Experimental drone video production over Wannsee

As part of the research in the MultiDrone Project, one of our consortiums investigates how drones can support journalistic work in an innovative way. The project plan foresees a set of evaluation scenarios due in the third project year, when the custom-made MultiDrone UAVs are ready to fly. In order to gain more experience with hands on drone-cinematography until then, DW has started experimenting with off-the-shelf drones. One of those experiments was the trip to the Meteora region in Greece, in August 2018. There, a DW-team used three drones (Mavic Pro, Mavic Air, Inspire 2) to closely follow two climbers exploring the wonderful mountain peaks in the area.

In October 2018, the project took it a step closer to the actual MultiDrone production scenario: A live rowing regatta.

Stunning footage: Multidrone @ Meteora!

Let’s keep this short: In August, Team Multidrone and our colleagues at Euromaxx recorded stunning aerial footage at Meteora, a famous Greek rock formation. The idea behind the drone shooting was to learn more about drone cinematography for TV production in a real production environment. While having an experimental setup, the material created was used for a DW TV report on rock climbing. Here’s a high quality version of the clip — solely for your enjoyment:

Drones in media production: Creating a new look and feel

This year, we have started working on a new (EU co-funded) project called MultiDrone. One of our goals in this project is to develop a specific drone cinematography aiming for new visual experiences by operating multiple camera drones at the same time. This will take a lot of testing, and failing, and testing again in order to achieve this goal.
