Birds Eye Productions is now the only SYNDrones distributor in the USA!

We are proud to announce that we are now the only USA distributor of the amazing SYNDrones frames. These frames are built in Holland and offer professional AP companies the highest quality frame for their demanding shoots. Here are a few key features of these frames:

Vibration Dampened Gimbal Plate

All our frames come equipped with our special 3mm thick vibration dampening camera gimbal plate designed to fit a wide variety of camera gimbals. We also provide separate plates for the DJI Zenmuse Z15 and Zenmuse H3-2D. It comes pre-fitted to the center frame and includes an anti-vibration system used to remove unwanted high frequency shakes and “jello”.

Loads of Space

Space is not an issue on a Syndrones frame. Our large multi-level center plates are large enough to pack all your electronics with extra space left for future installments and upgrades.

GPS Tray

The GPS tray is conveniently situated to mount your compass and GPS module away from any electrical or magnetic interference.

Battery Trays

Large dual battery trays are located on either side of the center plate for perfect balance and CG. Removing the battery placement from the conventional top of center plate frees up more space and provides for battery redundancy.

Simple To Assemble

Our frames are assembled and tested at our factory before being shipping. All that’s required when you receive your new frame is to attach the booms to the center plate and tighten the stainless steel screws.

Super Strong Frame

Diamond Weave extra strong carbon fiber booms for our SYN-6 HL, SYN-X8 and SYN-8 HL. 1.5mm Thickness on the boom hulls, stainless steel screws and strong white G10 boards for the center plate, gimbal plate and motor mounts.

ESPN Superbowl XLIX Promo Shoot and the FreeFly Systems MoVI

Last night we had an awesome time shooting a new Superbowl XLIX promotional video at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale Arizona! The production hired us to use our MoVI camera stabilizer to help them get some great shots of their talent entering the field. We loaded up our MoVI with a bunch of awesome equipment. Here is a quick picture of our setup:

The MoVI was loaded with the following:

– RED EPIC PL Mount
– Super Speed Ultra Primes (18mm, 24mm, 35mm, 50mm)
– Bartech Wireless Follow-Focus
– ARRI 4×5 Matte Box
– Microphone for audio Sync
– RED Touch Screen
– Paralinx Wireless HD Video Link

We powered the EPIC via a V-Mount battery which I wore on my belt. I ran a long, custom built cable to the EPIC to allow us to run the camera for longer periods of time then you would get if you just used the side-handle. I also was powering the MoVI via a large (5,000mAh 4s) lipo battery. We shot for 7 hours and only changed the battery once, and that was during the last 30 minutes of the shoot. I had this battery in a pocket as well to help keep the weight down on the MoVI.

The shoot went really really well. We literally did every shot that evening on the MoVI. This allowed the shoot to move on quicker due to not needing to setup and tear down other camera movement systems.

Here is a quick shot of myself operating the MoVI in the tunnel right before a take. I can’t wait to see the final promo!

Birds Eye Productions Now Offers MoVI Rentals!

BEP has decided to go with the best camera stabilizer currently on the market by purchasing a FreeFly Systems MoVI! We will be offering it for rent (with tech) at a very affordable price! We are able to carry cameras including the RED EPIC. This will allow for gorgeous shots with minimal setup-time. We have tested with lenses up to 85mm at 1.5x crop which effectively makes for 128mm focal length. Even at this focal length the footage looks amazing! Here is a real quick teaser from one of our first shoots.

New Show Reel!

We, at Birds Eye Productions, have been working a lot in the last 7 months. We have had some amazing opportunities to travel around the country and even outside of the country to shoot for all different types of industries. We have taken a small handful of clips from different shoots and compiled this short video.

During these shoots we used a variety of different cameras. We used everything from DSLRs up to the RED EPIC.

 

We are proud to announce our new Show Reel for 2014. Please let us know what you think in the comments section below!
