The entire production process involves script writing, interviewing talent, filming, editing, and producing the final product. COBi Digital’s UAS operations are conducted as part of the filming process, supplementing more traditional means of photography and videography, such as fixed cameras and modern go-pro camera systems. The use of a UAV means that unobtainable aerial shots can be shot without the use of cumbersome cranes and booms. The UAV also enables video to be shot from positions that are difficult to access and would otherwise be impossible to get safely. The UAV allows for camera panning and movement that is traditionally only possible with very technical and expensive mounted camera systems and or helicopters. Adopting the UAV system appeals as it has minimal noise and operational disruption to the environment, when compared to using a full size helicopter and or camera crane system.
