LED LIGHTING EVERYWHERE

THE LED LIGHTING SYSTEMS CAN BE TAKEN TO PLACES WHERE IT WAS NOT POSSIBLE BEFORE

CINEMATIC DRONE LIGHTING

Unique shadow and lighting effects

We did it! We developed multiple drone lighting systems! Some of them are water-cooled and have a massive LED light output of 163.000 lumen and yet they are lightweight. The combination of technics behind this product is unique and provides new possibilities for use underneath drones. We developed this system ourselves, based on the Stratus leds project from America. We developed different drone lighting systems so let us know what you are looking for!

Multiple LED systems

We have developed a 'SPOT' and 'FLOOD' lighting system. This way we can cover a wide space with light or use a spotlight to pull out a specific object or area.

1800W LED POWER

We have multiple drone lighting systems between 1000 and 1800WATTS. Of course, we can also develop something completely new for your specific video production only.

Unique lighting effects

By moving a big and bright point of light slowly or at high speeds we can create unique shadow and light effects that were not possible before.

TOP DOWN / follow SPOT

By the lack of weight of our lighting system, we can place the LED's in our Gremsy H16 gimbal. This way we can control the direction of the light freely underneath our drones.

163.000 LUMEN

The reach of 163.000 lumens underneath a drone is unprecedented.

97 CRI - 5600K

We know how important it is to use high-quality lights for video production. our LEDs and lenses are of the highest possible quality!

LEDS AND LENSES

As a film production company, we know that the quality of light is essential. That’s why our drone lighting system is made with professional LED’s and lenses (97 CRI*). In contrast to other related LED lights, we don’t have yellow edges. Besides that, we work with diffuse lenses to make it look like the light is coming from one source. Our LED light can be deployed for various productions as it can give a beautiful refined cinematic effect or highlight a specific subject, for example for a commercial or product launch.

*CRI stands for “Color Rendering Index” and is a method to measure color information.

DRONE LIGHTING TECHNIQUE

To fly with our drone lighting system, a lot of technical knowledge is needed. In contrast to what lots of people think, LED lights can become really hot. Cooling them is essential but hard to realize at this level of light output. We are proud that we managed to do this with a source of 163.000 lumen and a total weight of a little less than 2KG. We made it work by adding a water-cooled system which is truly exceptional. The Drone LED light we build can be compared with an 8-10KW ARRI in terms of light output and pulls 70 Ampere at 25 Volt.

DRONE LIGHTING POSSIBILITIES

Our unique LED system creates shadows and movements of lights that have never been possible can now be produced with our drone lighting system. Next to the option to put our LED light underneath a drone you can also mount it on any vehicle or use a handheld version. Either way, you have the possibility of truly mobile light on locations it was never possible before.

CUSTOM IS KING

We offer different LED lighting systems with different weight and beam angle. We can mount it on a car, a motorcycle or have a hand-held version, it’s up to you. At Kiwi Aerial Shots we build custom products because they are always needed for productions that push the boundaries. We always try to help and work with you to make the production truly unique and customize this LED lamp in any way.

  • Today we had a drone shoot in the city center of Rotterdam. Because of Rotterdam Airport, flying a drone in this airspace requires special certificates and permits for both us as a drone company, the pilot and the drone itself. Next to that we have to work wit a so called radio transmission operator, an RT. This operator is in direct contact with the tower of Rotterdam airport to get permission for take off. But if you have all the right certifications and airspace knowledge like we do, you can make drone footage in spots like these! . . . . #kiwiaerialshots #CTRRotterdam #droneshots #Rotterdam #010 #ROC #RT #RPAL #dronecertificates #drones #kiwi

  • IT'S OUT! The new TVC about Puma as a new sponsor of @psv. The video is produced by @m_naerk and they asked us to fly our self build 1000W Drone Lighting system. Later this week we will launch a behind the scene video of this awesome production.

  • 2019 was a big year for Kiwi with lots of big drone and helicopter productions and internally we made some big steps with new gear, new employees and new drone, and company licences. From what we can see now, 2020 will not be any different. With an upcoming new office and a brand new Kiwi van, we have a solid base to focus on even bigger and more challenging projects. Bigger than a custom made 24K helicopter rig? Bigger than a 1800W moving LED drone lighting system?  Why not! Challenge us, we are here to realise your unrestricted aerial cinematography requests!!! . . . . #kiwiaerialshots #2020 #newyear #newprojects #cinematography #aerialshots #droneproductions #drones #ArriAlexa #REDcamera #helicopterproductions #custompeoductions #aerialcinematography #challenges #videoproduction #kiwi
  • Last year we we're filming an insane Dutch tradition for National Geographic. The construction of two gigantic, new years eve bonfires. These shots were part of the latest 'Europe from above' series of NatGeo for which we filmed most of the Dutch episode. As these 48 meters high bonfires got out of control, last year was probably the last time they were allowed and so this tradition is over. Good thing we were there to document it for National Geographic. . . . #kiwiaerialshots #nationalgeographic #scheveningen #bonfire #vreugdevuur #tradition #tvs #drones #netherlands #europefromabove #kiwi
