Back in 2017 we provided the aerial film for series 8 of the hit ITV comedy drama Doc Martin. After a brief meeting with the director & associate producer we ended up going with the Inspire 2 as our drone of choice.

The owners arrived from different corners of the globe for the weekend, kicking off at The Manor in Weston-on-Green.

Once signed off we arranged permissions for flights along different legs of the journey from safe spots ensuring we had met the CAA dronecode.
