With the arrival of drones, the sky is no longer the limit! Position is everything when taking a photo or shooting a film and drones open up the possibilities for you. Creative Pie Films, in Birmingham, are professionally licensed UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) operators, holding the Civil Air Authority Licence to fly UAV’s for commercial purposes. We are authorised to fly at up to 400 feet (120m) which means that your film will not contravene any CAA regulations.

Our cameras are installed with a gyroscope to maintain smoothness of camera shots and have 360° rotation to ensure the perfect imagery for your film. Whether filming extreme sports on the side of a mountain, a viral video for social media, development, corporate promotional videos or surveying large tracts of land for purchase, aerial filming with a UAV is swiftly replacing the helicopter due to its convenience, and the obvious cost benefit.

the panoramic shot you envisaged without the Hollywood price tag!
