AERIGON Delivers Stunning Aerial Footage for Taylor Swift Video, “Wildest Dreams”
“We used AERIGON to capture nature shots for the video,” said Brad Bestelink, Director and Producer at NHFU, based in Botswana. “We shot some great zebra and elephant material from the UAV over a two-day period.” While most of the aerials were captured from a helicopter, the AERIGON footage can be seen at the beginning of the video.
Designed and built by Swedish manufacturer Intuitive Aerial AB (publ), AERIGON is the first professional cinematography platform for film and broadcast since it provides the performance and precision necessary for modern cinema and Ultra HD camera capture. The industry-leading payload capacity of the AERIGON allows operators to use it with virtually any modern production camera.
The AERIGON gimbal has an advanced stabilization system and is operated from the ground via the new DOMINION gimbal control unit, which permits wireless, precision control of the remotely operated gimbal, camera, and lens. The AERIGON has been used on feature films, including Avengers: Age of Ultron and Into the Woods. The NHFU has relied on the AERIGON for its high-profile nature docs for BBC Natural World, National Geographic Wild, and Animal Planet.
Directed by Joseph Kahn, Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” has been viewed over 90 million times on YouTube. Taylor Swift is donating proceeds from the video to animal conservation efforts through the African Parks Foundation of America.
