Aerial news footage for ABC television

Get a drone’s eye view of the world for your next media production

Getting the right shot at the right time using the right equipment is key to delivering the best possible news and current affairs television, documentaries and feature movies. Many news and media organisations are facing the decision to build or buy when it comes to using drones in their productions. While some very large news organisations may be able to step up the huge challenges of managing a commercial drone fleet, many find it more efficient and cost-effective to outsource this work to a company that specialises in drone operations.

Queensland Drones has the skills and experience you want and the operator network you need to get the best footage every time, whether it’s B-roll or even live streaming on the spot. Our network extends across most of Australia and allows us to have a drone in the air quickly, when and where you need it.

We work closely with reporters, directors, production staff and other media professionals to scout and recommend safe, legal locations to capture aerial photography and video on location and we handle all safety assessment, airspace compliance, ground safety and other legal requirements. Our operators are CASA-certified and carry full public liability insurance.

Below is an example of some video footage we captured for a recent Australian Government documentary on the migrant workforce in rural locations.

Our standard aerial video package uses industry-standard DJI drones providing 4K UHD video footage in cinematic quality at up to 60 frames per second. Where required, we can often also provide aerial coverage using heavy-lift UAVs carrying advanced DSLR cameras like the Panasonic GH4 or drones designed specifically to support film-making like the DJI Inspire 2 with Zenmuse X7 camera using an S35 image sensor, offering 6K CinemaDNG RAW and a wide dynamic range of up to 14 stops.
