At Stellar Visioning, we’ve been shooting aerial cinema for over 30 years. In fact, we’re behind some of the world’s most beautiful and famous images — from Fox’s multi-award winning Glee, to Showtime’s edge-of-your-seat sensation, Homeland. We know you have a vision and are passionate about it. And our passion is to make that vision a reality.
Today’s film industry is going through major transitions, some good and some bad. But one of the good changes is that shooting aerial with high-quality cameras like the Red Epic and Arri Alexa no longer requires a full-sized helicopter. With Stellar Visioning’s fleet of drones, pilots, and DPs, you can save money and time while making your production much safer. And better, too, because you can get shots that were never possible before.
Follow that convertible down a long and winding private driveway to a stately, Gatsbyesque mansion. Continue the shot up and through a window into an elegant sitting room. End on a close-up of a beautiful woman as she lifts a glass of wine to her lips. All in a single, seamless shot. Or the racing canyon road shot that goes into the tunnel. We fly behind, on sides and in front. What previously might have taken days to set up, rehearse, and shoot — changing to tracking or truck — can now be accomplished in minutes.
The Alta Freefly is the first multi-rotor drone with the camera mounted on top of the airframe as well as below. This lets you get all kinds of killer shots that weren’t possible before. Follow the train as it goes over a bridge, then shoot the tracks from below as the train speeds by. Shoot straight up at the stars. With this top mount option, our system can be used as the highest crane ever.
The possibilities are endless, as you can probably imagine. And we’d love to show you some other ideas, including how to use UAVs to replace many tracking shots.
