September Update | - We say goodbye to our interns (for now!)
Its been an incredible summer and we loved having our interns working with us through the summer on various projects, running cameras, equipment and helping us with post-production editing, to keep our client projects moving forward, we enjoyed spending time with them in the field, teaching them some of the ropes and how industry works. We've already offered our interns an opportunity to come back during their University breaks and to join us again for the 2022 season as we start to plan for additional growth during the winter months. We also set a few new milestones during August and September with the volume of video productions, number of drone flights and photo shoots we had booked and completed last month and into September, keeping our team extremely busy. We are now booking production work through the end of September and now into October.
Earlier this month we had the privilege to support the Newmarket Optimist Hall with their 37th annual conference where we live streamed the entire three day event out to the local community and to those who were not able to attend the sessions in person. We also secured many new clients and some hired us again the same month to deliver additional photography and video production services. As such, we would like to acknowledge and welcome the following new clients and of course our existing clients for their continued support.

July Update | - What happened to June!
Spring boarding off our incredible May and June months we head into July, which in the first week secured 5 large video production projects and a few real estate projects thrown in for good measure, we've further expanded our team to now include production assistants, post-production editors and content creators along with keeping our virtual staging team and animators busy. So what's on our agenda for July? We have been retained by the City of Toronto to shoot a video production of their Street Art project, this is an initiative to bring together over 200 artists both local and Indigenous to create amazing art along Richmond Street, downtown Toronto from Parliament Street to Bathurst. Our team will be on location next week to direct and produce the video which will show the artists creating their amazing artwork, interviewing local artists, event organizers and flying our drones across the entire project (with NavCanada RPAS approval and City Approval of course). We then wrap up this project and move onto our next and third production, rounding out the month with a new series of online training courses with LIFT Leadership at the end of the month.
As we have mentioned before, we continue to invest in our people and technology, last month we replaced our aging DJI Inspire 1 with the latest from DJI, the Inspire 2, to compliment our existing DJI Mavic's (we have two of them) and its already cleared to support the projects this month and will be on location next week. We added on more camera equipment, stabilizers for our mobile shooting, additional technology and software, and hired additional team members to support our growth and current projects. We are pleased to announce and introduce, Emma Ormsby to our 2021 team lineup, Emma is our intern Production Assistant and currently enrolled at York University in a degree program for Video Production, we're pleased to have Emma on the team for this production season, welcome Emma!.

As the winter months are upon us, we will continue to operate our drone through the winter months as we have deployed self heating batteries and new technology allowing us to fly below sub-zero temperatures.

We produced over 45 short videos discussing aspects of their business, which will be used on their social media channels, addressing some of the frequently asked questions they hear.

We completed a number of projects and you can read about some of them on our new "Recent Projects" page, along with our reviews on our website and Google. We just signed three new customers this month and waiting to hear on five other exciting projects, for both real estate, commercial projects and a few corporate events thrown in!, they commence next month and into the fall. Our new drone has been constantly flying on various projects around the GTA, recently logging its 80th flight and we've only had her less than three months! As some of our followers may have read, we intend to keep our older DJI Inspire 1 for specific projects she was designed for, and to use her as a trainer for our new crew and pilots, who will be working their way through the Basic and Advanced training programs, to get certified by Transport Canada. By re-purposing our DJI Inspire 1, allows us to make way for our third new drone which will be used on some of our Cinematography and video production projects, starting soon.
Lastly, as we head into the fall, we'll be ramping up our photography and drone work even more, our drones now fly with intelligent heated batteries, which allows us to fly in the colder climate, we'll continue to work on a broad range of commercial, residential and special events projects through the year, so look for new content coming to our website and social media channels.

Our drones are equipped with state of the art, Emergency Response Systems, allowing us to hold the Transport Canada Certification for Special Event Operations.
