To my immense pleasure, two young Swiss men recently accompanied me to India to shoot my new film called “Tiger Tiger”. We were shooting the film in the Sundarbans, one of the most dangerous places on Earth. It is saturated with king cobras, giant saltwater crocodiles, and ravenous Bengal Tigers. Our film is scheduled to be released later this year. I was astonished at their skills in maneuvering this flying camera (the “octocopter”) and the footage we got as a result of their daring and skills is simply wonderful. They are easy to work with, they are a pleasure to have on a shoot, and I only hope that I can work with them again soon.
I have been working with Dedicam on over 25 projects in the last 6 years. They work hard and put a lot of heart and passion in everything they do.Over the last 6 years they have stepped up their game and made everything possible that they were asked for. They always push the limits or their drones and test new things that they build themselves – to make the pictures even better or reacher higher grounds – which impresses me every time Dedicam is reliable, professional, fight for every extra inch and add new angles and flavour to any project. They just make a huge difference on every project and for sure on any set – not just with their filming skills but also with their personality and positivity that they bring along. They are for sure the best drone team around – they work together perfectly – harmony and precision. Looking forward to working with you again soon
here you go!
when i stepped out the reccee vehicle at the porsche test track facility in nardo close the sea, i told the producer “i know what they are going to say… it`s windy and we can`t fly!”
well, you guys arrived, yelled “yeah!” and shot the shit out of the place!
you proved my thesis of only getting usable crap from quadcopters wrong. and you haven`t let me down ever since… see you on the next shoot.
The Dedicam team opened my eyes to the endless possibilities of camera movement. Not only does the Dedicam system take your images to unreachable new heights, but they can also seamlessly integrate themselves into the harshest of documentary environments. I wish I could have these guys on every film!
Bangladesh/India… flying over the Sundarbans in search of tigers in an area with narrow, winding rivers covered with mangroves… the Dedicam system was the only logical choice! After five weeks of filming we ended up with the most spectacular shots I have ever seen.
