Specialists in Aerial Video and Photography
We specialise in flying remotely piloted lightweight camera equipped drones to capture stunning aerial video and stills photos from a totally unique and engaging perspective.

A professional service with CAA Permission to Fly
Our pilots have undergone extensive training and have all passed the BNUC-S qualification issued by the European Unmanned System Centre (EuroUSC). We have full permission to fly from the UK CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) as well as public liability insurance covering us for five million pounds. We carry out risk assessments and follow the health and safety policies in our operations manual to provide a safe and efficient flight and service.

Lightweight, go anywhere, rapid deployment
Our area of expertise lays with small, lightweight camera drones / unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). Our systems are highly transportable and are housed in compact ABS plastic flight cases and can be rapidly deployed and ready to fly in a matter of minutes. Our remotely piloted aircraft weigh in at less than 1.5kg each and can remain airborne for 20 minutes at a time.

Aerial video
Aerial video can instantly give your video production the Hollywood look at a fraction of the price. Our camera systems film full 1920x1080 high definition video at 25 and 50 frames a second, allowing us to produce efficient slow motion shots without the need to 'fake' it when editing.

Owing to the size of our systems we can fly in confined spaces and produce shots that are simply stunning.

The green alternative to helicopters
Our aircraft are powered by efficient high capacity batteries that allow us to remain airborne for up to 20 minutes with needing to land to change batteries.

We are allowed by law to fly up to 400 feet high and can capture stunning vistas at a fraction of the cost and impact on the environment that a full size helicopter or aircraft makes.

We can fly almost anywhere as long as we have the correct permissions in place. We've flown all over the country taking photos of various subjects and we just love a challenge.

Our four wheel drive pick up trucks can get us pretty much anywhere and have the capacity to carry our aerial kit and a lot more in addition.

New for 2014
We'll be shortly adding BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera equipped hexacopters to our fleet. These larger aircraft weigh in at around 7kg and feature full three axis Zenmuse gimbals and retractable legs as well as single or twin operator control. Contact us for details!

It is often a daunting experience to film in a foreign country and having a reliable Fixer on the ground makes it a lot easier, and that is where Magic Touch Films comes to the forefront.

Most African countries require filming permissions or licensing, temporary work visas, and carnets or customs documentation for temporary importation of equipment. All of these will be sourced quickly and easily on your behalf by Magic Touch Films and we have excellent relationships with the various government bodies and organisations, which make us super-efficient, highly competent and well-organized.

Accommodation and vehicles are of international standards and will meet your expectations and level of comfort in most African countries.

Our travelling motto is that no location is inaccessible. We can travel either by road or light aircraft to the remotest parts of the country. We will work closely with clients to devise the best schedule and logistics to meet your production’s available time schedule and budget.

Our locations range from the ever changing vistas of the dune-sea, desert landscapes, African savannah, captivating mountains and canyons, rivers and lakes as well as rural villages, cities and abandoned ghost towns. Namibia also offers natural panoramas filled with an abundance of wildlife which is a natural history filmmaker’s dream, as well as rustic rural villages of a variety of ethnic groups and tribes for the visual anthropologist.

TYR Solutions is a risk mitigation company.

We provide a number of solutions from training, equipment and consultancy. Our philosophy is that no two organisational entities are alike, and that many interrelated factors such as the nature of their business, profile of their employees and the geographical range of their assets, uniquely determine their level of exposure, hence customised solutions are required to meet their needs. Whilst TYR Solutions operates predominately in high risk hostile environments for a number of media organisations, we have also deployed consultants on documentaries for health and safety purposes, to build jungle base camps, provide remote medical facilities and individual tracking and secure communications.

TYR Solutions has identified the need for medical/security awareness consultancy, communications and tracking support for documentary and wildlife production companies. We have a number of consultants with remote location and FGASA Field guides. Our consultants can also operate as logistics and base camp managers. TYR can also offer pre trip planning.

TYR Solutions can enhance communications through the sale or rental of satellite phones, Bgans and personal and vehicle tracking devices and can either monitor the tracking platform for the client or we can set the client with their own platform.

Our Mission Statement:

To provide superior solutions through customer training, consultancy and support in order to exceed our customer‚s expectations through continuous improvement and interaction.

I'll look forward to hearing from you.

Mike Linley has been producing and filming factual wildlife documentaries for over 30 years. Showing TV audiences all over the planet the wonders of the natural world has given him an immense amount of pleasure.

However, one thing that’s always concerned him is that the programmes he's made have only been viewable at home, on the TV, removed from the wild spaces of Britain.

But now new technology is changing this. Over the past year he has been working with interpretation specialists Ugly Studios to develop interactive touchscreen displays.

These screens enable his vast catalogue of digital video footage, photographs and wildlife facts to be viewed in situ, on a reserve, right there, where the wildlife can be seen. Not only is this fascinating for visitors, it is a useful tool for visitor centre staff to use; helping visitors identify the wild species they have seen and so learn more about them.
