Introduction to Outdoor Event Videography

Outdoor event videography calls for both aerial and ground video crews to get unique footage from all angles. From music festivals to weddings, aerial shots can bring a new angle for viewers. Drones or helicopters can be used, depending on the budget and size of the event. HD footage is guaranteed!

Ground crews are great for close-up shots and emotions. Both crews should know the scope of the project before shooting. That way, all videos will be consistent.

With aerial and ground videos combined, you can capture any outdoor event in a captivating story!

Benefits of Aerial and Ground Video Crews

Aerial and ground video crews offer many advantages for your next outdoor event. Aerial video crew can give you a bird’s-eye view that is not possible with just groundcrews. It can also provide unique shots for a polished end product.

Ground video crews enable you to capture intimate moments and small details that aerial footage cannot. Combining the two gives you the opportunity to explore a full range of storytelling possibilities.

Aerial crew can provide valuable information on potential issues, and help scout locations and plan ahead. They should be used cautiously with shot lists to ensure balance and texture in your end product.

Planning for an Outdoor Event Shoot

Hiring an aerial and ground video crew to capture your outdoor event is a great way to get unique shots. It doesn’t matter if it’s a concert, sport event or any other activity. But, for a successful shoot, you must plan ahead!

Check the location. Make sure there is plenty of space for the drone to fly and for the camera operators.

Check the weather. Choose a day where the conditions are right. Windy or rainy days may be difficult for drones.

Check the permits and licenses. Depending on the place, you may need special documents. Research before committing to the project.

By planning carefully, you can create amazing visuals. With aerial and ground crews, your outdoor event shoot will be a success!

Preparing for an Outdoor Event Shoot

When shooting outdoors, plan ahead and be familiar with the tools needed. Preparing properly will guarantee high-quality footage and finishing on time.

Research the drone laws in your area before shooting. Not following the laws can cause fines or jail time. Have a plan for directing the ground video crews. Scripting and storyboarding will help with scheduling.

Be aware of environmental conditions like wind or rain that could affect the equipment setup and getting footage. Aiming lights at people can cause glare. Plan ahead to save time and make the shoot successful!

Capturing the Best Shots with Aerial and Ground Video Crews

Capturing an outdoor event is both a trial and a joy! Aerial and ground video crews can bring you stunning shots like never before. The aerial crew can bring you sweeping views and landscapes, while the ground crew can capture smooth transitioning and zoom shots.

These events call for experienced aerial and ground video crews, who can face all kinds of conditions. We use the best drones and cameras from major providers, to guarantee high-quality images, smooth operations and consistency.

Editing and Post-Production for Outdoor Event Videography

Once all the outdoor event footage has been captured using aerial and ground video crews, the next step is editing and post-production. This can involve color grading, creating Ken Burns effects, adding titles and credits and more. Professional post-production can take footage in various formats (4K to 1080p), cut it together for flow and pacing, stabilize motion shots, add transitions, adjust colors, add custom text titles or lower thirds, and much more.

To get a custom look that draws viewers into the story—or creates a unique atmosphere—it’s best to hire people with experience masking. Masking allows editors to source material from one scene to another. An editor might also use rotoscoping tools to create realistic composite environments and special effects in moving media. Rotoscoping tools give aerial videographers the ability to select certain elements that are independently moveable compared to background elements; this is useful for stop motion techniques and complex shots.

It’s also important for expert video teams to pay attention to sound quality as part of their post-production pipelines. Bad audio recordings can ruin an otherwise perfect video production and result in lagging viewership. With comprehensive services like location scouting and onsite field production service for two multi-camera shoots plus audio recording stages, and post-production edit suites featuring Adobe Premiere Pro, users can access these creative resources with seasoned producers overseeing every aspect of their projects.

Tips for a Successful Outdoor Event Shoot

Organizers of outdoor events face unique production challenges. Plan for any potential obstacles you might encounter during the shoot. Here are some tips to make sure the event goes smoothly:

1. Pick the right spot: Consider the weather, crowd size, and how much space you need for cameras, audio equipment, and production vehicles. Secure all permits in advance.

2. Use an aerial crew: An experienced aerial crew will capture amazing images.

3. Train your ground team: Teach them special procedures like working with large crowds and safety protocols like rapid dismounts.

4. Monitor sound quality: Wind and other factors can distort recordings, so bring sound equipment and maintain consistency.

5. Invest in camera security: Use locks or other measures to protect equipment from theft or vandalism while recording in public spaces.

Following these tips will help guarantee a great outdoor event shoot with one-of-a-kind footage!


For outdoor events, consider both aerial and ground video crews. Aerial crews offer thrilling, emotional, and unique shots. Ground crews give you all angles and perspectives. Combining the two provides amazing coverage.

Professional video teams with specialized equipment will make your event visuals unforgettable!
