LA Media‘s drone team was out and about again getting drone footage for the BBC One‘s new show ‘The Country Council’.

The show focuses on the major issues the council is currently facing such as high demand on its services while coping with stringent budget cuts.

From education to housing, repairing the roads and emptying our bins, this series focuses on the council services while also illustrating the universal social issues that councils face every day across Scotland.

LA Media was asked by Firecracker Films to produce and deliver high-quality broadcast drone footage to be used to complement the footage filmed by the team on the ground.

While the land-based production team would do interviews and close-ups, LA Media used its DJI Inspire drone to capture large scenic establishing shots.

This project saw the drone team travelling and filming all over  Argyllshire, the Isle of Bute, Colintraive, Loch Lomond, and Oban to name but a few key locations.

For a production like this, we opted to use an Inspire 2 drone to get the job done. We were blessed in terms of weather, and the Scottish climate made operating the drone a dead cinch.
