One Minute Wonders
Mick Foley learned his trade at the BBC starting as a runner and working his way up to Producer/Director. He has worked for all the major terrestrial channels including the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5. Tales of the Unaccepted a series he worked on for ITV Central won a Royal Television Society Award and his short film ‘The Portwine Stain’ has won numerous awards at Film Festivals. He set up One Minute Wonders Video Production and Drone Services nearly ten years ago.
Mick started flying drones in 2018 gaining his PfCO (certificate to fly commercially) from the CAA in March 2019. He is passionate about flying and says, ‘Most of our shoots are planned, researched and pictures practically composed before we set off on location to film. If possible the site will have been surveyed beforehand for any obstacles either physical or logistical so that the flight can run as smoothly as possible. Our batteries give about 12 minutes of flying time so everything has to be thoroughly prepared to get the most out of the time in the air. But It doesn’t matter how much you plan once the drone is up the view is never quite how you imagined it would be – most of the time it’s better!
