Filming with Sheffield based VuAir a test sequence in the Peak District, UK. Experimenting with and Octocopter on how best it can be used to film outdoor sports including climbing, abseiling, walking, running and cycling.
F & M have used mini helicopters on a number of previous occasions but we think the new technologies brought to filming by VuAir are very exiting for future work. Please see the short film below.
