When it comes to aerial filming & drone hire in London, we are the UK’s leading experts.
London is an exciting and unique city to film in any capacity. It has provided a vibrant backdrop for an array of silver screen blockbusters, from the action-packed James Bond franchise to the beloved rom-com Bridget Jones’ Diary.
Taking things to the skies of this iconic landscape can bring a whole new perspective to all kinds of creative projects. If you’re using the capital as your canvas, then utilising the services of Aerial Republic can hand your enterprise a new set of paintbrushes.
As stunning a city as it is to work with, filming in London is also incredibly challenging. Not only is it heavily congested but its highly regulated and classified air-space also presents a number of obstacles. In order to make sure everything is safe and above board, as well as being produced to the highest quality, you’ll want the absolute best service available. This ensures that your project will be crafted to the best possible standards.
With our vast technical expertise and experience, we have the legally certified drones that are under 7 kg in weight. These conform to London’s specialist regulations and requirements to legally fly in London air-space, while carrying a full DSLR system.
What this means for you is that, when you use Aerial Republic, you’re not just getting the ability to film in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, but you’re also doing so with world class equipment. This allows you to capture London in all its glory and in ways that technology has only recently made possible. Our drones and our expertise take care of all the red tape, allowing you to focus on taking advantage of this new exciting way to film.
To put it simply, all you have to worry about is getting the best possible results. You can let us worry about the legal side of things.
We’re not just based in London either. Our team has helped bring together some of the best videography and photography from around the country, from Eastbourne to the Yorkshire Dales and beyond. When you’re working with us, you’ll know that you’re not only partnering with one of the leading drone experts in London, but a team who have helped craft exciting projects in a diverse set of of environments. So no matter what the challenge is, we have the passion, the skills and the knowhow to put your vision to film.
Aerial Republic also has the blanket permissions for flying in permitted airspace. With us, you can take advantage of the skills and abilities we’ve acquired over many years working with major TV stations on a wide variety of projects. These range from the factual to the fantastical.
We’ve covered multiple film and broadcast TV shoots in London for prime-time ITV and Channel 4 documentaries, as well as cable and satellite shows, such as Richard Jackson’s Gardening and Leisure for QVC.
We have filmed for Love Productions on behalf of the BBC, working on The Crystal Hotel and shot a music video in Victoria Docks — just to share a little of the vast experience we have with drone filming over London.
But we’re only just getting started. We would be honoured to be involved with your creative and/or commercial endeavour, no matter what it may be. We always look forward to expanding our experience by assisting you in creating something new and innovative: utilising the best equipment and expertise in the city to do so.
Aerial Republic is one of the only production companies who can achieve the extent of our vast London flying capabilities. We have the know-how to work in line with very tight regulations, including night flying. So when you choose to work alongside us, the scope of what you are capable of producing can be vastly expanded.
Often when it comes to photography and filming with drones in a city as highly regulated as London, these restrictions can get in the way of you achieving your vision of what your project could be. With Aerial Republic, you don’t have to compromise.
London drone filming takes knowledge of red tape and loops, which you have to be seriously dedicated and experienced to jump through. We take your project just as seriously as you do, meaning we have the passion and the ability to achieve as much as is legally possible when it comes to filming in a city as heavily regulated as London.
We know how to get the permissions you need and we’re used to dealing with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA): submitting safety cases to film in locations that require special authorisation.
So if you’re looking to get the absolute best out on your project, whether it be through aerial videography or photography, and regardless of what shape or style you want to take your creative direction in, there’s nowhere more skilled and with a greater variety of experience, both in terms of the practical side of filming and on the legal side of things, than us. We give you the best possible opportunity to create exactly what you want.
