JBK Productions and Dreamclip Films fly aerial drone, DJI Inspire 1, over Army Drill Sergeant School Field

Throughout this week, I’ve been posting photos of my colleague, Dominic Davis (dreamcliponline.com), and me shooting aerials with the DJI Inspire 1 for the Army Drill Sergeant’s school. It is a fantastic UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) that produces incredible video. Both of us have flown DJI’s Phantom and Phantom 2 and  the Inspire is hands down the best on the market…until now!

Today, DJI announced 2 new models to their Inspire line: the Inspire 1 PRO and the Inspire 1 RAW with the Zenmuse X5 and the Zenmuse X5R, respectively. Utilizing a Micro 4/3 system, cinematographers will now be able to swap out lenses to create the look they desire. And for the 1st AC’s out there, the new Focus system is a wireless follow focus that allows for programming multiple focus points, focus makers and end points on lenses with infinite lens rotation!
As with the original Inspire, you can split the flight and gimbal controls between two operators with an additional transmitter. This allows for even greater and more complex camera movements to tell your story! Even better, with the new Lightbridge 2 transmitter, you can live stream broadcast quality video at 1080 60p resolution up to 1.2 miles in optimal conditions. Incredible!

Overall, the original Inspire was a game changer for the industry making cinematic-quality aerials available to the prosumer and indie filmmaker. Now, with this new line up, I would expect them to be on nearly every production set, commercial video shoot and broadcasted sporting event.

JBK Productions shoots Southern Wine & Spirits’s Promo!

Okay, imagine your in a club. Music is popping, your friends are having a good time and the waitress has just brought over a bottle of your favorite spirit. Your friends say, ” Hey, let’s go dance!” Sure but wait…you can’t just leave a bottle of liquor on the table! Well thanks to MoonJelly Marketing you can! JBK Productions got the amazing *hick* pleasure of providing commercial photography (and testing) for these innovative products. 🙂
