Shoot around the globe, from behind your desk with the GPN Remote Pilot.
For several decades we’ve all enjoyed the benefits of low-priced international travel, peace and harmony. This changed during Covid, and is gaining speed with Russia’s invasion of the Ukraine and galloping prices on energy, food, and other commodities. Air travel is becoming more expensive, clients are more reluctant to travel and restrictions from Covid make traveling tricky – especially between continents. Furthermore, we are all becoming more aware of the environmental foot prints were leaving behind us and air travels for big groups are no longer a preferred approach.
GPN wants to make sure you have an option for shooting around the globe despite these restrictions, and at competitive prices. Our Remote Pilot travel can orchestrate the shoot for you anywhere in the world while you, your crew, agency and the client are able to run it all from home.
This is probably not a product for all projects, clients or directors, but it is an extremely effective way, both time and money wise, to shoot many projects. Please speak with us and together we find out if your next project is suitable for a remote shoot with our Remote Pilot.
