Happy Birthday, Trevor!

Topics:   Java Blog

Happy birthday to our own Trevor Bennett, video and UAV technician extraordinaire! Trevor's birthday was yesterday so the Java Post Production staff gathered to celebrate. And share in the cheesecake, of course. Oh sure, Trevor is a wizard with a computer keyboard and a soldering iron (not usually at the same time)...but can he handle cutting a cherry cheesecake? Looks good so far. Save a…

Courtesy of our friends at Talking Dog Studios, here's the 360° virtual reality test video Java Post Aerial Photography took a few days ago.

Fog, Fly-Pasts, and Dronies with Java Post Aerial Photography

Topics:   Java Blog

A recent real estate aerial shoot for Hungerford Properties got off to a foggy start for our Java Post Aerial Photography crew. Watch the video above to go behind the scenes. Thick fog is pretty unusual for this shooting location and the forecast, naturally, mentioned nothing. But we thought we'd try to get at least some shooting done. As you can see in the images above and below, the fog…

Testing a 6-GoPro aerial rig for Talking Dog Studios.

Topics:   Java Blog

Why hang one camera from your UAV, when you could hang six? Our friends at Talking Dog Studios are big into virtual reality, augmented reality, and interactive 3D. They approached our Java Post Aerial Photography crew about taking one of their virtual reality camera rigs into the sky. Talk about a bird's eye view! If a bird had six eyes, that is. So our UAV technician, Trevor, made up a…

First Flight of our new FreeFly ALTA.

Topics:   Java Blog

Recently, our Java Post Aerial Photography pilots, Jack and Trevor, found time to slip out to our private aerial test facilities and run our new Freefly ALTA UAV through its paces. For these initial flight tests, we left the camera off our Gremsy gStabi H-16 3-axis camera gimbal, and instead installed weights to simulate the camera payload. "We're walking before we run," says primary…

Java Post Aerial Photography makes the U. of R. Degrees Magazine.

Topics:   Java Blog

Well, perhaps it's not as impressive as receiving a PhD, but we didn't have to study as much to receive this "degree" from the University of Regina. An image taken by one of our Java Post Aerial Photography UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) was featured as a two page photo in the recent Fall/Winter edition of Degrees, the alumni magazine published by the University of Regina.

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays from Java Post!

As the businesses say on those cheesy-but-loveable local Christmas time TV ads: "From the management and staff at Java Post Production and Java Post Aerial Photography, we wish you and yours a Merry Christmas, a happy holiday, and a very healthy and prosperous New Year!" Hmm...what other local advertising clichés are we missing? Oh yes! "For a great selection and fast and…
