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.

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.
