Muliti-million Pound Project to Show Off?

What better way to promote a prestige project than the use of the unique perspective from a drone.

Chivas Brothers put a massive investment of £25 million into their new state of the art distillery by the banks of the River Spey opened by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon. As part of the information released to the media and for in house communications Hummingbird was commissioned to provide the aerial shots.

As can be seen the only way to put the distillery in context and relate its position to the beautiful Spey was to utilise a drone. As well as providing this scene setting the smooth shots of the drone at lower levels worked well to mimic the virtual reality CGI shots that had been done during the architectural design process.

The Hummingbird shots were used by the media, BBC etc, in tandem with their own shots done on the day by ground based cameramen. This in itself made the decision to bring in the drone well worthwhile.
