Pre Flight

Our Planning and Briefing Process

  1. BRIEF – Tell us about your project. with a full creative brief of what you are looking to achieve.
  2. LOCATION – ideally the exact postcode(s) /co-ordinates where you want the filming or photography to take place. If this is undecided at this stage we need to know if you intend to shoot in an urban or rural environment
  3. PROPOSED DATE – to check availability, weather forecasts and any air restrictions that may or may no be in place
  4. SUBJECT – what do you want us to film? Actors, a sports event, property etc.

Once the above information has been gathered we can advise if the shoot is even possible from a permissions point of view and then initiate our pre flight process.

  • Pre-Site Assessment
    • Location
    • No Fly Zones
    • Land ownership
    • Determining safe take off zones
    • Risk assessments for public

With a schedule planned, we can get your shoot in to the calendar.

  • Pre-flight check
    A little before the flight date we will monitor the flight conditions such as weather and events surrounding the location, and that we have everything we need to complete a safe flight and filming.
  • On Site Assessment
    We never arrive at site unplanned and unprepared, but sometimes there is no substitute for seeing a location in the flesh, looking at some of the risk factors and natural changes and adjusting accordingly. Trees grow, flags get raised on poles and scaffolding goes up against buildings. Things like these can affect the way that a shoot goes so having a good look around before we start shooting is essential.
  • Film/Photography
    After all of the planning, checking and preparation is done, it’s time to fire up the drone and start shooting your footage.
