Our Top Drone Showreel Tips:

Communication is Key

What are you trying to achieve with your drone showreel? Your showreel is a way of communicating your skills and services to potential customers so you need to understand what sets you apart from the competition. You must deliver this point quickly and succinctly. Your message could be as straightforward as stating who you are, what you do, and how to reach you.

Length Is Important

Keep it short. Viewers like to be entertained and engaged by video content, so you need to make the most out of as little time you have. A show reel's purpose is to help you sell yourself and your abilities. It may not work to its full potential if you add anything other than your best pieces. A fantastic one-minute showreel will far outperform a mediocre three-minute one.

Cinematic Sells

Slow-motion is more cinematic and might give the idea that you're shooting from a higher altitude, such as a helicopter. Slow cinematic establishing shots are effective. This raises the production value of the shot and gives it a more controlled and polished appearance. Any camera shake should be avoided.
