OUR MAIN FOCUS IS FLYING HEAVIER CAMERAS LIKE THE RED AND ALEXA MINI.
Scarab Industries has a film friendly Remote Operators Certificate (ROC) issued by the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA). This license allows us to shoot with drones in sensitive areas, close to other air traffic, buildings, people, over national roads and even at night.
We are Film People.
We began working full time in the Film Business as technical crew on 35mm Films and Commercials in 1998. When technological advances in Digital Cameras, Computer Stabilised Gimbals and RC Drone Flight Controllers made it possible for us to bring together our passions for making Films and Flying Radio Control Aircraft it was an opportunity too good to miss.
Our Bigger Drones are designed specifically for Professional Cinematography. They carry Red and Arri Mini Cameras with PL or Canon Lens Mounts, Wireless Follow Focus, MoviPro Gimbals and transmit 1080p without delay. These tools together give the Director and Cinematographer the freedom they need to create interesting and dynamic shots using camera moves and perspectives that were once impossible.
Our Smaller Drones carry the Panasonic GH4 Camera, DJI Zenmuse Gimbal, HD Video Transmitters with zero latency and shoot 4K @ 25p.
On the day experience counts. We speak the international language of film makers and get on well with Directors and crew.
SAFE. STEADY. DYNAMIC
Our Pilots hold RPL Pilot Licenses issued by the SACAA.
We have a comprehensive Safety Policy and SACAA Certified Safety Officer.
All Scarab Drone Crew have additional training in Drone Specific Set Safety.
