Commentary and Filming at Wings Over Illawarra 2016

Steve & Grant joined Ando at the Wings Over Illawarra air show in May 2016 to provide two days of commentary. Meanwhile, Steven Pam and Mark Franjic were busy capturing hours of video for the WOI 2016 DVD that we’ll be producing.

Shooting Video for Airbus

The Southern Skies Online Media team were recently hired by Airbus to record content of their new A350 XWB aircraft as it visited Sydney and Perth on its first flights to Australia. The aircraft was performing route proving flights to show that it is ready for long haul operations with short turn-arounds at each airport before flying to its next destination.

We flew up to Sydney on the 4th to shoot the aircraft arriving at 6am on the 5th. We stayed with the aircraft on the tarmac shooting external & interior content as the aircraft was inspected by media & airline guests. As the aircraft left on its next leg to Auckland, we stayed by the runway to shoot its departure before flying back to Melbourne.

Then on the 10th, we flew from Melbourne to Perth in the morning, shot the A350’s arrival in the afternoon and then flew back to Melbourne that evening after spending an hour shooting content of the aircraft on the tarmac. It made for a long day but the results were greatly appreciated by our client.

Airbus have produced some quick summary videos of the route proving flights that included Sydney (Trip 3) & Perth (Trip 4). You can access these videos by clicking on the links below:

Blitzing Avalon

Once again the Southern Skies Online Media team were at Avalon Airshow providing coverage of the 2013 event for the Plane Crazy Down Under show.

This year we blitzed the media coverage providing daily 3 to 5 minute video summaries and 30 to 50 minute audio shows. With a core team of 7 and some additional helpers, we provided excellent coverage of the event and captured plenty of audio & video content that will be released in the coming months.

You can see all the Avalon 2013 content as it’s released on the PCDU Avalon 2013 page.
