Helicopter Aerial Filming the Bachelor TV Series

Location and date

Monaco, Monte Carlo & France, 2012


To film a number properties within Monaco and the surrounding area, to be used throughout the course of the show.


The Bachelor, Ukraine was set in and around Nice and Monaco. Our task was to film a number of key locations – primarily properties, to be used throughout the course of the show. Taking off from Monaco heliport is a breathtaking and unforgettable experience, as the airport is so small and narrow, the aircraft have to take off backwards!

After taking off, we flew to a key location with talent waiting – a bridge with bungee jumping activity. Our goal was to film smooth 360° flights around each location, and to allow them to be ramped in post-production. The director was extremely happy with the results and complimented us on capturing some additional footage of an aircraft landing at Nice airport, which we were assured would also make the final cut.
