Nestlé Purina associates made a difference in the lives of St. Louis-area pets and people during PetCare Pride Day, the company’s annual day of volunteering, held May 24. Our drone team was selected again this year to help document the festivities. Below is a raw clip to view.
PetCare Pride Day is one way Nestlé Purina is making a positive impact in the community for pets and the people who love them. In 2015, the company donated $31.5 million worth of pet food, pet supplies and monetary contributions to pet-related charities and other community organizations across the country. Nestlé Purina also lends support to pet shelters by providing tools and resources to help get more pets adopted and education and networking opportunities for shelter professionals for continuing education.
Two person drone crew for suggested FAA safety.
Here is a news report from Mandy Murphy, Fox 2 News about our firm.
ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – The FAA last week decided to allow commercial use of drones under strict guidelines. The decision has been in the works since 2005 and still needs final approval. Current rules for drones are to fly for recreation. If commercial you need a pilot’s license. The new FAA rules allow for drones under 55 pounds, you must fly below 500 feet, further than 5 miles from an airport and not directly overhead of people. You must maintain constant visual line of site with the drone.
Haller Concepts of South County is already using drones from commercial photography and video. Safety is the most important aspect for Haller. They always use a two-man crew. One person operates the drone and keeps constant line of sight while the other watches the shot and directs the operator. Haller and many others like them will get their certificate of authorization.
Technology is far outpacing government rules. Law enforcement across the country are interested in using drones. St. Louis Police have asked for permission from the FAA. Groups like drone free St. Louis are opposed to police drones. They want strict privacy rules from the government.
Right now, the new ruling does not allow for companies like Amazon to begin delivering packages using a GPS drone. Line of sight is still required. It may take a year or two for the new FAA rules to be fully implemented.

Here is some raw video tour production footage from a recent shoot.
We take great pride in the production skills of our video plant tours. To achieve the highest throughput, we make sure that everything in our video production of your plant is where it should be, when it should be there. We video tape with normal ground methods and we also shoot with an aerial drone to get those unique vantage spots not readily seen on a normal plant video tour.
When you watch the video, pay attention to the way we utilize our camera angles and editing. You won’t see anything out of place in our quality productions. We’d enjoy showing you more plant tours we have done these past few months.
