The last couple of years we’re making more and more company videos with drone footage. We do this for all kinds of companies like yacht builders, transport corporations etc. Next to drone footage, we can also set up the whole production including directors, actors, storytelling, and post-production. To set up the right production it’s good to know what the goal of the company video is, for instance is it a video for external or internal use? Below are some examples of different purposes for company videos.
For such a company video it’s important to film the product or service in the best possible context. A good example of this is the yacht we filmed in for Oceanco in a perfect blue ocean. Check our corporate video portfolio to see some of the yachts we filmed for them with Mōvi and drone shots.
When we are talking about a video production for a TV commercial it’s often about showing the experience a product or service has to offer. Most of the time it’s also necessary to use text and give an explanation. At Kiwi Aerial Shots we have experience with setting up a script for commercials, having the directors roll, setting up the production and have the best editors and animators working on the post-production. You can read more information about our complete video production service you can read on our Production page.
A Corporate video is often used for internal use. The company wants to capture their brand values, their company culture and show their office. Capturing the office can be great using drone footage, depending on the location. Read more about our the corporate drone videos we make using drone footage on our Company video page.
Drone regulations in the Netherlands are constantly changing. Like in most other countries there are Dutch drone regulations regarding the weight of the drones, the height, and locations you can or can’t fly. Also, there is a difference in drone regulations between private and commercial companies flying a drone. Contact us to get to know more about Dutch drone regulations or have a look at the Dutch CTR map where you can see all the Dutch no-fly zones for drones.
To know where you can or can’t fly a drone in the Netherlands it’s best to check the CTR map of the Netherlands. The map is indicated by the no-fly zones for drones including the reason why and who to contact for a possible exception. Most of the time the reason is an airport of Helipad from a nearby hospital. The airport could be a big airport like Schiphol but also a local small glider airport. Check the Dutch drone no-fly zone map here.
In the regulation of drones, the weight of the drone is really important. This is indicated by a ROC and ROC-Light. The ROC-light drones are drones with a weight of fewer than 4 kilograms. The ROC drones are drones that weigh more than 4 kilograms.
