Ready to Fly...
1st Class!

Going where it's difficult to go. Capturing the big picture in a way that brings perspective, size and scope to elevate your message or bring a fresh sense of awareness to your communications.
Getting the "shot."
Over, under, around and through visually, whether it's from a bird's eye or at ground level.
Smooth moves.

Our visual “takes” are silky smooth. We are skilled in the practice of capturing compound moving footage. That is, we go beyond simple camera rises and falls or zoom ins and outs. We capture the "sweet spot" from every scene to create the most interest and convey maximum information while creating dramatic viewer involvement.

After the shoot...

What is to be done with your new aerial footage or photographs just recorded? How will you best utilize those visual assets? We provide turnkey creative post production services as required including video editing with visual graphic effects, titling and soundtrack with voice and music. We deliver finished, directly usable digital media appropriate for your purpose or application.
