If you live in the South, then you know starting around March severe storms and tornadoes are possible. Needless to say, tornadoes are exactly what happened in mid-March. The Weather Channel called BTP to cover the aftermath of a tornado that hit Fairburn, Georgia. Fairburn is an Atlanta suburb about 10 miles from the Atlanta airport. The Weather Channel requested drone footage for this shoot so Ben headed out with his DJI Phantom 4 Pro. The great thing about the Phantom 4 Pro is the module you can attach to the transmitter so you can go live straight from the air. Watch one of the segments that aired on The Weather Channel below.
It’s that time again, a new demo reel to showcase what Ben Traylor Productions has been working on in the last year or so. From hurricanes to Trump to features and corporate video, BTP excelled in 2017. Check out our short reel!

The producer wanted this to be a 3 camera interview shoot so we flew two LED’s above the talent. Two cameras were dedicated to singles and the wide shot on the slider was there for the two-shot. Usually, crews with fly LED’s above the talent so the two-shot will not have any gear (lights, light stands, etc) in the shot.
It may not have directly hit Jacksonville, FL but Hurricane Irma still did quite a bit of damage. Parts of the downtown area was flooded. Ben Traylor Productions was with NBC correspondent Morgan Redford for the storm. Here’s one of our live shots for MSNBC.
