Some of HeliCam's Cooler 2016 Projects
THIS JUST IN
Check out the cool Audi A4 Allroad commercial that we worked on in Concord, NC.
It was by far the dirtiest shoot that we have ever been on. We were choking on dirt all day basically, but it was a ton of fun minus the searing heat. I have to give a hand out to our camera man Antwan Flowers who weathered the sweaty dirt bath like a true professional. HeliCam's drone also managed the heat and dirt with ease as did the Alexa Mini.
In May HeliCam shot some aerial video with our drones for a new TV Series for FX Network staring Donald Glover, Danny Glover's son, called Atlanta.
In August HeliCam worked on a new TV Series called "Hustle and Blow" which featured Atlanta's Salon Ramsey and will air on BET.
In September HeliCam was fortunate to get to do some drone aerial video on a really cool Audi shoot in Charlotte, NC and Atlanta, GA with a bunch of great people. My camera man and I offered to forego our normal day rates for a couple Audi R8s, but we never heard back on our proposition.
In early July HeliCam got the opportunity to fly the new Nokia Ozo VR camera. What an impressive piece of equipment. I am currently working on a new camera mount system to maximize the potential of the Ozo. Last year we flew a GoPro based VR rig that was customized to work with the DJI Ronin gimbal in Maui, HI. Things have come a long way since then. It is amazing that the video stream from all eight cameras are written to one memory card. I can't say enough about Able Cine as well. They sent the Ozo Tech Ben out to make sure that we got the most from the Ozo. Actually I think that Ben comes with the daily rental package.

FAA DRONE NEWS
I encourage production companies who routinely hire aerial video companies to check out our FAA page to learn more about the new "job approval" process that aerial video companies with their 333 Exemption have to go through, in some cases in order to get clearance to operate in some locations. This FAA page is under construction and will be updated on an as needed basis to keep the information current.
HELICAM'S 2015 AND BEYOND
2015 was a great year! HeliCam was privileged to get to provide the aerial cinematography for two feature films; A Walk In the Woods starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte and an India based film called Subramanyam For Sale which was a remake of an old musical. Examples of both movies can be seen in our "Reels" or the movie trailers above. Getting to work with Nascar's own Kurt Busch in his new Monster Energy commercial was a real treat. Great guy to work with. The shoot at Dynamic Aviation was a blast although a little nerve racking working around some very expensive and old aircraft. Who knew working on a big shoot for Furniture Land South could be so much fun. We got to do some hand held stuff with our Movi M5 plus a lot of great aerial shots. To cap off the year we got to do some work for Chubb Insurance for their charity golf event held this year in Pinehurst, NC. The weather wasn't great, but the rain held off and we got to do some filming on one of the most prestigious golf courses in the US, Pinehurst number 2 and number 8.

HELICAM'S PHILOSOPHY IS SIMPLE
Create the highest quality aerial video and photos possible while operating in a safe manner. If HeliCam does it's job to their full potential, the Client will be ecstatic at the end of the shoot and that, to us, is what makes the years of learning and growing to try and perfect our craft worth while. Working this philosophy has gotten HeliCam a ton of referrals and repeat business, which is great advertising.
