In this installment of the WD Creator Series, we follow local film company CineDrones to learn more about how an eye in the sky can help you capture and save some truly stunning visuals. Flying a drone is easier said than done, requiring a highly trained and licensed pilot to follow a subject, and often needs a separate drone operator to get the right imagery. But with some tips from CineDrones owner Mike Fortin, you’ll have a better idea of what it takes to get that vibrant shot.

Maintenance is also a big part of what these experts do, so they constantly check their equipment to make sure everything is working as intended. Even then, they’re always prepared with anything from extra drones, replacement batteries, or even additional storage, so they’re ready for anything in the field. As HD cameras get smaller, drones are becoming a great choice to capture dynamic footage at a shoot. And with the right storage, you can save everything you see with your eye in the sky.
