The Smurfs 2
Paris, France, 30 July, 2012

There are two cities in the world where aerial filming is made almost impossible : New York and Paris.

Teaming with FIRSTEP PRODUCTION and ACS FRANCE, FLYING-CAM provides unique aerial images for the movie “The Smurfs 2” in Le Jardin des Tuileries in Paris.

Thanks to relevant SARAH 3.0. Autopilot Advanced Safety Features and the respect of all safety mitigations, Flying-Cam is approved by the DSAC (Direction de la Sécurité de l'Aviation Civile) to fly in the French capital urban environment.

Without any compromise, Sony Pictures Imageworks did capture the flying images they wanted for its blockbuster, The Smurfs 2. SARAH could “smurf” around the “Grand Roue de Paris” in the Jardin des Tuileries, next to the Rue de Rivoli and facing the Louvre Museum.

Equipment: Flying-Cam 3.0 SARAH with 5K RED Epic, Zeiss Lens.
