Retrospective of the last aerial shoots with Papa Sierra, two documentaries and a few TV shows ; focus on the new 2019 projects : attending the AFC Micro Salon Show and keeping up our upgrading strategy for our nine gyro-stabilized systems ands lenses replacements.

Papa Sierra started the year with the filming in 8K resolution of an ambitious documentary on Egypt. The programme includes three weeks of aerial shooting with its GSS C520 system equipped with a Red Weapon Helium camera.

After the project just ended, Papa Sierra took part in the image recording for the documentary Bleu Congo. This time the team chose to use the Cineflex Elite system, an Arri Alexa M camera and a Canon 30-300mm zoom lens for the shootings. All this equipment was set up on a Mi-8 military helicopter.

The event will take place at the Floral Park between 8th and 9th February.

Papa Sierra keeps up its upgrading strategy for his nine gyro-stabilized systems. It goes through the lenses replacement, for big sensors cameras as well as for 4K 2/3’’, enabling to carry big 45X zooms lenses. This is a perfect setup for wildlife documentaries.
