Seal Team Eight - Feature Film

Seal Team Eight feature filmSeal Team Eight, a feature film directed by Roel Reine has been released internationally. We had the opportunity to shoot aerials with the octocopter drone for establishing shots and action sequences, back in 2013. Some big explosions were filmed from the drone, including car explosions, building explosions, and even a boat was blown up while flying off a dam wall.

Working on our first action film with our octocopter drone was a great success, and the many lessons learned have been taken on board to be applied on future shoots.

"You are really good at this!"
-- Roel Reine (director)

The story follows a team of navy Seals, when one of America's greatest threats is about to obtain the final piece in becoming a true nuclear power and only Seal Team Eight can stop them.
