Overview of drone productions and services in 2022, by Drone-Pictures Marseille

As we recently wrote on our blog, 2022 was an exceptional year for the Marseille-based drone operator, Drone-Pictures.

It was above all the confirmation that our clients are not only loyal, but that their image needs now go far beyond the mere provision of drone shots. They certainly call on us for our mastery of the creative tool that is the drone, but most of them want us to give them a "finished product", i.e. an edited film, with images on the ground, a few interviews with subtitles in English and French, music to support the whole, sometimes an animation, and always some logos.

So it's a whole different ballgame to be able to design, produce and deliver such little filmed stories. Not only did we have to equip ourselves with ground-based shooting equipment (a good half dozen ground-based cameras), but we also had to think downstream, perfect our video editing skills (and change computers to support a 4, 5 or 6K workflow)! Fortunately, the founder of Drone-Pictures already had a long career in documentary and institutional film making.

The days are long gone when Drone-Pictures - the first drone pilot company to be based in Marseille in 2011 - was only delivering outstanding images taken with its numerous drones (seven in 2023). We are now as much in demand for the production of complete reports with a subtle mix of aerial and ground shots, as for drone services for documentaries, feature films, advertising or corporate work.

Here are some of the films and reports entirely produced and directed in 2022 by the small Marseilles-based structure that we are. Small in size, but always at the creative service of large or small companies!
