Birds Eye Productions 2015 Aerial Show Reel Released!

The 2015 year for Birds Eye Productions was an amazing one. We traveled to some spectacular locations around the world and were able to film some truly unique experiences along the way. 2 of the most fun shoots last year were the 29 days in Africa and the Recoil III shoot in Tacoma Washington. Both of these shoots tested us in new ways by presenting new challenges in how we needed to fly to get the shots requested.

In Mozambique we were asked to follow herds of animals across the floodplains. We also were asked to film full-size aircraft in a variety of different scenarios. This presented us with a very unique challenge mainly to ensure the safety of the pilots who participated in these shots. Before anyone ever took off, we had a very detailed plan of where everyone was going to be and what would happen if anything got out of hand. Luckily there were never any close calls and the footage we got from this turned out spectacular!

We used a variety of cameras and copters to shoot last year. These include the DJI Inspire 1, FreeFly Systems ALTA with MoVI, and our custom built SynDrones X8 with MoVI. The cameras used ranged from the built in X3 from the Inspire 1 to the RED Epic Dragon. We have the ability to film and fly all over the world and can accommodate almost any camera.

This year Birds Eye Productions pilot Josh Lambeth finished his FAA required pilot certificate and is now 100% legal to fly within the United States National Airspace. This is a big deal as most companies within the states do not have this and it is required. If you need aerials on your next project please contact us today. We are able to work with almost every budget and once you see how an aerial shot can help make your project that much better, we believe you will continue to come back to us in the future.

Do you like Skittles and Football? Yeah we do too!

A few weeks ago, Birds Eye Productions got asked to go shoot some aerials for Skittles! They were producing their first ever Superbowl commercial and wanted to make it “Awesomer.” They invited football star Kurt Warner to be the star of the commercial and brought out 9,000lbs of Skittles! It was one of the most fun shoots we have ever been a part of.

Check out the new commercial here!

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!

Make-A-Wish

Last month, Birds Eye was able to be apart of a very special event involving a 7-year-old kid named Alex. He has been battling cancer and has always had a wish to become Robin and help fight crime with Batman. We were able to help document his wish as it became a reality. It was an amazing experience and we wish Alex and his family the best with his battle!

Gary King’s “Unnerved” Premiere Sizzle

Last week, Birds Eye Productions had the pleasure to work with director Gary King on his latest feature film “Unnerved.” We shot for 2 days in the beautiful state of Maine. During this shoot Birds Eye provided a lot of different shots, some being unconventional in the sense that they weren’t really aerials. We don’t want to give away any details but check out this awesome sizzle reel for his new film.

Birds Eye also used our new SteadiFly handheld gimbal stabilizer on multiple shots. Gary and the crew were impressed at how well it worked for the shots they needed!

Owl & Penny: Candy Teeth Music Video

Here is the latest music video we had the privilege of working on. The video was produced by Red Arrow Productions. They asked Birds Eye Productions about getting some aerial shots to push the video to the next level of production value. The location that was chosen was a beautiful place near the mountains east of Phoenix Arizona.

For this shoot we were flying our large heavy-lift copter carrying a Canon 5dMKII.
