Im a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here - Australia

Drone filming for Im a Celebrity AustraliaFor this Australian reality TV series, we filmed with a remote zoom lens with the Panasonic GH4 on the octocopter drone. This allowed us to shoot wide establishing shots and then zoom in tighter to cover the action of the various challenges.

The strong winds in the mountains and around the large dam wall made flying the drone a bit more challenging, but we were able to keep flying and shooting despite condition. Proving yet again that our custom designed octocopter handles tough wind conditions exceptionally well.

"That is exactly the perspective we are looking for."
-- Michael Venables (director of trials challenges)
