Discover the Future of Camera Movement with FPV Drone Filming

Are you ready to get up-close and personal in your video production? At Skyhook, we specialise in FPV (First Person View) drone filming, delivering immersive and dynamic visuals that captivate and engage audiences with jaw-dropping camera movement. Our history in professional drone flying started in 2013, and we possess the expertise and skill set to really make your project stand out.

Why Choose FPV Drone Filming?

FPV drone filming is a game-changer in the world of visual storytelling. Unlike traditional drones, FPV offers unparalleled agility and speed, allowing for breathtaking shots that were previously unimaginable.

You may be a producer looking to add a unique perspective to your film / TV production. Or a business owner who wants a captivating fly-thru video of your site and facilities. Either way, FPV filming is a great tool to achieve your vision and reach your audience.

FPV Expertise You Can Trust

At Skyhook, we pride ourselves on our extensive experience and specialised skills. Flying FPV drones is no easy feat – it requires silky precision, quick reflexes, an eye for the shot and a deep understanding of the technology. We have honed these abilities over years of flying, to ensure that we can deliver outstanding content every time.

Fun fact: Did you know that FPV drone pilots need to practise for hundreds of hours to master their craft? It’s like becoming a Jedi, but with cooler gadgets!

Our Cutting-Edge FPV Equipment

We have a fleet of custom drones built for specific use cases, including:

Racing drone

High speed drones ideal for racing through large landscapes, scaling natural features, diving down the sides of buildings, or chasing cars and bikes.

Cinewhoop

This drone flies smooth and gently, and has protected propellers enabling intricate shots inside buildings and around people, to be done safely. Manoeuvres through tight spaces and small gaps provide stunning shots that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats.

Sub-250g Miniwhoop

This stripped-down Cinewhoop weighs less than 250 grams, enabling us to fly ‘almost anywhere’, since drones beneath 250g are exempt from the separation distance regulations of larger ones.

GoPro 4k

We use and adapt GoPro cameras to capture 4k footage, which we then process through our post-stabilisation software for buttery-smooth results.

Versatility for any project

Our FPV drone services are versatile and adaptable to a wide range of projects:

  • TV & Film Productions: Add dynamic aerial shots to your scenes, giving your audience a fresh and engaging perspective.
  • Commercials & Content: Capture immersive footage that highlights the unique aspects of your product or service.
  • Business Promotions: Create an astounding fly-thru video to promote your business; be that a hotel, office, event space, factory, restaurant, sports facility, car showroom… the list goes on!

Here’s an example of an FPV business promo film we filmed and edited.

The Art of FPV Drone Filming

FPV (First Person View) drones are controlled by a pilot who wears video goggles displaying a live feed from the drone’s camera. This setup puts the pilot ‘inside’ the drone to allow for precise flying through buildings, windows and small gaps, creating an enthralling moving camera perspective. Unlike standard drones with GPS, ‘return to home’ and other flight aids, FPV drones require full manual control, demanding significant skill and experience to operate safely and effectively.

Safety and Precision

Creating great FPV video involves high-speed moves which fly eye-wateringly close to objects to achieve the desired visual effect. Our skilled pilots excel at placing the camera near points of interest without making contact. This blend of technical skill and artistic vision ensures we capture the perfect shot while operating safely.

    Managing Director
    Skyhook impressed with their thorough approach to the challenges of UAV flights at our Battersea site. They made me aware of the requirements for clearance in restricted airspace, and passed me copies of all their permission documents.
    Whilst on site they operated in a safe and responsible manner, managing risk by ensuring that crane operators and other traffic were aware of their movements.
    The end product was of high quality, and our management team in Kuala Lumpur received the files before the end of the day.

    Producer

    Outstanding service from initial contact through to the final shot and delivery. They raised the level of production far past our expectations. Very experienced in what they do, adaptable to what the day threw at us and delivered some fantastic work. Will work with them in the future and would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to take their production to the next level. Skyhook are the real deal.

    Fantastic expertise and very knowledgeable. We have had several drone shoots so far which have been quite challenging (filming for CGI/camera tracking) and Skyhook has delivered each time.

    A brilliant team, who provided some excellent shots for our branded content series. We were so happy to work with them and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone else.

    Fantastic eye for the perfect aerial shot, very professional, and easy to work with. Initially commissioned to create content for a Welsh Water online promo, Skyhook’s footage was subsequently used on BBC News (broadcast and online), which was a testament to their good work.

    Pete Fergusson
    Nemorin Creative Film & Video
    Owner

    Chris and the team at Skyhook are second to none within the aerial filming industry. They take safety and the strict regulations seriously while at the same time capturing stunning images. Use these guys, they’re good.

    Claire Jackson
    North One TV
    Production Manager

    Skyhook proved to be a great asset to this programme. They were ready to go and in position when required. A lot of their material made it into the final edit which we already had a number of cameras covering, so this is a testament to their work. Very easy to work with and with a number of drones to choose from.

    Tristan Chytroschek
    A&O Filmproduktion GmbH
    Producer & Director

    Working with Skyhook was great. They are friendly, efficient and very professional. The preparation and permit application went smoothly. The shoot day went like clockwork and we got all the shots we needed – and more. The footage looks great. Highly recommended!

    Andrew Swann
    Gingersnap Media
    Director

    Skyhook were great to use on our recent promotional film for Southern Water. Some stories can only be told from the air, and the footage shot for this really brought a huge sense of scale and impressiveness to the final film. Skyhook were receptive to my needs, efficient and a valuable asset to any production.

    Joseph Morris
    Pace Media
    Producer

    Great results and an absolute joy to work with — highly recommended.

    Little Dot Studios

    Chris and his team were very professional and hard-working, providing us with excellent footage and generally being a pleasure to work with. I look forward to working with them again in the future.

    Head of Music

    Skyhook really impresses with impeccable safety and professionalism. The versatility that they can offer with this unique way of shooting is freeing and inspiring. Not only do they offer a brilliant service but the way in which they do so is why we would use Skyhook again and again. They are incredibly easy to get on with and combined with a creative flair that will allow you to get the most out of this state of the art technology.

    Blink Films

    Hugely helpful and accommodating in our request to film a drone shoot in the centre of London. From the start, they realistically set our expectations as to what was possible but also worked really hard to make the shoot happen in difficult circumstances. The whole Skyhook team were great and we were really pleased with the results — dynamic and unique footage for the documentary.

    Gianni Diliberto
    Photographer and Film Maker

    It was great working with the Skyhook team. They were very informative about the procedures of drone filming and accommodating while we organised locations and dates. They took direction very well and were a genuine pleasure to work with. We managed to film some dynamic beautiful footage which added an incredible perspective to the video.

    James Dawson
    Little Gem TV
    Documentary Director

    Chris got some amazing shots for us of Stansted Airport for our BBC series. Lots of bureaucratic hoops to jump through but he did it all brilliantly. He’s well organised, focused, highly professional and really knows what he’s doing. Highly recommended!
