Drones have been used in Hollywood movies since 2012, whether it is acting the part of a character, thrilling us with a great car chase scene or flying just above the main character as they attempt some death-defying feat.
1. CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR (2016)
2. JURASSIC WORLD (2015)
“We decided to shoot Jurassic World primarily with a RED Dragon camera and needed a lens that would cover 6K and be sharp enough throughout the entire frame. We chose to equip our SHOTOVER K1 system with FUJINON’s 19-90mm Cabrio lens, and the lens’ range worked perfectly for our production. We filmed for a few months, primarily in Hawaii and also in New Orleans and shot all of the aerial scenes with the 19-90 Cabrio“.
3. SPECTRE (2015)
James Bond’s escape from a fire was one of the key action scenes in Spectre and it was mainly shot with drones, on a rooftop near Trafalgar Square, in London.
4. CHAPPIE (2015)
The camera on the drone was used as the POV (Point of View) of one of the robot characters.
5. THE EXPENDABLES 3 (2014)
The opening scene was shot using drones. With a moving train, a low-flying helicopter dropping and collecting people from the train, bullets flying, explosions and soldier action, it was not an easy scene to capture on camera.
6. THE WOLF OF WALL STREET (2013)
The bird’s-eye shot begins off-shore and moves in to capture an aerial view of the pool party
7. SKYFALL (2012)
Skyfall had a spectacular opening sequence where James Bond uses a motorbike to chase a terrorist across the rooftop of the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul.
The result is drone cinematography that blends the best of innovative technology with a foundation of tried and tested set practices and safety procedures.
