How We Work

Perhaps you've never hired a CAA approved drone company before or you're just interested what it's like working with Afterglow Film, a little information is provided here which should hopefully help.

Obviously, not every job or project is the same; some jobs may require a drone to take some simple aerial photographs, some aerial filming, many days of aerial filming, detailed surveys or ad-hoc aerial camera support.

Whatever the your project is, we work with you to get it priced quickly, scheduled and our pilots where you need them as soon as we can.

You can expect good humour, professionalism and a friendly experience from us. We like an adventure and we like a challenge.

All of our pilots are CAA Approved and we are fully insured with public liability.
