"RC Aerial cinematography is gaining rapid popularity. The important thing to remember when choosing your aerial crew is (1) the team's safety record, (2) expert camera skills and experience, (3) pilot and flight skills. Pilot skills are crucial but alone are of limited use on this visual-centric plain. A well seasoned DP/gimbal operator, can interpret, choreograph, and create your vision, well beyond the ordinary. Our award winning team can elevate your expectations."
We have been in the industry since 1984.
