Mobulair spent the day flying an enormous foam pig over Brighton Pier, in a promotional event for online bookmaker MarathonBet. As one of 4 pilots, each with our own pig to fly, it was a technically challenging job that needed great teamwork and constant communication in order to achieve highly coordinated line-of-sight flying. It was also a lot of fun to watch people’s reactions as they gazed skywards and wondered – had they really just seen a flying pig?!
We provided official aerial photography at an extravagant Indian wedding featuring drummers, a 5-car cavalcade and more besides. Working with the team of photographers on the ground, we captured the happy couple’s big day from above, obtaining stunning panoramas and high-altitude views of the beautiful location (the picturesque West Middlesex Golf Club). There’s nothing boring about these wedding photos – see for yourself!
We just completed a complete site survey of a building with structural damage in only 2 hours – saving our client the expense and hassle of erecting scaffolding. It was a technically challenging job that needed ultra-precision flying with no margin for error. We then constructed 3D models and orthoplanes which the architectural surveyors used to scope the necessary building work.
Our longest and most challenging project to date, the months of planning and early start paid off! We successfully captured the morning sun as it rose over the iconic 02 (previously known as the Millennium Dome) for use in a VR/interactive promotional “experience”. Take part in the full interactive VR experience at O2 venues and locations around the country soon.
We were honoured to capture the first-ever 360° aerial footage of King’s College, Cambridge, as part of a project to create a virtual campus tour. Flying alongside other operators who were filming with standard 2D cameras, the sky above Cambridge was buzzing with drones, attracting huge interest from tourists and dons alike.
Mobulair was the aerial photographer and drone pilot for indie rock band Revere’s latest song ‘Sonder’. Featuring stunning shots filmed above the Sussex coastline and a rather surprising twist, you can watch the video here (skip to 3’50” for the money shot)
Mobulair was interviewed by Rotor Drone magazine about working with James Young and The Alternative Limb Project (read more about the project in our Portfolio). Read the interview here or get a copy in your local newsagent.
For the second time this weekend, Mobulair went to the beach, this time to shoot a new music video for indie rock band Revere. Lead singer Stephen bravely endured freezing cold waves crashing over him as he lay on the beach in his best suit whilst we filmed from above using our newly built heavylift Falcon X8 aerial platform, with Sony A6300 shooting in 4k. Watch the video here
Mobulair was called to assist Flying Films on a seaside shoot for BigSmall.tv, performing delicate remote camera operation in high winds over the beach and cliffs of Palm Bay beach (Kent, not Florida sadly). It was a great day out in a beautiful location – here are some photos from the day
Mobulair was the drone pilot on a cutting-edge 360° virtual reality project for Glenfiddich Whisky, filming from the air above the spectacular Highland landscape. From lochs and streams to valleys and Glens, we captured it all. Watch the video here (if you look closely you might even catch a glimpse of the famous Glenfiddich stag)
