In the field of advertisement and corporate videos, we have performed aerial shootings for major automotive brands, specializing in aerial shoots of moving vehicles, including most of the FIAT Chrysler brands: Abarth, Iveco, Jeep, Maserati, New Holland (every new model), Iveco, and Land Rover. FIAT models include: Panda (standard , Cross and Qubo), Doblò, 500 Abarth and FIAT 124 Spider. We ‘d also been filming for the world championship champion Tony Cairoli (RedBull).
We’ve gone through major projects for the promotion of industrial plants and buiding sites using a combination of aerial photogrammetry and time lapse technology.
We have worked in the television field for popular formats such as MasterChef and MasterPiece; with major Japanese broadcasters such as NHK (specifically in a reality show in the Swiss resort of Adelboden and in a documentary on alpine fauna) and TBS Vision (in a documentary of worldwide UNESCO sites); with a major Chinese broadcaster, such as Beijing Satellite Television -BST- ( in a reality show called “My wedding around the world”).
We’ve cooperated in partnership with the national Italian broadcaster, RAI, for live events such as the climbing of the “Mole Antonelliana” in Turin (to celebrate the 150th year of Italy Unification) and Giro d’Italia 2013 (Stage Canavese and Ivrea), and regularly providing them with aerial shootings on various topics from our archive.
In the film field we’ve worked on several occasions with director Davide Ferrario (for example in the film “La luna su Torino” and the documentary “Piazza Garibaldi”) and with director Riccardo Milani in the film “Benvenuto Presidente” with Claudio Bisio.
We’ve produced movies for tourism for important national and international structures such as Forte Village in Sardinia, the SeaClub Amarina tourist resort in Madagascar by Franco Rosso (Alpitour group), the Venaria Royal Palace and the Isole Borromee on the well know Lago maggiore.
In the Precision Agriculture field, we’ve carried out aerial services for: the production of so called Vigor Maps and subsequent Prescription Maps used by VTR (Variable Rate) tractors for rice and wheat cultivation; monitoring water stress conditions in corn crops; we are also active in viticulture and tomato cultivation. We cooperate with Ente nazionale RIsi (the rice national Authority) and the Agriculture Departmento of Turin University with whom he has developed a scientifically validated procedure for optimizing the fertilization process both in rice and wheat cultivation.
Here is a list of numerous references in precision agriculture:
In the field of industrial inspections, we’ve carried out aerial services for the work progress of the new Mont Blanc cablecar , called Skyway, the completion of the Brennero Motorway and for the maintenance of e Vodafone plants in Ivrea .
