Normally I don't even try to shoot some high speed stuff with drone guys. Mostly the are inappropriate equipped, not really good in timing and arrangement and most of them have no idea how to handle a shooting with top secret high performance cars.
But you guys are the completely opposite! Your equipment is always state of the art, you´r all around the clock ready to shoot and your sense for setting up difficult shots by your self is extraordinary!
For me as a precision driver it is always an excitement racing down a high speed track while your drone is airborne.
And I would never do some low level countermoves with 300 km/h again. Except with you guys!
wohere 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.
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
I met the Dedicam “boys” Davide & Dionys a couple of years ago on a job in Lanzarote shooting a Porsche commercial. Both Davide and Dionys turned out to be great guys to work with. We met since then many times on various great locations in Europe. The waiting hours on set in between turned out to become “holiday” hours where we talked about the job and made offcourse lots of fun. On the job they take away all the stress, so it must be great for directors to have these guys around. Not because they know what they are doing, but they are always well prepared and therefore work fast and smooth.
The real A-team in drone world, they know exactly how to get what you want, ever before you can formulated the idea of storyboards.
