What is FPV
FPV stands for First-Person View. This is a different form of flying drones and capturing footage, because the pilot also uses goggles to see exactly what the drone is seeing, just like they were flying on board the drone.
FPV footage has become a new and engaging type of drone filming, because of how engaging it is. When the drone banks left and right, or up and down, the video footage shows that.
Should YOu have FPV Footage in My Video
FPV footage is very fun to watch, but that doesn’t mean it should be a part of every video.
Here are some of the deliverables that would not benefit from FPV Footage:
- Construction Progress Updates – These videos are designed to keep developers and owners in the loop about the progress of a build without having to be on site.
- Time Lapse Videos – These video missions are automated so they can be overlaid, and FPV is flown manually.
- Special Events – FPV drones are loud, and they can ruin the moment. They are also designed to move quickly, so having a crowd of people that don’t know what the drone is capable of, might not be the best decision.
Here are some of the deliverables that would benefit from FPV Footage:
- Social Media Packages – When a video or image pops up on someone’s feed, we have 1-3 seconds to capture the attention of the viewer before they scroll past it, and that time is getting smaller and smaller. You need something engaging to capture the viewer’s attention! FPV footage immediately captures your attention. It is fast, quick moving, and it covers so much visually that viewers are pulled in.
- Real Estate – These videos are designed to tell the story about the property, show the surroundings, and capture the essence of the location. FPV drone footage allows you to get a view of the interior of the house where the drone flies through every room. This helps tell the story of the inside and the outside.
- Marketing Videos – FPV footage is exciting, and all marketing videos should be as exciting as possible to pull viewers in.
- Video Production – More and more we are seeing FPV drone footage on the big screen. Action shots, car chases, and battle scenes are being shot with FPV drones, because the footage adds to the excitement and fast-paced nature of the movie.
FPV drones and FPV footage is such a new thing, and we are still learning like everyone else. Like anything, it is simply another tool that can be used to tell the story you want to tell. If you want FPV footage, please contact us, and we will can talk about how it can best fit your vision.
