Drone video of Truck Wars – an off-road action packed event held at Stafford Motor Speedway in Stafford CT. PhotoFlight Aerial Media team has put their best on this project – one two operator team for lose-up and tracking shots, and two single operator drones for b-roll and slow motion.
Since close proximity tracking of fast moving objects was required, a two operator team was necessary to deliver impressive footage safely – in two operator setup, a skilled pilot operates the drone, while the camera operator focuses on camera- exposure, focus, framing, and camera movement. Communication, coordination, and cooperation between the drone pilot and camera operator are very important, and our team’s ability to execute two operator shots is what sets our team apart from our competitors.
We chose DJI Inspire Pro drone platform for its speed and a great 4/3 SLR camera. PhotoFlight’s two operator drone team was more then up to the task, delivering dramatic dynamic tracking shots impossible or prohibitively expensive to get using any other tool or camera technique, as well as great slow-motion drone videos of great off-road action. The access and perspective offered by drone technology, combined with our skilled professional drone pilot & camera operator team has added high production value to this video.
Our Production clients enjoy many advantages of hiring professional drone operators: legal compliance, operational safety, equipment redundancy and expertise, skilled pilots and camera oper
ators who fly drones often and in many different settings and conditions, understand production workflow and roles, and are capable of delivering high production value dynamic tracking shots.
