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.
