SkyMotion Video had the absolute privilege to be part of the 2012 crew for the Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism commercial. To be clear, this video is NOT the Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism commercial, but rather a collection of some of our favorite shots from the shoot which made use of SkyMotion Video's unique remote-contolled heli-cam technology.
The most challenging part of the shoot was definitely the sequence with the two characters in the boat. To accomplish these pre-dawn shots out in open water, the team had to operate from a second boat which followed. A special 8' x 8' landing pad was constructed at the back end of the vessel, and from here the team had to take off, fly out to get the shots, and then land - all while moving along the coast-line. Despite the back and forth movement, the tight landing space, and the need to continually match boat speeds, the maneuvers went extremely smoothly, and the results surely speak for themselves.
