Echo Bay Media Aerials
Capturing aerial cinematic images from the sky gives a whole new perspective to any scene. It enables a greater scope and often communicates in seconds what would take dozens of images from the ground.
Aerial images are often one of the most sought-after tools to add to any production. Until recently, this involved the tremendous costs of flying full-size aircraft and specialized camera equipment, but now aerial images are much more attainable.
Although our fleet of drones allow us to simply rise above what is possible on land, we prefer to look at their use as tools in our chest that enable higher levels of creativity.
We can now see differently. We see more.
Why choose us?
Aerial cinematography is a challenging venture that can provide tremendous rewards for your production. Having the right team to bring your vision to the screen can make the difference between audience astonishment and production disaster.
There are three main reasons why we are your best choice:
We Are Cinematographers First.
We are an internationally acclaimed and awarded team of shooters. We’ve worked in over 60 countries, capturing breathtaking images for top broadcasters like Netflix, Travel Channel and National Geographic. From the sky, from the land and from deep in the sea, we know what it takes to capture the best images, in any environment.
State of the Art Equipment.
Our fleet is comprised of three different drones each capturing at least 4K, broadcast caliber footage in RAW format permitting significant post-production manipulation for the best result using our in-house colorist and stabilization.
We have also captured many hours of footage from manned fixed-wing and helicopter aircraft when drones are simply not practical for the project.
We Play by the Rules.
UAVs (drones) are not toys. The size and weight of a professional-grade flying drones can cause considerable damage to property, or worse, serious injury or death to people if something goes wrong.
Governments worldwide take these vehicles very seriously and can (and will) impose serious fines on organizations that have not filed the appropriate paperwork or followed the ever-changing mandates of the governing bodies.
Our drones are never flown without the presence of all necessary approved paperwork and our in-house pilot who holds a current Transport Canada aeroplane license. This ensures we have a comprehensive understanding of the rules, regulations and risks involved in a project of this nature. We operate in compliance with all federal regulations and are fully insured.
Rates and Booking
Each project is unique and comes with its own individual set of challenges and risks. Camera and lens choices, plus the specific shot or shots required will all affect the amount of time required to successfully capture the footage you seek. As a result, each budget must be individually tailored to the project at hand.
