For a Premiere, it was a pure delight!
Tuesday, February 7th, 2023, the day before the OM (Marseille’s Club) / PSG (Paris Club) football match for the French Cup, we had the great privilege to fly our drones at the Orange Velodrome Stadium in Marseille – on the pitch and outside, in order to capture aerial images for an immersive VR360 video, for Orange.
The next day, Olympique de Marseille football club won the match against PSG. The story doesn’t say if there is any relation with our drone shootings, but we are very proud of it, because it hadn’t happened for a good ten years that OM beats the PSG club !
The picture above is taken from the 6K VR 360 video: Little Planet output. It is the end shot of the film that the director wanted with the stadium illuminated (800 Lux power), this at nightfall.
We made a candlelight ascent to an altitude of 100 metres, which required a proper protocol with the Marseille-Provence airport.
The Velodrome stadium was lit up especially for this flight, which only lasted about ten minutes.
Thanks to the stadium staff for their precious help and welcome.
