PRESS RELEASE: March 8th, 2017. Glasgow, Scotland.

One of Scotland’s leading commercial drone operators, Airborne Lens, today completed a new round of funding to ensure that they remain as leaders in the provision of creative digital media and aerial imagery services. This new investment will support their growing digital media services such as their popular virtual tours, 360 Video, viral video production as well as bringing in a dedicated business development manager.

“We have recently launched Airborne Media, our specialist video and digital media production unit” said Director of Airborne Lens, Liam Anderstrem. “They will focus on creating high impact video, professional photography and virtual tours for social media and websites, while our industry leading drone unit will continue to produce powerful aerial cinematography for film and TV. In 2016, our videos were viewed by at least 15 million people, with one of our music videos hitting over 2.5 million views on Facebook alone. The marketing power of social media is so often overlooked by businesses, and video remains the king for getting noticed.”

We are just as at home producing aerial filming and photography for websites, marketing and social media as we are for the film and TV industry. But each requires a different platform, cameras and skillsets. Our drone team includes specialists in marketing, surveying, and utilities as well as TV and film, and we can cover virtually every aspect of the rapidly growing drone industry.”
