Cineflex / Shotover Operator or custom camera rigs
In need of a Cineflex or Shotover operator?
At Kiwi Aerial shots we also provide professional aerial cinematography services from a helicopter. This can be needed when the shots have to be made at high altitudes, faster speed or on a location where drones are not allowed. Our professional camera operators can work with different camera setups to fit your production. This can be the Cineflex camera, the GSS system, our own gimbal system or even a “handheld” setup. We used all kinds of setups all over the world and even build custom rigs for next level 22K aerial cinematography that push the boundaries of aerial filming. Contact us if you want more information about our possibilities or to tell us your wishes so we can give you more information.
Helicopter cinematography setups
We offer multiple camera setups for making aerial shots from a helicopter. Which option is best totally depends on the needed shots, the location, and budget of the production. one of the cheaper options is to go for a handheld or gimbal setup with which we have to film sideways from the door opening. These options have some limitations as we can not film 90 degrees downwards because of the prop wash of the helicopter blades. The Cineflex or system doesn’t have this problem. The Cineflex system offers a complete free rotation of the camera in all directions making top-down shots at high speeds!
Helicopter cinematography productions
We have worked for all kinds of video productions all across the world. Commercials, full feature films, corporate videos, and TV series. We can arrange the whole helicopter production from A to Z and will discuss all the whishes and options with the production manager and or DoP. Check our portfolio items to see we have worked on helicopter productions from Fiji to Amsterdam.
