Recently we were given a great opportunity to capture some amazing aerial footage inside St. Paul’s Cathedral in London Ontario Canada. It was such a great experience and we were able to capture some amazing visuals and so I decided that I had to write about the experience.
When we were first commissioned to capture the footage inside St. Paul’s Cathedral I was a little skeptical about committing to the job. After I debriefed with the team we thought this would be a great opportunity for the Phantom because it size and weight. With the Phantom 2 being a smaller craft compared to the s1000 it allowed us to be more confident with our maneuvers inside the cathedral.
In order to be confident we could pull off the style of shots we were looking for and be safe we needed to cover all of our bases.
During this shoot we ended up having 3 people as spotters. They came along to keep eyes on the craft and be prepared to catch the craft if things got out of control.
Shooting indoors posed a great challenge because the craft’s ability to lock its position with GPS is restricted. This meant that we had to fly the craft in Attitude mode or Manual mode making for a more challenging flying experience for the pilot.
In the end this shoot went off without a hitch and the footage we captured was amazing.
Below is a sample of some of the footage captured on the shoot.
