"One of the things I love about video production and editing is the wonderful places I get to see as part of my job. While I don't fly drones myself, I get to work with some of Melbourne's best drone pilots. Its always a buzz! Here's a piece I worked on a couple of years back, showcasing some of the different environments we fly our drones in. Whilst use of drones is sometimes controversial, all of our drone work is CASA approved with full licensing, site specific permissions and rigorous Occupational Health & Safety compliance."
