AN ANGLESEY video photography company which has supplied film for some of Hollywood’s biggest film studios offered a unique snapshot of the Anglesey Show site.

Aerial Worx, set up just six months ago in a workshop in Pentraeth, is a small company of three employees which uses unmanned aircraft to film aerial footage.

Having filmed scenes for BBC and Sky TV, the company have also been contracted to do some filming for a Hollywood-based production company.

However, the remote-controlled drone was doing a different kind of job on Tuesday, as it took to the skies to film the bustling showground.

Having obtained special dispensation to fly the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) over a no fly-zone, the Aerial Worx team deployed the aircraft from the nearby Mona airfield.

Aerial Worx's view of the show

Pete Stanton said: “A lot of people have been impressed with these shots. There was a 20 mile per hour wind, but the camera stayed rock solid."

Stef Williams added: “The jobs we do vary dramatically.

“We’ve been to Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg, France and Scotland. We’ve filmed off-shore wind farms and pilots for TV shows.

“Our reputation is growing. It’s hard work but we’re growing slowly. It’s early days for us but things are looking good.”

Aerial Worx were exhibiting at the show as part of Business Wales stand, a Welsh Government service which helped start the business up, helped obtained grants and still offers expert advice to the company.
