We know St Louis very well, in fact we are also location scouts and managers for the St Louis region. And we have a vast experience with flying drones for film production.
Below are images of the production with aerial drone footage for The Layover movie in St. Louis by William H. Macy and Cinematographer, Mark Irwin. In addition, we shoot for a number of national businesses and local production studios in the region.
For safety and quality, we always shoot with a two-man crew, and we are fully insured. We adhere to FAA guidelines. Our pilot always keeps visual contact with the drone, while our navigator guides and directs the shot. Video is taken back to the studio and cropped and stabilized for universal viewing. All video and still images are high definition (HD) and digital for universal media acceptance.
We are also excited to receive an IMBD credit for aerial filmography.
The actors, Kate Upton and Alexandra Daddario, were sent up in the hot air balloon and tethered at 200 feet. Multiple takes with the Red Epic circled the balloon as the actors delivered their lines as the camera came in for closeups.
