New developments in drone technology driven by advanced electronics and “state of the art” lithium ion batteries have opened up all sorts of marketing opportunities for different industries. For estate agents, using a video fly-through promotes clients’ estates in a two to five minute short video and provides potential purchasers, no matter where they are located, a complete panoramic overview of the estate, and surrounding area which can be downloaded and watched at their leisure on a smart phone, tablet or personal computer.
For selling a large estate in the UK, links to the aerial video can be via the Sky Hotshots website or on the estate agent’s website; either way it’s completely different from an A4 colour brochure. A Sky Hotshots aerial video lets potential purchasers have a birds-eye view of the whole estate, which brochures simply can’t convey in still photographs.
Nick Hemsley, founder and CEO of Sky Hot Shots comments: “It’s about giving the client a great package which captivates the imaginations of potential purchasers – they can really ‘see’ the property and get a feeling of what it would be like to live there. Our flying platforms are so much more flexible than traditional helicopters. Apart from being far more cost-effective, we can fly into an open window or door and show the client real details.
Our RAVs (Remote Aerial Videography) offer much more than traditional methods – we not only have the qualified drone pilots and camera operators but more importantly, we are all qualified film makers and can edit the film using our in-house editing suites to suit the client’s priorities, so it’s a one-stop shop. We add the right music and edit the film to maintain a sense of movement and changing views, which keeps the viewer’s attention at all times.”
Sky Hotshots can make aerial films of other properties and events as well – and provide a different concept for wedding photos/videos or sporting events. See examples at: www.skyhotshots.com
