Drone Footage Captured for Television Commercial

Did you know Earl & Sedor are FAA Licensed Drone Operators?

Earl & Sedor Productions was recently hired by a nationally recognized production company to provide the aerial footage in Dallas and Wilkes-Barre for a television commercial.  As FAA licensed operators, we had the legal authority to fly the mission and get the shot you see here.  This footage was flown by John Sedor and JB Earl was the camera operator.  Special attention was needed because we were within the boundaries of a heliport and near the flight path of a local airport for one of the sites.  After checking the NOTAM’s(Notice to Airmen) for any restrictions to flight, we set up a secure perimeter at each facility to launch our aerial camera platform and monitored the local air frequencies.  Drone flights carry a risk due to the potential for incursion of protected airspace and possible collision with manned aircraft.  It is critical that commercial drone flights be carried out by FAA licensed part 107 operators.  Liability can also pass to the client and so the client needs to properly vet the operator.

Earl & Sedor Productions goes 4K!

Here’s our new Sony Z150 4k video camera.  We chose this model for it’s usability in production environments.  Though delivery of media in 4k is rare at this point, we want to make it available for our clients, as well as having the flexibility of 4k footage in editing.  B&H Photo Video in New York City shipped it quickly to us.
