Partnered with virtually all of Yorkshire’s leading production companies, Aerial Republic is the county’s original and leading aerial videography and drone hire agency. We couldn’t be more honoured to be the pioneers of capturing this great land from the skies and we’re here to prove that sometimes, the original is the best.
We love these green and pleasant lands and want to help you use their incredible beauty to create something truly special. And we think that right here, in God’s own country, is the perfect place to do just that.
Yorkshire is our county. Based here, but also born and bred, we love to scream we’re “Yorkshire proud.” We know the area as intricately as the back of our hands and we absolutely love producing aerial videography in the region because of the stunning and diverse landscapes.
There’s a certain kind of passion that you can’t manufacture, and our deep, authentic affection for this beautiful place we call home is something that drives us to make every project we work on achieve its peak potential. That’s because the world deserves to see Yorkshire at its absolute best, and with our equipment, passion and know how, we’re certain that we can achieve exactly that.
Yorkshire includes miles of scrubland, stone mines, stone houses, rocky landscapes and the most beautiful cliffs and beaches, as well as iconic inner-city areas. Truly, one of the things that makes this such a unique place to film is the sheer variety of stunning sights that are here – ready for you to explore from the skies.
Perhaps you’ll be looking to film in the shimmering seaside towns of Filey or Scarborough, with the windswept beaches, arcades, seagulls and, if you’re lucky, the occasional spot of sunshine awakening memories of the smell of fish and chips mixed with the sea air and the sensation of snapping rock candy between your teeth. There’s a nostalgia attached to these sights and sounds that make them a distinctly unique and exciting backdrop for any film or photo, filled with fond childhood memories.
Their unique personality has also made them a hotbed for TV shows looking for a vibrant location. Recent examples include the three part BBC comedy series Sugartown.
Or maybe you’re more interested in taking on the vast and dramatic fields of the Yorkshire Dales, the Yorkshire Moors and the Peak District. These parts of Yorkshire have been inspiring artists, from film-makers to novelists for years, thanks to the contrast of idyllic scenery and their wild, untamed sense of nature.
A recent example of one of these areas being used in a blockbuster production is Malham Cove, which appeared in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Like many other parts of the Yorkshire Dales, the feature was created by a force of nature, with the limestone formation being shaped by a waterfall carrying meltwaters from glaciers during the last ice age. It has been enchanting people with its mystical, otherworldly beauty for thousands of years.
Finally, there’s a whole selection of booming city centres throughout Yorkshire. While this is a county that never forgets its past, it’s also one that is always looking to the future. There’s therefore plenty to choose from if you’re looking for a more modern look at what makes us so special.
Whether it’s Leeds, Sheffield, Bradford, Wakefield, York or any number of the great cities scattered throughout Yorkshire, you’ll be amazed at the sheer variety of personalities found across our fair lands.
It’s probably one of the reasons so many choose to film here. We’ve seen all sorts recorded in our cities, from soaps to documentaries, with the new BBC drama series Love, Lies and Records being filmed right here. The love affair between the film and TV industry and Yorkshire shows no sign of letting up and, considering all the incredible sights there is to shoot, we don’t see it ending anytime soon.
While Aerial Republic is a national and international drone hire company, because of Yorkshire’s incredible scenery, we find ourselves being hired by the UK’s biggest production companies to film in our home county on a regular basis. We’re proud to be putting our own stamp on the cultural future of the land we adore so much.
In Yorkshire, we’ve filmed everything from TV commercials (including cycle plan) and well known documentaries to hugely popular TV series, including The Indestructibles.
At heart, we’re filmmakers and professionals who come from a diverse background in award-winning media production. For us, content is key. Yes, we fly drones and operate steady-cam brushless-gimbals but ultimately, whether on the ground or in the air, we are film-makers at heart.
With us, you’re not just getting the most experienced, best prepared and expertly skilled team around: you’ll also be working with the most passionate and dedicated. We want to produce aerial videography that shows our county to be as beautiful and special as we know it is, so the rest of the world can see it the way we do.
In order to achieve your vision, we also offer a diverse range of filming services. Whether you’re shooting on RED for a feature film, require 4K TV broadcast quality footage or you’re an architect or construction firm in need of 3D landscape modelling or a roof or site survey, we’ve got you covered.
