The Berlin based Production Company It´s us Media used our drone competences for their commercial production for BMWI (Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Energie).
For this production our drone systems had been used for the drone establishing shots as well as a replacement for a crane. With this the production was able to save money besides having the flexibility of shooting different angles from very close positions to very far establishing shots within one shot.
Another special with this production was, that we had been able to fly in a night setup with light rain which worked perfect with our reliable systems and offers the production great shots with watered streets and roofs they usually would have needed an artificial wet-down for.
The Warner Bros., Barefootfilms and Producers at Work – Production Conni&Co. 2, directed by Til Schweiger, is the follow up of the Feature Film “Conni&Co.” that just started in cinemas with his daughter Emma Schweiger in the main cast.
Luckyly we had been able to show what´s possible with a professional drone system and an experienced team. So after we shot the pretty common establishing shoots as well as the VFX shoots we had been the third, the flying camera, on set for all other shots as well.
We did all that with our drones, what you would usually need a crane or a dolly for.
Most of the time we had to fly over water whilst chasing boats or pretending like a boat with a big crane rigged on it.
The starting and landing spots had also been on a shaky boat or on a raft.
Thanks to our reliable CDS-Dronesystems and our experienced team, we got more great content produced than originally requested which will also be used in the final movie.
Camera Drone Services had been responsible for the motion pictures in the latest Jeep commercial produced by Parasol Island with Elias M´Barek. For the high speed driving shots on the streets and through the forests we used one of our special remote rigs to get steady shots in very dynamic driving situations.
With our quick change system we had also been able to provide the production with smooth and steady handheld shots.
For the Berlin-Brandburg Film Commission and the Medienboard in cooperation with Studio Babelsberg and X-Filme, CDS – Camera Drone Services had been invited to do a workshop with the main Berlins and Brandenburgs Authorities and Politics concerning Drones-, Technics, flying skills, permissions and possible future scenarios concerning flying licenses and the permission process.
The workshop took place in the brand new Studio Babelsberg set “Neue Berliner Straße”.
