We have also filmed aerial footage for Discovery Channel's Mighty Trains, the cult horror/comedy movie WolfCop, the family movie A.R.C.H.I.E. featuring Michael J. Fox, kids movie The Adventure Club, the Dreamworks SKG/Amblin Entertainment feature film A Dog's Purpose, and the hit Canadian comedy feature film Corner Gas: The Movie

By the way, we also did all the visual FX and colour grading for A.R.C.H.I.E., The Adventure Club, and Corner Gas: The Movie.

"I’ve worked with Java for many years, on various projects, and they are the epitome of the term ‘talented professionals’.  An incredibly talented crew with a totally professional attitude and work ethic and a true gift for problem solving, they’re simply the best.  We were able to use their aerial film making skills on Corner Gas: The Movie, and it immediately elevated our on-screen product to heights we never imagined.  I know that sounds like I'm working in some aerial puns there, but they were all unintentional.  And all very accurate."

"I knew that a few well-placed drone shots would elevate WolfCop and help our small movie look a lot bigger. The aerials provided by Java Post were above and beyond (pun intended) what I'd hoped they'd be!"

Lowell Dean - Writer/Director - WolfCop

Java Post Aerial Photography is an experienced, fully certified and insured UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle, AKA "drone") operator, recognized by Transport Canada with an open Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC) for the the Prairie Region (Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Alberta), Atlantic Region (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, PEI, Newfoundland & Labrador), Ontario Region and Northern Region (Nunavut, Yukon, Northwest Territories).

Java Post Aerial Photography is also Transport Canada-certified to conduct flight operations within airport exclusion zones and also at night.

PLUS Java Post Aerial Photography is backed by the extensive, decades-long production experience of Java Post Production, one of the finest post-production facilities in Western Canada.

Additionally, because of Java Post's flight experience and professional reputation, our open permit from Transport Canada also provides Java Post with special permission to fly within the 9-kilometre aerodrome operating radius exclusion zone.  This is a feature not offered by many other UAV drone photography companies.

In the photos immediately above and below, you can see us doing a project right on the tarmac of the Regina Airport, while regular regular commercial flights  take off and land nearby.

Java Post Aerial Photography gives you more freedom and flexibility as to where you can capture your aerial images.

We currently operate a fleet of several different UAV "drone" units: a heavy-lift Freefly Alta 6-rotor hexacopter, a DJI S900 6-rotor hexacopter and a DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter. Our UAVs  are operated by a two-person flight crew: an experienced and certified Java Post UAV pilot and an experienced camera operator/technician (who also is a certified UAV pilot). When the project requires it, a third Java Post ground crew person acts as a safety spotter.

During flight operations, a high-definition video signal is fed directly from the camera to the pilot and camera operator on the ground, allowing the flight crew - as well as the client - to see what the camera sees in real-time. 

This real-time, air-to-ground HD video feed  also gives our clients the potential to access live aerial video shots for live broadcasting, such as for sports, news or other live event.

Whichever UAV in our fleet is being flown, our "Javacopter" can shoot smooth-as-glass images from barely above ground level right up to the legal Transport Canada UAV altitude limit of 90 metres (295 feet), shooting either HD stills or capturing 4K Ultra HD video.

Java Post Aerial Photography...it's a whole new way to look at your next project. Contact us today and let's make flight plans together!
