Raphael - Director & Pilot
Raised outside of Quebec City, Rapha has a contagious zest for life, which grew rapidly into a passion for the outdoors when he discovered whitewater kayaking. The difficult logistics that come with documenting this sport intrigued him, sparking the beginning of his filming career. Due to a serious shoulder injury, he spent more time behind the camera growing his passion for adventure filmmaking. Once Rapha discovered aerial filming, it quickly became his primary focus. He then established his company Flow Motion Aerials and is now filming internationally. Rapha describes aerial cinematography as his Everest of filming, balancing the highly technical operation with the creative process.
"From the vantage point of space, there are no lines, no subdivisions. There is only earth, a single celestial body teaming with life; the womb in which we dwell."
2x DJI Inspire 2 Pro X5S ProRes/RawDNG + Olympus Lenses
Imagine a drone that has professional image quality and RAW shooting abilities but is small enough to be flown and carried anywhere you go. The DJI Inspire 2 Pro X5S is our main tool and is capable of delivering the most immersive and astonishing images. This UAV is capable of capturing 30MP RAW stills and 4K Ultra HD video at 60fps or 1080p Full HD at up to 120fps. Moreover, using a M4/3 sensor and multiple lenses (9mm/12mm/25mm/45mm), we are able to get great quality imagery in most light and environmental conditions. This system is always used in a dual operator setup, assuring safer flying and more advanced and precise shots. Using the new lightbridge technology, it can transmit 1080p HD video feed which allows for live broadcasting. This UAV has an approximate distance range of 7000m and an elevation of up to 120m (legal max).
2x DJI Mavic 2 Pro + PolarPro Filters
Ideal for light weight backcountry productions or for covering self supported multiday expeditions, this compact drone sure continues to impress everybody. The Mavic 2 Pro from DJI is a drone that balances power, portability, and professional-quality visuals with the inclusion of a 20MP Hasselblad L1D-20c gimbal camera. The camera delivers a 1" CMOS sensor with an adjustable f/2.8 to f/11 aperture, support for a 10-bit Dlog-M colour profile, and 4K 10-bit HDR video capture.
2x Shendrones Ichabod Jr. FPV + GoPro HERO7 Black & ReelSteady
If we consider the Inspire 2 and the Mavic 2 our main workhorses, then we must call this one our main workninja. It’s not until around 2017 that we started seeing stunning cinematic results coming out of these FPV drones. What sets this craft apart is how precisely it can be flown and how immersive the images are. Moreover, due to its size and its ridiculously fast speed, the Ichabod Jr. is the perfect tool for both flying in tight places or exploring vast mountain landscapes. The GoPro HERO7 Black supports up to UHD 4K60/50 video resolutions, and captures 2.7K120/100 slow-motion and super-slow motion video at rates up to 1080p240/200. Still images can be captured in up to 12MP resolution in bursts of up to 30 images per second. We also provide advanced image stabilization in post using After Effects & ReelSteady.
