Drone Company: Freefly Cinema
Martin Scorsese's film The Wolf of Wall Street hit cinemas at the end of 2013, and filming took place smack-bang in the middle of the FAA's blanket bans on commercial drone use in the US.
The pool party scene occurs at a Hamptons beach house on Long Island, New York and the initial location shot for this scene was captured by the US based drone cinematography company Freefly. The bird's-eye shot begins off the coast, and moves in to capture an aerial view of the pool party using a Canon C500 camera mounted on one of the company's octocopter drones.
