Drones

Revered Cinema specializes in drone cinematography with Alexa Mini & Red Helium cameras, rain spinners, PL zooms, FIZ, etc for Feature Film, Commercial & TV productions

Since it seems everyone flies a drone, what makes RVRD different?

 

We have been doing this for a while: While most other drone companies buy all their drones off the internet, we custom build our heavy-lift drones specifically made to handle the heaviest of cameras packages up to 55lbs and max speeds of 100km/hr. We have been building heavy-lift drones since 2012, when we were one of the few in the world to fly a Red Epic back in the early days of heavy-lift drones. Since then, we have been continually innovating to stay on the cutting edge of heavy-lift drone technology.

 

 RVRD Rapture X8 Heavy Lift Drone

 

We are cinematographers not just RC enthusiasts: Everyone at Revered Cinema has worked in film for well over a decade, most of RVRD’s crew of 12 were in IATSE well before they asked us to join in the drone category. We included drones into our specialty camera package in 2012 & have excelled at it. We are hired pretty much daily and it has become our full-time job which we are 100% dedicated to. RVRD teams probably operate drones (Alexa Mini / Red Helium) legally & commercially more than anyone in the world, 200+ production days a year!

 

Alta Drone, RVRD Movi M10 M15, Drone Red Weapon, Red Dragon, Arri Alexa, Alexa Mini, PL UAV

Freefly Alta 8 Drone

 

We are thankful to our clients for making us North America’s premiere drone vendor: We have the broadest permits allowing us to operate pretty much anywhere and anytime with little or no prior approval required. We have been “blanket permitted” in Canada since 2013 and in 2015, granted permits from both the FAA & Transport Canada making us the 1st company to operate throughout U.S. & Canada. We were the 1st of a group to join IATSE 669 & 600’s UAS category. RVRD has over a decade of feature film experience, insured with $10 million liability and have the heaviest lifting capacities and ability to operate in all weather conditions (rain, snow, wind, over water, mountain tops, etc). We are thankful to have worked side-by-side with some of the best Directors / DP’s on some of the the largest shows made.

 

DJI Inspire 2 Drone

 

Our arsenal of “IN-HOUSE” gear is unsurpassed: Arri Alexa Minis, Red Heliums, Rain Spinners, Zeiss Ultra Prime Kits, Angenieux Zooms, Kowa Anamorphics, a dozen Freefly Movi’s, Paralinx Tomahawks, Preston FIZs, Preston Single Channels, Small HD 7″, 13″, 17″ client monitors, remote wheels, camera carts, generators, tents, trailers, etc… the list goes on & on. You need it? We have it. We have both Canadian and US teams with multiple drone packages & backups to suit any production or budget. Plus, we custom manufacture our own “Rapture Drones” capable of lifting 55lbs up to a max speed of 32m/sec (110kmh / 70mph) for productions that demand only the best in performance!
 
Take at look at our recent projects / clients which use RVRD’s experience & gear on the some of the largest Features, TV Series & Commercials around.

Q&A

• Can you use your drones in USA & Canada – Yes we have permits to operate in Canada & USA anywhere at anytime (after we do a risk assessment) + we have additional permissions like: Night Operations, 0-400ft Height, & able to operate with zero prior notice depending on location. Others require an SFOC / 333 permits which can take 20-120 days to obtain w/ restrictions depending on location.

 

• What makes your drones different – Our UAS/Drones are NOT off the shelve rigs, we custom make/design our UAS/Drones using the best/latest technology possible for the most demanding applications. Our “Raptures” X8’s dihedral design with over/under motor/prop configuration act a mini gyro stabilizers & having high mass/low surface area cuts through wind making it the most stable design period! The design works so well every production comments that its the smoothest drone that have ever worked with!

 

• How large are the UAS/Drones & are they portable – We have a mobile trailer to be on set within any drive-able location. For air transport, all UAS/Drones are collapsible designed & pack down quite small to travel anywhere in the world. Depending on the shots requirements we can fit everything needed into 1 or 2 pelican cases “well the largest case Pelican makes”.

 

• Why do you have so many UAS/Drones (10 to be exact) – We have an assortment of drones that are specific for camera payloads & budgets (our large drones are custom/designed manufactured for specific filming environments). Our “Rapture X8” has the most lifting capacity allowed for commercial permits (55lbs) & is our film workhorse, flying a Red or Alexa M, Ultra Primes, Super Speeds & Kowa Anamorphics, HD Downlinks, Preston remote zoom, Movi’s & accessories. We also provide a “Rapture Extended X8E” which is one of a kind & currently has the longest flight times of any “multirotor drone”. Its designed to carry a Flir Thermal camera can achieve 90miutes of flight time. Smaller more budget conscious drones are the Freefly Alta & DJI Inspire

 

• What equipment can you fly with: We are currently use the Movi gimbals which have a 15lbs payload. We can lift any camera around 5lbs (Red Weapon, Alexa Mini or smaller), any lens under 5lbs (Angénieux zooms, Ultra Primes, Super Speeds & Kowa Anamorphic Lens), Remote FI+Z”, Long range HD Down-link for video village, Freefly Movi M10 or M15 gimbal, etc.

 

• Is the footage smooth – Smoothest footage possible! We use the Freefly Movi gimbal systems which are unsurpassed & require virtually ZERO post stabilization!

 

• Do you provide video downlinks for video village – Yes, we provide Paralinx Tomahawk HD Long Range wireless downlinks which can achieve up too 2000ft+ range without dropout with less than 1ms of latency with custom arrays. Client/agency monitors provided via Camera Cart or handheld cages with Paralinx Tomahawk HD “long range” live video feeds which can be daisy chained to as many monitors as needed.

 

Do you have Remote Wheels (Pan/Tilt) – Yes we have “Wheels” for DP / Camera operators who are used to traditional gimbal wheels rather than thumb or tray remotes.

 

• How long can we shoot – ALL DAY… we use batteries in dual configurations up to 48,000Mah, & have enough to last any shoot, in bursts of “10-15min with Red or Alexa”, “15-30min with DSLR” & “60-90min with Flir” depending on configuration.

 

• Any wait between flights – Less than 2-5 minutes to swap out batteries/cards/camera settings/lenses.

 

• Flight distance & height – Line of sight, usually less than 1000ft horizontal, 0-150ft vertical in urban areas, 0-400ft vertical in rural areas (+400ft height with airspace approval), video feed up to 2000ft.

 

• How fast is it & can it fly in wind, rain & at elevation – Top speeds are around 65km/40mph depending on conditions – all of the rigs are specify designed to handle winds in around 20+ knots sustained (we have flown up to 30 knots gusting depending on location). We have flown on glaciers at 12,000 elevation & also operate in rain & snow conditions which most will not dare to venture!

 

• Can we change camera/lenses – YES, with a quick re-balancing which requires a short down time for Movi calibration – usually 2-3mins.

 

• Is it dangerous – It could be so we take every precaution for safety; years of experience, GPS auto pilot, automated return to home, automated failsafe landing & safety meetings before shooting, lock-offs, etc.

 

• What if it has a prop or motor failure – Our coaxial rigs all have redundancy meaning if a prop/motor fails it will still fly & return safely – even if two motors fail it will still be under control.

 

• How many teams do you have – We have multiple teams (pilots, camera operators, safety techs, producer) so we can run various concurrent jobs in USA & Canada.

 

• Are you insured – Yes we have a 10 million production insurance policy covering liability, property & equipment.

Highlite LED

Have a tough scene you need to light in a remote or difficult location? Introducing RVRD's HIGHLITE LED for drones, cables cams, vehicles, etc. The game changing HIGHLITE is capable of outputting 126,000 lumens (equivalent to a 9,000 watt HMI light) in a small package weighing 8lbs (15lbs w/ gimbal).

Introducing our HIGHLITE specialty lighting systems.

 

HIGHLITE is a custom LED light system: Designed in-house at RVRD for aerial lighting projects, capable of a BLINDING 126,000 lumens (9,000-watt equivalent), which mounts to our drone gimbals. The HIGHLITE has the ability to pan 360 degrees and tilt over 180 degrees and is operated via a wireless HD witness camera which offers the operator the ability to follow absolutely anything.

 

Multiple options available: The HIGHLITE can be converted to a specific color temperature, multiple brightness adjustments (from 14,000 lumens all the way up to 126,000 lumens), and is available in two configurations – Spotlight Mode (15º) or Flood Mode (60º). If you require even more light on your scene, the drone is then outfitted with the HIGHLITE “BRIGHT” system for an INSANE 238,000 lumens of light output, which is equivalent to 17x 1,000-watt lights… close to a 20KW HMI Fresnel equivalent flying into any position you need to light!

 

With shots getting more dynamic: Sometimes getting a light where you need it is difficult. With our systems, clients now have the ability to fly a light from ground level to 400ft high and at any distance within “line-of-sight” and speeds up to 50km/h. The HIGHLITE LED can be used as a traditional “static” light, move around objects creating unique shadow lightscapes and even track subjects at speed.

 

We also offer multiple drone systems to fly simultaneously: So one drone can light the set or subject, and one camera drone capture it via Alexa/Red cameras, or even multiples of both at the same time! If you need to light your set for a long time, we can coordinate drones so as one drone is needing to land, another can go up to keep your set and subject lit. HIGHLITE systems also acts as great in-camera spot lights, like that from a helicopter so if your budget or location is not helicopter friendly, this is your solution!

3-Axis Gyro-Stabilized Gimbal (360 pan and 180 tilt)

Cable Cams

We have in-house "horizontal & vertical" cable cams... yes we said vertical cable cams, which open up a new dimension to a traditional system. The "Sea To Sky Cam" is a single axis, point to point cable cam that can carry a 200lbs payload at speeds up to 55 mph, over a 2,000+ foot span.

RVRD has partnered with “Sea to Sky Cable Cam” to bring this amazing gear in-house.

 

We have 3 flavors of the “Sea to Sky Cable Cam”… Horizontal, Vertical and Mini to suit any production or terrain in any direction.

 

Our “Horizontal Cable Cam” motor system is very quiet: Making it perfect for indoor or outdoor venues where silence is critical and providing reliably and safely to the most demanding live broadcast, TV and features. The “Sea to Sky Cable Cam” is unique in the world due to its operation via 100% battery power – 3 phase power is NOT required, enabling the system to be portable and affordable but still offer 20 HP of continuous pull power! Light enough to travel as operators excess baggage, fast enough to set up in one day.

 

The “Vertical Cable Cam” copies the ability of our big boy horizontal system: But gives it vertical movement in which any terrain is possible from vertical, descender type rigs, to steep slope rigs are concurred with ease.

 

Finally, we have the “Mini Cable Cam” and it’s a cable cam like no other, designed specifically for cinema: Where fast set up and ease of use is a necessity. It only requires one support cable and carries the drive motor and batteries on-board (similar to a drone). The system offers precise automation, allowing for the operator to keep their face buried in the monitor without worry of driving into the anchor. The automation enables the trolley to ‘know’ where it is at any time allowing the operator to repeatedly start and stop at any point and set end stops for safety. Its unique design uses the principles of a steadicam, providing one of the most stable platforms for flying a camera. The system is capable of climbing an incline up to 20 degrees and travel up to 35 m/hr. The trolley platform can be fitted with gyro-stabilized heads such as the Flight Head Mini 3 and Movi’s and carry cameras weight matching each heads specifications. When paired with a stabilized head, the system consistently delivers smooth, stable shots.

Remote Heads

We have many in-house MOVI PRO, MOVI XL & RONIN 2 gimbals that we used handheld, shock mounted & on drones. We also offer the renowned FILMOTECHNIC "Flighthead Mini 3, 5, XL, XXL for heavy camera packages.

If you need a remote head… we have you covered: handheld, velocity & studio work !

 

First up is the “Freefly Movi” which revolutionized cinematography: the Movi is an amazing and versatile gimbal for 15lbs payload and we have a bunch of them “10 to be exact“. They can be used handheld, on drones bottom or top mounted, rigged to vehicles, decelerators rigs, over & under slug, used with Easy Rigs, attached to shock-mounts, inside tight spaces like cars, even to get those illusive “oners”… the possibilities are endless.

 

Next are the world renowned Filmotechnic’s line-up of remote heads: Mini3, XL, XXL and 6: RVRD is please to be the Filmotechnic service and equipment provider for Western Canada. We start with their smallest head the “Flighthead Mini 3.” It is the smallest of the bunch and is a fully digital head making this a great tool for 30lbs payload applications. The “Flighthead XL” is a 3 axis head which carries up to 100lbs. The “Flighthead XXL” is the power-lifter of the bunch at a whopping 130lbs payload. The Flighthead 6 is the latest & greatest head from Filmotechnic which was recently released in 2017 and has a full digital head like the Flighthead Mini3 but with a 110lbs payload capacity!

 

Specialized equipment that compliments the above: Like shock mounts from 15lbs to 72lbs payloads, coil-damps for additional vibration isolation, VFX arrays for 3 camera panoramic plate shots or 3D stereoscopic cinematography.  However, none of the heads above help if you get rain on the lens, so we offer two types of rain-spinners… one specifically made for flying our drones or handheld, the other is the Filmotechnic Zero Rain Deflector for heavier camera packages.

Much more than just a 360° VR camera: It captures an impressive 6K final resolution, has integrated “Live Stitching” so you can view the VR to make sure your getting exactly what you want before final processing,  “Live Client Monitoring” up to 600ft away via two iPad Pros to review in real-time and finally “Live Streaming” to Facebook or YouTube which broadcasts the live feed to anyone in the world – now that’s cool!

 

What good is all of the above if the footage is shaky: That problem is solved with our awesome fully stabilized gimbal. It can accept up to 12 GoPro’s and is fully stabilized on all 3 axis. It can be over or under slug, mounted to anything, and is remote operated meaning it’s independent of the vehicle’s movement and we can control the main cameras orientation, so no seam-lines ever cross the main camera view!
