LA Media was asked to film drone footage for award-winning Greek filmmaker and visual artist Evangelia Kranioti. Kranioti was selected to capture the vision of historic luxury cashmere manufacturer Barrie’s new Autumn/ Winter 2016 collection.

Kranioti’s avant-garde style brings this beautiful collection to life on the Isle of Skye. The video shows the struggle and commitment of craftsmanship with the beauty of the Scottish landscape. Using our heavy lift rig, the Vulcan Raven and our Gremsy H16 gimbal, we fly an ARRI Alexa Mini camera to take sweeping shots of Skye’s pristine shoreline. Because our drone is so versatile we were able to get fairly close to the model, who was draped in the most exquisite cashmere, to capture a really unique perspective. In one day we filmed the model in at least ten different outfits in multiple different locations.

To capture a shot of the cliffs and the iconic Neist Point lighthouse we had to fly our drone out over the Atlantic ocean, which was a pretty nerve-wracking yet totally awesome moment. To do this we had to take the drone out to the maximum limit we could legally reach.

With Kranioti’s direction, we think we were able to capture the essence of the collection. From landscapes in the south of Scotland, the video then pursues stunning Gaelic panoramas towards the North of the country. The video reveals a very enigmatic and ever glorious Scotland, with Barrie’s collection acting as the red thread that finely weaves it all together.
