Aerial Stock Footage
Silly Goose does more than provide stock footage. We work closely with post-production to deliver the specific footage they need. We work with supervisors, editors, and directors to understand their B-roll needs, to explore the look and feel they prefer and to secure that footage.

Great Shots, Small Package
We fly the DJI Inspire 2 with the X5S and X7 cameras more often than any other drone. We use them on-set and for aerial library footage. They’re small and feature an integrated HD downlink and camera control. And the cameras deliver exceptional quality, with 13 and 14 stops at 5K (12-bit) and 6K (14-bit) resolutions respectively in either RAW or ProRes formats.
Set up to carry the ARRI Alexa Mini or the RED Weapon/Helium, these X8 drones can fully match your ground cameras. A wide variety of lens and mounts exist including Zeiss primes and Anginieux anamorphic lenses. This platform incorporates a 1080p HD downlink, FIZ, camera control and is operated by a 3 person team consisting of a drone pilot, camera operator, and first AC.
Fast Pursuit Drones
These are custom designed platforms capable of producing high quality 4K footage at speeds up to 100MPH and operating in close proximity to vehicles or other objects. They have the smoothness of a drone but produce footage that feels like flying. These are capable of carrying a variety of micro 4/3rds based camera systems and lenses.
Drones on Wheels
Some people show up to set with the bare minimum of equipment. We do the opposite. In order to accommodate any eventuality, we bring fully redundant spare drones along with tools, cables, replacement parts and equipment.
Along with the drones, we bring large field monitors that provide a real-time view of the shot for both the camera operator and director/DP as well as feeds for the video village. To be efficient on-set, we use customized Inovativ carts.
From custom cases that carry media shuttles or charging equipment to a selection of purpose built camera control systems to a selection of tools and spare parts, we carry a lot of specialized equipment that through years of experience make the difference between good and great.
