The drone space has become extremely crowded, but there is a difference. What sets us apart is true expertise, battle-tested equipment and a commitment to making safety paramount. We have extensive drone filming experience on many types of productions from studio feature films, national spots, music videos, high end corporate projects, documentaries and action sports features. Ive been a RC helicopter pilot since 1982 and have flown drones on set since 2010. My proficiency and skills allow me to safely operate our machines with great precision and without GPS. Im able to position the drone and execute complex moves with confidence and authority, both indoors and out, over water, in confined areas or through rugged terrain. No matter what the environment, Im always mindful of our surroundings and ensure that all flight paths keep everyone and everything safe at all times. Directors and AD’s appreciate that we are always ready to go on demand. Producers love our efficiency and the peace of mind we provide. Every facet of our operation is geared around trust, competence and the desire to be intensely reliable and consistent. Our camera operators are aerial DPs, understand light and are masters at operating remote heads. Their passion is working closely with directors to fulfill their vision and capture unique shots previously thought unimaginable. Our carefully maintained drones are proven, robust platforms that can withstand heavy duty use in locations and climates all over the world. We fly both Freefly Systems Movi Pro and DJI Zenmuse X7 gimbals which offer unparalleled shot stability and a 360° unobstructed views. Our partnerships within the industry allow us access to specialized equipment and software not available commercially. Our customized mounts allow us to get stable shots at longer focal lengths in challenging conditions and high winds. We utilize long range, HiDef, wireless video downlinks for feeding a director monitor and video village via HD-SDI. We are totally self contained and can work as a second or independent splinter unit to maximize productivity. We often work in conjunction with VFX personnel to ensure shots come together seamlessly. We help with all phases of pre-production including concept and pre-vis review, what to look for on scouts, airspace review, insurance, permitting, FAA POA, DOA & NOTAM paperwork, arranging travel, shipping gear and carnets.
