COVID-19 MESSAGE: We are staying safe during the coronavirus pause, following all health precautions to prevent the spread of the virus. We hope you are staying safe and healthy as well.
We are now working again; we are ready to capture scenes for projects that don't require large crews, and scenics and establishing shots. Since we mostly work outdoors, it is quite possible for us to work safely with proper distancing protocol. We're ready when you are, and we will work safely as always. In the meantime, stay safe !
With drone technology we can make cinematic shots which were impossible only a few years ago.

In spring of 2019 we captured aerials for a concert event in Aspen, CO, and several documentary films in the New York region. In fall 2019, we conducted drone operations for a Netflix feature film in the Hudson Valley, NY, an extremely challenging assignment, flying over the Hudson River and Long Island Sound; on day 2 we coordinated with the special effects department and flew over artificial wind and rain. In February 2020, we conducted a night operation for an A&E non-fiction show. We are a Netflix approved drone vendor and aerial team.
Our decades of filmmaking experience make us ideal partners to enhance your production. Excellent preparation is what sets us apart: we will attend pre-production meetings, advise you about the operation, and obtain necessary FAA Flight Authorizations. We can work on-set with your director and DP, or as an independent aerial unit. As veteran cinematographers, we are great collaborators to help producers create their stories.
