UAViate Provides Drone Consultancy to Major Hollywood Film Production

By October 19, 2014 No Comments

A Hampshire based drone operations and consultancy firm has announced one of its most exciting projects to date – working on a Hollywood blockbuster to be released next year. UAViate is currently on set lending its specialist services to the production of hard hitting action movie Criminal, set for release in 2015.


The blockbuster features a star studded cast including Hollywood icons Tommy Lee Jones, Kevin Costner, Gary Oldman and Ryan Reynolds. While the plot is top secret and cannot be revealed – filming is still taking place – UAViate can reveal it has provided drone consultancy to the production of the highly anticipated film.


James Hervey, Senior Drone Consultant of UAViate said, “This is by far one of the most exciting ventures we’ve ever worked on, as the film features some big Hollywood stars so it’s a thrilling opportunity. Our drone services are second to none, which is why Cloud 12 and the production team called on UAViate to assist this high-status project.”


Led by Paul Rigby, Managing Director, UAViate has established itself as the leading go-to drone consultancy and aerial photography specialists in the UK. As a qualified engineer, with 10 years’ experience in operations and engineering at National Air Traffic Services, Paul is ideally placed to advise and consult companies on how to implement innovative drone technology. Moreover, he is the UK legislation representative for the trade body ARPAS and the company boasts aviation safety, security and H&S specialists within its team.


Drones and other forms of unmanned technology can be highly beneficial for infrastructure inspections, aerial surveys and are a cost effective solution for aerial photography and video services. However, companies that don’t have flying experience or staff members knowledgeable in aviation safety and drone legislation will need the help of experts such as UAViate to ensure they stay within the law whilst using the technology.


James said, “It can be a difficult, time consuming operation. Organisations need to log everything including battery charging, training, safety procedures and maintenance. Our consultancy service not only allows companies to hire our aircraft equipment and pilots, we can also set them up with their very own airborne service. We love helping companies large and small take advantage of this emerging new tech – and it’s a possibility you could use the same drones which graced the set of a Hollywood movie!”
