Triad Engineering approached us with the need for a promotional video that would be visually appealing, showcase their projects but also portray a little about the company and the people that make it work. We were able to capture the office chemistry that makes Triad “Click” and combine that with aerials of what great teamwork can create.
The University of Alaska Anchorage came to us with a problem we hear frequently. The challenge of capturing the size of large projects or infrastructure is one we face almost monthly. Being able to do just that as well as showcase the different sections of campus was something we focused on with this project. Covering almost 500 acres, the University of Alaska Anchorage sits scattered through a greenbelt connected via sky bridges. This geographic challenge makes it very difficult to capture it’s size from the ground. We were able to divide the school into geographic based sections from the air by utilizing both helicopter and drone. This introduced a new sense of navigation for new and existing students on campus.
We designed this project for the Iron Dog snowmachine race to use as a social media distributed video with the goal of creating something you couldn’t take your eyes off. We accomplished this by combining beat matched visual effects to high energy music all while showing off the unique perspectives our aerial platforms allow us to achieve.
We love working and collaborating with other video production or media houses. When we were provided the opportunity to have a hand in capturing some unique perspectives for a production in the heart of downtown Anchorage for our friends at Hybrid Color Films, we gladly accepted. The challenge was abiding by all Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations and working Flight Standards District Office to address safety concerns in a congested class D airspace. We pride ourselves on the permissions, clearances, and certifications we have obtained and continue to utilize those tools to meet and exceed client expectations.
Laying out the differences between LiDAR and Photogrammetry data and the cost benefits associated with utilizing unmanned systems is something we do regularly for clients. In this case study we show the georeferenced outputs of photogrammetry from a multirotor platform and finished it off with a three-dimensional fly through of the project.
In an effort to better understand and document whale beachings in both Cook Inlet and the Turnagain Arm, we have developed a strategic partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). NOAA was in need of a quick-deployment, reliable platform and experienced operators that are able to handle often harsh weather conditions to perform their marine life research. We were able to meet all these requirements and safely collect never before seen data for the organization.
When Skinny Raven approached us with an idea to have a race highlight video playing at the end of each race our thoughts were “yeah, no problem.” The twist: they wanted it to be that race. Filming, editing and rendering all in less than 30 minutes in order to have the video playing at the finish line for race participants to enjoy. Most production companies would have walked away from this project at the mention of the time restraint, but we used this as an opportunity to experiment and see if what the client was requesting was even possible. With pre-production, storyboarding and crew precision, we are proud to say that we have successfully completed multiple races in this format.
