4Rotor Filming is the aerial media production division of The Applegate Group, a full-service film and video production company based in Manhattan. 4Rotor is dedicated to producing high quality, HD video and still photography utilizing radio controlled aircraft and image stabilization equipment. Joe Keeney, DP, is a licensed commercial pilot which means he meets all pending Federal Aviation Administration rules for operating drones with cameras. Joe’s remote-controlled aircraft are lightweight, nimble, battery-powered and extremely cost-effective to operate. Commercials, features and documentary projects can add spectacular aerial shots by booking our experienced production team. The Applegate Group has produced independent features, shorts, documentaries as well as marketing videos for Microsoft, Verizon, Cox Communications, Sprint and Pitney Bowes. Jane Applegate has written, produced and directed specials for Discovery, NBC and Bloomberg Television. Drones fly like a helicopter with vertical flight powered by multiple electric motors. Through the use of our compact unmanned aerial platforms and our steady cams we are able to go from ground level up to and no higher than 400 feet with forward speeds of 30+mph. Our cameras shoot up to 4K with 24-30 fps. We can also produce HD/16 mp photographs. This allows us to capture angles that are nearly impossible with manned aircraft. Our remote-controlled aircraft are equipped with GPS, providing the ability to hold altitude, longitude and latitude-compensating wind while holding in a fixed position in flight. How it Works: the HD camera mounts to a gimbal which uses a computer, motion sensors (accelerometers) and rotation sensors (gyroscopes) to continuously calculate the position, orientation, and velocity(direction and speed of movement) keeping the camera perfectly still. The camera on the aircraft or the Steadicam ® can either be operated by a DP with a separate control or by the pilot. The system sends a live video feed to a monitor so the pilot and or the DP has a real-time view of what the camera is capturing.

Big power outages in NY. We were asked to assist in damage assessment utilizing the UAS, saving a tremendous amount of time spent searching. Two flight teams went down to assist, one team is still flying in NY to aid in the speedy recovery.
