Westland Milk H&S Induction

It was neat to help with a big project earlier this year – making a Health and Safety Induction video for Westland Milk Products in Hokitika. Katabatic provided Second Camera and UAV aerials. It might not be the most exciting thing to watch if you aren’t being inducted, but it was really interesting to make. Seeing the facilities at the plant, and dealing with personnel from all parts of the operation was fascinating, and provided plenty of creative challenges. Sometimes the driest subject matter is the most stimulating to present.

West Coast Treetop Walk

An exciting new development opened on the Coast in December, and we produced a wee video and TVC promoting it. It was a great opportunity to test out our latest tool – the UAV. The low-level aerials around the structure were shot with the DJI F550 hexa-rotor which we purchased to test out the idea of UAV-based aerial imagery. Since then we’ve upgraded to a larger machine, the Freefly Cinestar 8, that can carry a bigger payload for longer flights. It produces even better footage! Look out for footage from it in the near future.
