DJI Phantom 2 Vision Rental

DJI Phantom 2 Vision Rental

Saturnalia Productions rents DJI Phantom 2 Visions in Los Angeles or abroad. We are based in Los Angeles, but have traveled the world shooting documentaries, features, commercials and reality series for over a decade. Our credits include over twenty behind the scenes projects (Spiderman 2, Star Wars: Episode III, CSI), over 100 concerts and sporting events (Guns and Roses, Maroon 5, Jason Mraz, Super Bowl) and hundreds of hours of hours of broadcast television (CBS, HBO, Fox, Fox Sports, Bravo, MTV).

In 2012, we became drones operators in order to capture stunning visual cinematography. Our search began to identify and fly more powerful drones, with increasingly stable gimbals, that could lift heavier, and better, cameras. Of course, the drone, gimbal and camera are only as good as the drone operator (pilot).


Drone Operator in Los Angeles

Saturnalia Productions' drone operators, including the company's owner, are highly trained directors of photography with decades of experience, who understand the nuances of composition and light as it changes in real-time. Many are members of Local 600 and/or The Society of Camera Operators (SOC). We are also very safety-conscious when operating our drones—for the sake of the production company, the people on the ground and other craft in the air. Our drones never fly without having "return to home" enabled. This enables our DJI Phantom 2 drone to return to the same GPS position where it initially went airborne, in the event the transmitter fails to communicate with the receiver.

We have rented and tested multiple drones, cameras and gimbals. With the proper equipment, a DJI Phantom 2 Vision can provide broadcast quality images. However, if our drone pilot flies on a windy day or it's otherwise necessary, Saturnalia Productions will provide stabilization to the footage captured by the Go Pro Hero 4 Black Edition in post.
