Aerial drone filming process


Many people contact us and just ask for a price for services. We provide ballpark “from” prices on our RATES & TERMS PAGE however before we can do that we need to explain what information we require before quoting on a project and the process which accompanies it.

 At the outset we need to know the following:

  1. BRIEF – Ideally we require a full creative brief of what the client is looking to achieve and whether or not their expectations are possible and indeed safe and legal with regards to the restrictions places upon us by the C.A.A.
  2. LOCATION – ideally the exact postcode(s) where you want the filming or photography to take place. If this is undetermined at this stage we need to know if you are wishing to shoot in an urban or rural environment
  3. PROPOSED DATE – firstly we need to ascertain if we are free to do the shot and then secondly we may have to look into any additional factors which may need to be factored into shooting on that date.
  4. SUBJECT – what do you want us to film? Actors, a sports event, property etc.

Once the above have been ascertained we can advise if the shoot is even possible from a permissions point of view.

Skyvantage will then begin its PRE-FLIGHT SURVEY looking into the area where the shooting is meant to be taking place to see if there are any other factors or permissions which need to be considered.


If you want a quotation it would be great if you could provide us with as much detail as possible about your shoot including:

• Proposed location - urban, rural etc?
• Approximate shooting date?
• Subject - people, cars, property etc?
• Video or stills photography??

All information given is held in the strictest of confidence.

We'll get back to you very soon. Thank you

Thank you for contacting us. We will get back to you promptly. Skyvantage team
