We’ve certainly felt a post-lockdown video production bounce with Wedge-Tail Pictures in Sydney. It was a busy September for us as drone operators and live-streamers in particular.
Aerial photography requests have ranged from work for logistics experts XL Express to real estate drone work, documentary feature drone filming, and even church groups wanting a new angle on their properties.
INDOOR DRONE FILMING
Filming for XL Express tested our professional drone video skills with the limited space for manoeuvre that indoor drone filming requires.
A drone and video shoot for the National Portrait Gallery in the Snowy Mountains was a highlight as we documented a high-profile portrait in the making - the sub-zero temperatures, 3:30 call time and overnight snow dump making drone operation a fun challenge. Can’t wait to post that in the documentary section in the next month or two.
TVCs AND SYDNEY LIVE-STREAMING
After that, it was off to the bushfire hit South Coast of NSW to work with an NGO on a mission to tell the stories of bushfire survivors - 4k video production and drone operation were in full swing as we worked on a TV commercial for the group.
US TV network CNN hired Wedge-Tail to produce video for their documentary short into the Qanon movement here in Sydney, while we helped a Sydney high school reach hundreds of parents and family members via a graduation live-stream; unable to host a large gathering due to Covid 19 measures, we used the latest Blackmagic technology and a simple YouTube stream to take the special moment into people’s homes (photo below). The feedback was pretty good too: ‘The finished product was outstanding!’ Thanks to Kingsgrove High for having us. 2020 has certainly been a year where live-streams have grown in prominence and Wedge-Tail is ready to help out for the live-streaming needs of organisations big and small – drop us a line.
October saw more of the same with plenty of legal, licensed drone work for clients big and small, video production across the board and more professional live-streaming - so there's plenty to update you on when there's a chance to catch the breath. Stay tuned to this new blog section.
