About Us

I'm Steve Marchiarullo - a 30' Jimmy Jib Triangle owner/op, FAA Licensed Remote Pilot, and freelance shooter based in the NJ/NY area. I have been lucky enough to shoot all kinds of live events ranging from broadcast sports, to concerts, large scale corporate productions, and even community cultural shows. When it comes to jibs and camera cranes my goal is to provide clients with excellent service whether it be with pristine skills, creativity, communication, or preparation. I stick with clients every step of the way to help make sure productions run like clockwork.

Past clients have included Pearson, TD Bank, Declan Weir Productions, The Philly Cycling Classic, Rutgers University, Stevens Institute of Technology, UPENN, VER, Time Warner, GoFightLive, InfoQ, ClojureCon, TEDx, Laff Mob, Microsoft, and have had work on various networks! My extensive production experience involving jibs, crew shooting, story telling, audio engineering and team player attitude lend well to any production regardless of defined roles.

I hold an FAA Remote Pilot License and can 100% legally operate as a commercial drone pilot in United Sates airspace. I have the knowledge base and experience to ensure productions are done in compliance with FAA regulations, can communicate with the FAA for airspace authorizations/flight waivers, and supply full support crew. My drones are Phantom 4 PRO and Phantom 3 Pro 4k units, have 6 batteries, ND filters, and can be rotated on charges.
