Regnum Carya Golf and Spa Resort is a deluxe 5-star, secluded resort haven in Turkey. The retreat boasts an extensive range of features with an exquisite choice of guest accommodation. As aerial filming professionals, we were commissioned to fly our drone over the stunning sanctuary to capture the unsurpassed beauty of the beach, pools, golf course, holiday accommodation and extensive nature. Flowing from day to night, we filmed and edited this short video to showcase the luxury wonders of the resort.
We were keen to show off the resort’s private beach on an immaculate white sand beach overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, as well as the stunning wooden sunbathing huts that formed part of the pier that went out over the sea. Furthermore, the grounds are vast and from the air we wanted to capture the main hotel with its extensive range of family friendly amenities, all-inclusive 5-star luxury resort features and spacious standard rooms to the exclusive villas, with private pools.
The golf course, nestled in behind the resort was also an important factor to capture and illustrate the proximity of the two locations to one another. Furthermore, the Carya Golf Club, which is Turkey’s first and only golf course allowing nighttime golf with 18 floodlit holes, was another feature we wanted to capture.
How we achieved it
We decided to capture the establishing shots that would open the video and flew the drone far enough put to sea to frame the shot we were after. as with all of our flights, once we had launched the drone from the beach, we did not immediately fly it straight out to sea. Our drone pilots always hover the drone for a short time to check the flight information such as battery, satellites, wind and also that the drone responds to each of the lever movements on the remote. Once comfortable that the drone is responding as it should be we flew it out over the sea.
Flying slowly back towards the main hotel the drone was slowly lifted up to clear the hotel and capture the grounds behind the hotel and the golf course further on. With some longer pans from left to right and back again we were able to capture the hotels location and proximity to the golf course. Also with a few more fly-bys we captured the villas with their private pools. The amazing advantage of using a drone is that you can fly it from low down, through small spaces and off to heights of up to 400 feet. This was what we executed when flying low down through the villa hits on the pier and out to see, giving viewers a close up of the huts and their proximity and position to the sea.
Lastly, we changed cameras on the drone and used a camera that worked well in low light. Once the sun had gone down and the flood lights were turned on, we flew over the golf course capturing the amazing fairways lit up beautifully by the well appointed floodlights and showing off how well lit the course is for those golfers wishing to play golf of an evening. We were lucky enough to also capture the stunning sunset in the distance which gave off some truly amazing colours.
We filmed using a combination of 4K and 2K at 50fps, giving us the options in post to crop and add additional slow motion movements.
Challenges and how we overcame them
The main challenge here were the low light in both the overcast shots and the night shots. Due to the fact that we have more than one camera that we can attach to our drones we were able to make adjustments to the camera settings and capture the shots we were after without any noise.
