Space Monkey Films recently teamed up with Zoox, the self-driving taxi company, to create a dynamic and visually stunning commercial using FPV (First Person View) drones.
The challenge for Space Monkey Films was to create a commercial that showcased the speed and agility of Zoox’s autonomous taxis, while also highlighting the technology that makes them so innovative. The solution? Use FPV drones to capture dynamic shots from unique perspectives.
The production team worked closely with our team of experienced FPV drone pilots to create a series of shots that showcased the taxi’s performance in a variety of settings. From speeding around Thunderhill racetrack to navigating tight corners, our FPV drones provided a unique viewpoint that traditional camera equipment couldn’t match.
One of the advantages of using FPV drones for filming was the ability to capture shots in real time without the need for post-production editing. This allowed the production team to review the footage on the spot and make adjustments as needed, resulting in a seamless and visually stunning final product.
To ensure safety and minimize risk, the production team and drone pilots followed strict safety protocols and used high-quality equipment designed specifically for professional filming. This allowed them to capture high-quality footage while minimizing the risk of accidents or crashes.
This collaboration between Space Monkey Films and Zoox demonstrates the potential for using FPV drones in commercial filmmaking. By providing unique perspectives and dynamic shots, FPV drones can elevate the production value of any project while also showcasing the capabilities of the subject being filmed.
As the film industry continues to evolve, we can expect to see more collaborations between technology and creative teams that push the boundaries of what is possible in filmmaking.
