Film production based on drone and ground images
Based on the trust that our clients have placed in us over the years, we have expanded our services to include the production of short films based on aerial and ground images, using a mix of various techniques such as timelapse or hyperlapse, as was the case in 2017 for the CMA-CGM, EOLFI, LDCT/Décathlon or for the Château de Chenonceau, for OXY-Signalétique, NGE-GUINTOLI
and the Domaine viticole de la Bégude, whose clips you can see on this page, which we made with our teams, drones and cameras. To see all our productions, check out our recent work directly on our Vimeo channel, or visit our new website: Film and Report Production based on Drone and ground filming, as well as the pages presenting our recent audiovisual productions by year: 2022 and 2023.

For an Internet webcast, we strongly recommend a short clip and never longer than 2 minutes. It is up to us to fit all the messages to be transmitted in this short format, in a punchy, dynamic and innovative way!

The short film is primarily designed for online distribution, via your website, YouTube, Vimeo and your social networks.
It is fundamental that it is not long, knowing that after the first minute the "online" viewer dropout rate is massive.
If your audience is international, an English version is to be provided, in addition to a French version or not.
Always give preference to text over voice, because Google and Youtube algorithms can now "decrypt" text to image and use it to reference your promotional or presentation video.
The budget issue
We can easily imagine that you would like to know how much the production of the films we present on this page can cost in order to quickly project you in the order of yours?
Well, let's talk about figures: in terms of audiovisual production, there is no maximum: neither in terms of budget, ideas, or even time!
There is, however, a minimum below which we cannot intervene to ensure a quality product. According to us, the minimum budget to allocate to a good short film is between 2500 and 3000 euros HT. The limit then depends on what we are going to put in this film, the places, the means and the overall time that we will have to devote to it.
The short videos presented here required between 1/2 day of shooting and more than 6 days.
Budgets vary between 3000 and 15000 euros HT.
To be complete on the minimum package that we recommend, here is what it includes, excluding travel expenses:
- 1/2 day of mixed aerial/ground filming on a single site with 3 operators: 4 hours of aerial shooting by drone, and realization of images on the ground in your premises or site ...
- 1 day of editing for the BAT version (good to shoot) lasting about one minute (max 90 sec)
- 1/2 day editing/modification of the final version and delivery in HD and 4K video
- Musical rights "royalty free" included (exclusively among the pieces we offer)
Our Film Production Package, including the study of your needs by our director, our creative proposal, the validation of the 1st editing and its modification according to your remarks, the copyright for life, any support, any format, worldwide (exclusive license on the film).
Here's what can impact the final price of the production of your clip:
a longer shooting time, therefore a longer editing time,
a film duration of more than 90 seconds,
of the most famous musics,
the need to purchase stock images via an image bank,
the use of actors or extras,
the need to rent props for the shooting (e.g. retro car or crane, etc.),
the use of one or more voice-overs,
the development of graphic animations,
filming on multiple sites, distance, and administrative difficulties in obtaining authorizations, etc...
But rest assured, we always do our best to stick to your internal or external communication imperatives, and to offer you the best quality/price ratio, because in the end, only the result counts, whatever the time or the budget.
