Brain Farm Pairs Phantom Flex4K with Aerigon UAV for First-Ever Ultra HD Aerial Drone Footage

Chances are, if you are at all interested in cinematography, you have heard of Brain Farm. Brain Farm is the entertainment and production company that brought you films like The Art of Flight, Jackass 3D, and View From a Blue Moon as well as tons of other film, TV, commercial, and digital content. With credentials like this as well as commercial clients ranging from Nike to Mercedes-Benz, I think it is safe to say these guys know what they are doing. For years, Brain Farm has been pushing the limits of Cinematography. That's why it comes as no surprise to hear that they recently paired a Phantom Flex4K with an Aerigon UAV to shoot the world's first Ultra High Definition, 4K aerial drone footage.

Up until now, because of its weight, the Phantom Flex4K has remained grounded. With Brain Farms new collaboration with Intuitive Aerial, they were able to develop a cinema-focused UAV system capable of carrying the camera. What does this mean? They are now able to capture beautiful ultra high definition, slow motion footage from the air, shooting 4K footage at frames rates up to 1000fps. To get an idea of the quality, check out the video above. For more information on their new rig, head over to the Brain Farm and Intuitive Aerial websites. With this new collaboration, the ceiling of aerial cinematography has been raised and Brain Farm continues to push the limits of what can be done with a camera.
