WHO WE ARE
Out Filming was founded by Ben Norton in 2010 and represents a collective of full time staff, freelance film makers and technologists who have a passion for film. We have a unique set of talents covering everything from creative form and narrative journey to binary and aeronautical engineering. We love to be challenged and believe that quality and on-time delivery are paramount.
GEAR & TOYS
At Out Filming, we’ve got a big soft spot for our gear. We have an ethos of using the right tool for the job, meaning that some days our production is simply a guy with a camera on his shoulder, while other days can be a bit more techy.
We take pride in having awesome toys – here are some of our current favourites:
Drones, UAVs, multirotors, hellcams… they’re all names for effectively the same thing. Our aerial craft are capable of lifting cameras into the air, providing stabilisation and control over camera movement. We operate a fleet of drones of different sizes and capabilities, meaning we can scale productions from a single operator craft, right up to cinema grade camera rigs. We are fully qualified, CAA approved and insured to fly and our crew consists of commercial pilots, professional camera operators and UAV instructors, so we have the perfect skill set for aerial productions.
We use a variety of camera stabilisers, but it’s fair to say that Freefly’s incredibly versatile Movi range is our favourite. We’ve spent many hours using the entire Movi range and we own both the M5 and M15 to cover a broad range of camera weights and sizes. We’ve used our Movi systems whilst skateboarding, running, from the back of a truck, on horse back, lowered on climbing ropes and of course flown them on our drones. Our Movis enable us to create stunning shots for a variety of applications, including highly choreographed shots with quick turnaround times, to super stable slow motion tracking shots.
We enjoy making and improving gear for specific applications or to help a client solve a technical problem, and we’re constantly in R&D with our own custom builds. We have backgrounds in aeronautical engineering and electronics, and we enjoy being challenged and putting our skills to the test. In the past we’ve designed and built 3D timelapse rigs, 100mph remote control camera cars and drones capable of delivering beer bottles!
