The Efficient Capabilities of Drone Video

Drones are at that stage of societal acceptance in which they are still a curiosity that causes great excitement, yet are seen as resources to provide lower-cost, high-efficiency services in a variety of ways. Those include delivery, surveying and – especially relevant to CRE developers and owners – video marketing.

Drone video, of the type offered by Connect CREative, provides vivid images of a property or development from close-in or high above. The drones have the capability to go closer into properties than can helicopters, at a fraction of the cost. They also can take wide-angle shots, using cine lenses that can change focal lengths.

So, these drone videos are able to take overhead shots of properties, can get inside to show the expanse of a large industrial floorplate, and detail the space of a lot and its surroundings. Being small and compact, the drones are easily transportable anywhere in the world, and Connect’s drone operators are FAA-certified to fly commercially, as is required by law.

From a real-estate standpoint, drone videos are not only an excellent tool for marketing available properties or showing off a portfolio, but brokers have also been known to use them to win a listing from a seller. The videos are also used internationally; Connect has simply translated the voice-over for international investors.

Connect uses DJI Inspire Pro 1, Mavic Pro and Mavic Air drones that shoot at resolutions up to 4K. Depending on the drone, the video can shoot in ranges of two to four miles. These drones are built to be smart, and capture the best possible shot. They aren’t the typical toy drone you can pick up at your local discount store – they’re specially made for video purposes and to carry the weight of a high-quality camera.

Drone video shoots are also very quick. Most projects take just one to two hours to shoot, not including the time needed for planning.

The quick turnaround time to shoot these videos accommodates the speed with which today’s deals are done. And with their portability, Connect CREative has shot drone video in 30 of the 50 states.

Whether you’re looking to use drone footage to capture your property, spotlight your team in an about us video, document an event, create animated content, or more, Connect CREative’s video services team is here to help you bring your ideas to the big (or little) screen.
