Cloud Nine Media | Portugal by Drone
Portugal by drone is a stunning visual insight into one of Europe’s most picturesque countries as you’ve never seen it before. From this aerial perspective, it captures the elegance and sophistication of cities such as Lisbon and Porto, through the majestic contours of the Douro Valley to the agricultural symmetry of the winemaking region Quinta das Termas and beyond. As well providing a treat for the eyes, Portugal by drone is an incredible example of the power of drone-filming to shoot content from never-before- seen perspectives on a budget that is accessible to all. With its birds-eye views and sweeping panoramic shots, it’s an arresting and evocative journey to capture the imagination. Back in 2016, Steve Maud had crossed Portugal as a trainee cameraman filming a BBC language series called Talk Portuguese with Rob Cooke. Fifteen years later, he decided to retrace his steps, but this time equipped with one of the most exciting new developments to video technology in a generation: a drone. As a fluent Portuguese speaker, Steve was very much at home with the logistics of this solo trip, such as getting permission from the local police for filming. With his Phantom 4 drone hovering above, Steve took in some of Portugal’s most iconic landscapes and cities.

CLOUD NINE MEDIA AND THE IBERIAN ROAD TRIP

 

Back in 2016, Steve Maud had crossed Portugal as a trainee cameraman filming a BBC language series called Talk Portuguese with Rob Cooke. Fifteen years later, he decided to retrace his steps, but this time equipped with one of the most exciting new developments to video technology in a generation: a drone.

 

As a fluent Portuguese speaker, Steve was very much at home with the logistics of this solo trip, such as getting permission from the local police for filming. With his Phantom 4 drone hovering above, Steve took in some of Portugal’s most iconic landscapes and cities.

 

“From a filming point of view, you’re marrying the disciplines of cinematography with the idea of creating a visual narrative through your choice of shots. Often it’s about picking out the patterns, manmade or not, that tell a story – but, since a perspective you can’t see from the ground, sometimes these won’t be apparent until you’re up in the air and you see something incredible – that’s an amazing feeling.” Steve Maud, MD
