The tide is changing in terms of making videos. The aerial shots that only Hollywood filmmakers are capable of doing can be done by an ordinary person using a drone. The drone revolutionizes the world of aerial photography.  A regular guy who doesn’t have a degree in filmmaking can make a great video taken on a bird’s eye view just by using this handy piece of technology.

Real Estate Vidoe Production

But what are the types of footages that the drone can take that are excellent shots for your video? Drones are great for shooting aerials of luxury homes for real estate agents. These luxury homes can cost upwards of $3Million dollars. Realtors get a good commission if they’re able to sell the house. Thus, many realtors have begun to film professional videos showcasing their luxury listings. Los Angeles luxury real estate brims with multi-million dollar listings. It comes as little surprise how many luxury agents invest in professional video production to market their listings.


Company Branding Videos

Another idea is to use a drone to take group shots. Using a drone to take a big crowd fit in a single lens is a great idea. The best way to get a great group shot is to take advantage of your company’s next big outing event. Fly the drone up and make sure you have everyone in a nice group, look up at the drone. You can maneuver the drone around the group to get a different shot as well. One advantage of taking a group shot with a drone is that you don’t need to the right placing of shorter and taller people to look good in the video. The drone can cover all of the people in the group regardless of where they stand.

Different Angles and Shots

Another way of using a drone for making a video is to use it as a stabilizer. It is the reason why drone shots are very smooth even if you are not smooth controlling the remote. Removing the propellers allows the user to easily manipulate the drone. Power it up to make the camera and gimbal active, and treat it the way you handle other camera stabilizers. It may not be the most comfortable thing to hold but it will surprise you what kind of shots it can deliver. This is great for real estate home videos as well.

The best advantage of the drone over other gadgets is its ability to “reveal” the subject. It’s a beautiful shot if done correctly and smoothly. Have your subject stand in a certain position and fly backward with the drone at a steady speed. Consequently, you can also fly from afar and close in on your subject. Example, you can start by hovering the drone near the subject. After few seconds, make the drone fly away from the subject to “reveal” what’s around the subject. Or you can do the reverse version of the reveal. Start with a larger view then direct the drone to the ground to reveal the real subject. Either way, the results will be amazing. With luxury homes, this shot works extremely well as it trully captures the audience’s attention.

The use of the drone has solved the dilemma of picture and video making years before it came to public use. With this technology, video making has become easier and more beautiful.
