Aerial Property Marketing Video

525 Ferry Road Marketing Video from Skytech Aerial on Vimeo.

We were approached in early October to create a commercial property marketing video for 525 Ferry Road Edinburgh containing drone footage of the building. This was a unique challenge being close to ferry road and a site with open pedestrian access. Our first thoughts were an OSC (Operational Safety Case) operator would be required. A enhanced level of PFCO operations involving anything from major road closures, policing and ballistic parachutes on the drone.

The client did not want to spend time and money closing the road to get the most favourable angle on the front of the building. We took another look and risk assessed the site and we were happy to conduct a flight with tight cordon control. Using a pilot and 3 ground observer/spotters we controlled small cordons around each side of the site at a time to collect photo and video. We repeated this around the perimeter of the building until we had covered every angle. We also had large empty playing fields to the east of the building that allowed long pull away shots. This way we were able to complete the shoot without over flying any persons, vehicle or building out with our control. We were happy with the result all performed within our existing PFCO and insurance.
