A multi-disciplined approach to aerial photography and filming

Air47, as part of the multi-disciplined design agency Crate47, can draw on any number of creative skills in the production of your project. Where the need arises we can combine our drone footage with any of our other film-making services to produce your finished video - these services include videography, time-lapse photography, editing, soundtrack acquisition, and graphics.

As well as aerial content generation and film production, Crate47 can also provide Branding, Web, Print and 3D services. We understand that most clients will want to acquire all the creative elements of their brand with one agency, and we achieve this by keeping their core identity coherent across all touch points.

All prices include a full risk assessment, pre-planning and site checks, and a two-man team that includes a CAA accredited pilot and a trained cameraman.

We all know how temperamental the weather is in the UK, so if it’s not suitable for flying we will reschedule for another day.
