Drones for Media & Filmmaking

High-quality Aerial Videography for Professional Content Creators

At the heart of this is the DJI Inspire 2, which can be integrated with the top class X7 and X5S cinematic cameras.

When it comes to film and media, drones have it all. Able to shoot smooth and crisp footage, they help producers and journalists push the boundaries of what was previously possible, capturing remarkable aerial shots and unique angles - quickly and easily.

Drones also enhance safety - removing the need for human intervention to shoot complicated or hard-to-reach shots, and provide the chance to survey a location before the crew moves in.

Drones are transforming film and media production

Thanks to their portability, quality and flexibility, drones enable filmmakers to shoot dolly shots or complicated crane shots in minutes - a technique which would previously have taken many hours of setting up heavy equipment and costing the production thousands of pounds.

Industry professionals say that this combination has transformed the landscape for film and media production.

Take Phil Crothers, Director of Film and Co-founder of Pivotal. He has used the Inspire 2 and X7/X5S to shoot jaw-dropping scenes for production companies like Netflix, WarnerMedia, the BBC, ITV and Channel 4.

Crothers saays “Drones have become a key tool for every filmmaker.”

“Drones have become a key tool for every filmmaker. In terms of safety, operational capability and image capture, it is really hard to beat the DJI Inspire 2 drone with the X5S or X7 cameras.”

Inspire 2 - transforming content creation

Filmmakers give glowing reviews.

Incredible Footage With The Inspire 2

Experienced filmmaker, Chris Boyes, has used the DJI Inspire 2 to capture incredible footage for the BBC and L’Oréal.

And he admits that the drone and its cinematic cameras rekindled his passion for aerial photography. It's easy to see why, looking at this incredible shot!

Having struggled to capture content from paragliders and small aircraft, the Inspire 2 was Chris' 'Eureka! moment' and his company, 5kdigitalfilm, was born.

The top clients - and quality aerial content - duly followed. 

Chris said: "The Inspire 2 is so flexible. You can shoot dolly shots or complicated crane shots in minutes that would usually take hours of setting up heavy equipment and cost the production thousands."

Chris chose Heliguy as his drone supplier. He said: "I would like to thank everyone at Heliguy for their support over the years. Heliguy understands what most companies have failed to – that it’s not just about selling stuff, but a genuinely human and caring approach to every aspect of aftersales, service and support."


"The Inspire 2 and the X5S and X7 cameras have in no doubt brought with them great possibilities for effective, economical and flexible aerials in film production. The new Log and Gamut RGB colour space grade up brilliantly with the best of cinema cameras from Arri or RED, and the footage is as much at home in a commercial or feature film as it is in an epic nature documentary.”

Drones for Content Creators

Foldable, portable DJI camera drones

Thanks to their smart cinematic features and quality cameras, drones enable content creators of all abilities to capture stunning visuals.

The DJI Mavic drones are perfect for content creation on the go. This is especially true of the Mini 2, which offers 4K 30fps video in a sub 250g frame.

Drones like the Air 2S and Mavic 2 Zoom provide a great balance between portability and power, while the Mavic 2 has long been the go-to drone for professional content creators.
