The five best movie scenes shot using drones

Drone Company: Skynamic

The hit TV show Game of Thrones has an unusual problem with the camera-carrying quadcopters – it has too many of them. But it's not so much the number of drones that's giving HBO headaches, it's who's flying them. Game of Thrones is so popular that many of the drones that appear over the set aren't actually being flown by the camera crew – they're controlled by private operators attempting to get a sneak peek of what is to come on the show.

Yes, this one isn't technically a movie – actually it isn't even a scene from the TV show. But the clip above, which shows the making of a commercial for the show, gives an insight into how the other films in this list were actually shot, and how that translates into the finished product.
