D-MAK Productions is a drone video company that has produced thousands of hours of cinematic-quality film.
Drone video productions have surpassed traditional aerial videography and photography services. Not only are drones much more cost-effective to operate — they replace helicopters, airplanes and cranes — drones travel where manned aircraft cannot.
We are a Phoenix-based drone filming company known for our exceptional aerial videography and photography services. D-MAK's team has worked with real estate developers and brokers, special events, travel and hospitality companies, and construction and automotive industries. Our drone videographers honed their aerial videography and photography shooting some of the most beautiful desert landscapes right here in Arizona.
We fly within FCC regulations using FAA-approved drones, and we follow all local, state, and federal regulations.
Shoot breathtaking birds-eye views, whether it's for a TV commercial, informational videos, B-roll for your marketing and advertising, or to record and document the status of a real estate or construction project. With an aerial pan video by drone, the camera is mounted on gimbals that smoothly rotate, able to produce 360-degree views.
In a pedestal shot, the drone operator locks its sights on a single object — a statue, building or a horizon — and moves the drone up and down to give a rising effect. Pedestal drone shots produce cinematic aerial footage that can be used within a video project or as 100% stand-alone drone footage.
A fly-over is a cinematic technique used to show the expanse of a geographical location or a landmark — from the eye's of an eagle. The fly-over drone shot is grand, smooth and graceful. The fly-over shot is often used in opening credits of movies and TV shows where the location is important to the story.
In a tracking shot, the drone keeps pace with a moving object — a racecar, a speeding train or a gazelle — and takes the viewers along a smooth and face-paced ride. We have used this type of drone shot for car commercials and sporting events.
Indoor drone videography and photography helps you promote and document large-scale events such as concerts, expos, rallies, award ceremonies and other large-scale indoor events. The quiet technology of a drone allows you to capture film and images without intruding in the event.
Drone technology allows us to return to an exact location several times to capture footage. For example, we might use this technique for a real estate developer or theme park to record several hours of footage, which we then edit together to do a time-lapse video showing the location from dawn to dusk.
D-MAK's Production team masters every shot using aerial photographers' top choices: DJI Mavic Air 2 and DJI Inspire 2 drones. Both of these high-tech drones produce unbeatable moving and still images.
DJI Mavic Air 2: Powerful, portable and compact, the DJI Mavic Air 2's advanced features capture excellent, high-definition images and video footage. With a 34-minute flight time, the Mavic Air 2 can produce 4k/60fps video, 48 megapixel photos, and 8k hyper-lapse quick shots. Its quad Bayer image sensor layers light and dark details to create a single massive HD image with depth.
DJI Inspire 2: The Inspire 2 sets the industry standard for professional aerial videography. Capture 7K raw video footage and 24 MP stills. This drone has a dual-battery system that offers a 30-minute flight time. It has retractable landing gear and built-in camera gimbals that offer 360-degree visibility.
