Solar farms (which is what put me over the edge to get a drone and a license), CBS Sports Offshore racing, Real estate, Documentaries, Training, marketing..... heck EVERYthing has drone footage in it these days!
Presently I have the DJI Phantom 4 Pro Plus. I had the Phantom 4 regular, but then the Pro version came out with a 1" sensor, and adjustable iris. This sensor is larger than a LOT of professional cam corders.
I've been in video production ever since I realized in college that I really did NOT want to be an actor/waiter. After getting a BA in Theater, Theater Management with a minor in broadcasting, I went to a local community college to get some hands on experience. While I was there I worked at the PBS station on the school's campus. After moving to Raleigh, I worked at a local television station (WTVD) for a few years before I was recruited by an ad agency (Dusenbury and Alban). As the Agency Producer, I produced over 150 commercials a year for a few years... and then opened my own production oompany in 1985... Franklin Video, Inc. www.FranklinVideo.com
I've produced projects for national clients such as America's Most Wanted, A Current Affair, American Inventor, Mysteries of the Bible, McNeill Lehrer, American Academy of Family Physicians, Fonville Morrissey, Greenpeace, Habitat for Humanity, and countless others. I've produced regional and national commercials for clients such as Burger King and Factory Stores of America, as well as local car dealers and everything in between. I've worked with home builders to produce marketing videos: written and produced training videos for companies such as The Orvis Company, Merck Pharmaceuticals, Hospira, Talecris Biotherapeutics, The Pantry, Spirit Aerosystems, Amarr Garage Doors, Bosch Siemens. I have travelled extensively for these clients and more.
More recently I've been involved in documentaries. After producing a couple of documentaries for the Wake Forest Historical museum, I just spent 2 years as the Director of Photography with the Director of the famous documentary "Forks Over Knives" shooting a feature length documentary "PlantPure Nation" (www.PlantpureNation.com) which was just released nationally in theaters across the country.
I am a licensed pilot, so it was easy for me to get an FCC license as a drone pilot as well, which I have been doing for over 2 years now.
I Love this business. I get to learn something new every day.
