We recently hired Darren Loveland of Aerial Photo Media to take his drone out for a spin over our vineyards and capture some extremely rare footage for us.
For those of you that may not be familiar with what a “drone” is or why we’re using it to shoot video, here is some information. A unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), commonly known as a drone, is a remote control aircraft without a human pilot aboard. There are many different kinds of drones with varying levels of capabilities. The one Darren uses is loaded with some extremely sophisticated technology but it is only a little more than a foot wide. Since the aircraft is flown using a remote control, we’re able to fly it over some hard to reach areas. It’s outfitted with a HD GoPro camera and the quality of the footage it is able to capture is striking.
We’re finalizing the videos now, so stay tuned. We’ll have the final footage ready in the next day or two.
