Welcome to Cloud9 Aerials, The go-to company for professional, affordable video-production services.
A bit about the company:
Cloud9 Aerials was founded upon the grounds of the love of flying and technology. From an early age I have always been fascinated by flying, the most exciting times growing up were family holidays abroad, stepping onto the mammoth jets, taking our seats and pretending that me and my brother were the pilots, mimicking the controls of the throttle as we launched across the runway until the jet’s wheels finally left the floor.
As I was grew older, this fascination continued. Throughout the years my dad kindly bought both me and my younger brother RC Model Planes that we absolutely loved, until they met they’re end as they plummeted into near by fields… Nevertheless, it was all good fun and great practice for what would emerge in the coming years, DRONES!
Within the last 5 – 6 years, these amazing, futuristic, intelligent, sensor packing, camera wielding bits of kit have been flowing into the consumer market; with the last 3 years proving them to be more popular than ever. Which leads me onto the first drone I ever bought, the DJI Phantom 2. I took the plunge and spent my savings on the newest drone at the time from DJI, a simple drone with a 3-axis gimbal that held a GOPRO camera. Best. Purchase. Ever. It was from this moment on that I knew I wanted to keep flying these things, filming as much as I can with them. Without going into it too much, I took the drone on every holiday I ever went on and filmed whenever I could; meaning that over the years I had quite the collection of useable aerial footage.
