CUSTOM BUILD PROJECTS
Custom BY KIWI
If it doesn't exist, we will build it ourselves
Even the best professional equipment doesn’t always meet our demands or the wishes of the DoP. Kiwi Aerial Shots provides a technical custom building service to realize groundbreaking cinematography projects.
Below you can find some of the custom projects we did in the last couple of years. From foldable heavy-lift payload drones to 22K helicopter rigs. For us, nothing seems impossible and if it doesn’t exist, we will build it ourselves!
22K RED MONSTRO CAMERA RIG
REALISING SHOTS THAT WERE NOT POSSIBLE BEFORE
It was the end of 2018 when we had a meeting with the film company Postpanic. They were working on a production and needed high resolution, 300 degrees aerials on some of the challengest airspaces of the Netherlands. We went to the drawing board and came up with two camera rigs for 3 RED MONSTRO’s for a total of 22K resolution in a 310 degrees angle.
We got our X4 heavy-lift drone a unique mount so we can fly this huge antler for a special ART project in Germany.
Kim working in the Kiwi Workshop in Amsterdam. here we have most of the needed equipment to build the most technical challenges.
To get 22K resolution we used three 8K RED MONSTRO's. Because of the overlap, it's 22K that remains, more than enough we would say.
Together with HeliAir we got the exemptions for low aerial filming in Amsterdam and Rotterdam. We got to get as low as 10 meters in the city center of Rotterdam!
This latest custom build drone can lift a payload up to 16KG! This way we can fly heavy camera setups with big prime lenses.

Below you can find a portfolio of custom build projects we worked on. from designing the equipment, building it and even operating it on set, we love to be part of the whole production providing our technical knowledge.
