Plans and Prices

First steps

Thank you for your enquiry!

We require some information before we undertake a project, although we are happy to meet over a coffee, Skype or chat on the phone to discuss your requirements from the ground up, it’s good to have the following in mind for us:

The Location

This should be the exact area where aerial activity will take place. We’ll need this information in advance to check that we can legally fly there and the airspace isn’t restricted.

The work required

We want to meet your expectations so it is important we know what we will be filming. Is it a building, a wind turbine, a field, sporting event, person, venue or a shot for shot promotional film? Please let us know so we can plan accordingly, we are happy to get creative with you!

What next?

Once we’ve got a bit more information we will begin the pre-site survey. When this has been approved and deemed to be safe and the weather holds out we will be good to go!

We will conduct an on-site survey to confirm our prior findings and start our flight.

Afterwards we’ll clean up, wrap up and you’ll receive your requested footage via digital download or delivered on a USB flash drive. If you’ve just requested stills only or short raw footage clips we’ll often be able to give you this on the day. If you’ve opted for editing we’ll liaise with you further and work on this as quickly as possible.

Prices

To keep things simple and provide you with the best possible value we’ve broken things down to some common packages most people require, as not everyone needs photos, videos or editing. Please give us a call for more information or if you would like to build something more bespoke.
