP + Partners. This video is NOT the tourism commercial, but instead a collection of some of our favorite shots.

The SkyMotion Video team provided the aerial video services for the shoot - making use of their state of the art remote controlled helicopter drone. Niagara Falls has of course been filmed countless times in the past using full sized helicopters. However, with this remote controlled helicopter, the shoot was not limited by minimum altitude restrictions, and so was able to achieve shots which were unlike any before. Flying only a couple feet above the water, the camera was able to approach the waterfall edge to give the viewer a true sense of the shear scale of the world famous falls.

However, the Niagara region is not limited to just the falls. The surrounding area is full of beautiful landscapes with quaint towns, and world class vineyards. The area is full of life, and the hope is that these dynamic shots give a real sense of the variety of things offered by not only the falls, but by the region as a whole.

When asked how we felt about piloting several thousands of dollars over the edge of the Falls, system pilot Chuck Taylor had this to say: “If it were to fall over the Falls, or into the ocean, or even from 100 feet in the air into a parking lot, the end result is pretty much the same. When it is juxtaposed against one of the most powerful natural structures in the world, it simply gives the illusion of being more dangerous than a typical flight. To be honest, the shots in the Jackson Triggs wine cellar was the most nerve-racking, as clearances were often less than one foot.”

This said however, the team was concerned about mist from the waterfall interfering with the sensitive electronics on the system, and so the flight path was limited to an area between the actual Falls edge. and the large cloud created by the turbulent water below. Hopefully keen viewers will enjoy the ‘shower cap’ seen over top of the central hub in some of the shots. :-)

SkyMotion Video - Newfoundland Canada 2012 from SkyMotion Video on Vimeo.

SkyMotion Video had the absolute privilege to be part of the 2012 crew for the Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism commercial. To be clear, this video is NOT the Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism commercial, but rather a collection of some of our favorite shots from the shoot which made use of SkyMotion Video’s unique remote-contolled heli-cam technology.

The most challenging part of the shoot was definitely the sequence with the two characters in the boat. To accomplish these pre-dawn shots out in open water, the team had to operate from a second boat which followed. A special 8’ x 8’ landing pad was constructed at the back end of the vessel, and from here the team had to take off, fly out to get the shots, and then land - all while moving along the coast-line. Despite the back and forth movement, the tight landing space, and the need to continually match boat speeds, the maneuvers went extremely smoothly, and the results surely speak for themselves.

SkyMotion Video is a Canadian based video company specializing in low altitude aerial cinematography, and photography, using state-of-the-art remote-controlled helicopter (or multicopter drone) technologies. The team provides service locally in Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City, and travels throughout Canada and around the world to offer the very best in aerial video services.

Maiden Light from Craig Muderlak on Vimeo.

All art available at: blownminds.blogspot.com This is the story of one aerial fabric dancer taking her performance into new territory - on the backside of The Maiden, a prominent, overhanging monolith in the Flatirons of Boulder, Colorado. This is also the story of a significant collaboration and the power of combining forces to make something wonderful come to fruition. Without the help of riggers, rock-climbers, photographers, videographers, and a bunch of extra helping hands to help coach the dancer on climbing technique and carry water, food, and gear deep into the Flatirons, Maiden Light would not have been possible. At some level, this collaboration is as central to the story as the performance itself. Thanks and enjoy. Art is all available at blownminds.blogspot.com
