Drone is butted by angry ram

Drones are everywhere these days. But it seems that the most popular videos featuring drones are the ones where they go out of control and hit someone on the head.

Business Insider’s list of the 7 Best Viral Drone Videos is topped by an angry ram getting annoyed with the horribly buzzing drone hovering around its face, and butting it into a bush.

With so many people droning on about drones, you might think the angry ram has a point. They’re annoying and buzzy and everywhere, and they should be stopped before someone gets hurt.

But let me put the case for drones. At Magic Beans, we prefer not to crash into people (Jason has crashed one into the side of a mountain, where it had to be retrieved by mountain rescue, but that’s a story for another day). Drones can give you amazing shots that really put you head and shoulders above the competition (pun intended). They really give a wow factor to your video, and show that you are a company to be reckoned with.

You don’t have to fly very high to get amazing results – using GPS, drones can fly along a pre-programmed course, just above the ground, showing off your products in spectacular new ways.

You can get close up to buildings, fly indoors, over water or over a building site, getting an overview of work in progress.

The only limit is your imagination. Oh, and safety of course, we’re very hot on safety. But our drone flyers are all Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) approved, so we’ve got you covered on the safety front.

So, what are the best kind of drone videos, and how can you harness the aerial power of a drone to make a really eye-catching video?

Here are three reasons why you should consider drone shots when commissioning video for your business.

1 – Cost – Using a drone is not as expensive as you might think. If you use a drone as part of a company-wide video strategy, you can get a lot for your money. A half-day drone flying plus a half day filming could give you enough material for a whole suite of videos to use for sales, marketing and communications. For some ideas on how a drone can be used, have a look at our drone showreel

2 – Capturing work in progress, or a big event – Are you building something, knocking something down, putting on a triathlon or other sporting event? You can get great footage from above that can be used in your marketing for years to come. And if you’re a building company, a birds-eye view of the site you’re working on can give you a great view of layout, progress and safety compliance.

3 – Showing off – You use a drone because you can. Because it looks amazing. Because the kind of shots you achieve make you look like someone to do business with. And really, that’s the best argument I can give for why you should use one – because you’ll look amazing. And what better reason can there be than that?

In the meantime, do have a look at Business Insider’s list, it includes a video of a bridegroom being hit in the head by a drone, but it also shows some spectacular shots of the Burning Man festival, and a view from inside a firework display.
