Back in June 2014 we shot many locations for the upcoming kung-fu film Once Upon a Time in Ichirouganaim. With the film nearing completion, some further aerial shots were required which Above Barbados duly delivered. Comprising multiple locations across the island, the footage will add another viewing dimension to the already impressive production.

We were tasked by the Cruising Club of Barbados with the filming and creation of a video showcasing the action and fun of the 2015 Barbados Mount Gay Regatta.

The word is that Sam Lords Castle may be rebulit - 'at last' we all say! We will have to wait and see if this actually happens, but just in case, we thought it would be good to snap some high-definition video and stills of it's current state of disrepair for posterity. The recent clear weather (and low wind today!) made for perfect shooting...

Our first visit to Cove Bay was blighted by some bad weather and overcast conditions. So we revisited on a better day today to get some further photos, videos and panoramas. The gusty wind (up to 15knots) made things a little interesting but nevertheless, we managed to snap the shots we came for!
October 11th, 2014
It was high time (no pun intended) that we gathered some nice clear stock footage from Chalky Mount. So, given how clear the day was, we packed off to the East Coast of Barbados and set about getting some reels of video and stills from the picturesque location on the East Coast.

Perhaps every quadcopter/multi-rotor pilot's worst nightmare? - having to film a mobile tower... Well, we were hired by a local media agency to film one! Internet-wide one of the main sources of 'fly-aways' is reported (although this is still up for debate) to be interference from mobile/cellular network towers interfering with controller...
