PPC - RED TV Commercial

TV commercial for PPC Cement shot near Johannesburg.

This the first time we used a RED Epic camera on the octocopter drone for a TV commercial.

We learned quite a bit on this shoot, and are grateful for the opportunity to prove ourselves capable of flying the RED Epic safely and reliably, and delivering world-class stable drone footage.

"The drone really is quite amazing, we used to do this shot with big cranes that took hours to setup."
-- Michael (director)
