Mulan movie was shot using NZ homegrown quiet drone technology
Noise from drones used to capture big scenes from above is a problem across the film industry, and Auckland-based Dotterel Technologies has come up with the answer, Osborne said.
“We’re pushing the boundaries to find a solution to the impediments of using drones in movie-making,” Osborne said.
“Dotterel’s technology incorporates shrouds around the propellers or rotors. This provides a safety barrier around the rotors as well as a significant noise reduction allowing us to safely get closer to the actors and horses.”
