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.


We mostly work with a RED Dragon camera in our Cineflex for helicopter cinematography in the Netherlands. If you please another camera in the Cineflex system, no problem!


With our helicopter gimball setup, we can make smooth aerial shots with lenses up to 90mm. we can deliver 4K DNG RAW footage in for example Prores4444.


At Kiwi Aerial Shots we also build custom camera rigs for underneath a helicopter. in 2019 we build a custom helicopter rig for 3 RED Monstro's giving us 22K footage!

Extreme helicopter productions

We have years of experience in all sorts of helicopter productions and love to brainstorm about how to realize your most extreme helicopter production!

Helicopter photography

Next to the helicopter cinematography service, we can also provide helicopter photography with some of the best Dutch photographers.

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.

  • Today we had a drone shoot in the city center of Rotterdam. Because of Rotterdam Airport, flying a drone in this airspace requires special certificates and permits for both us as a drone company, the pilot and the drone itself. Next to that we have to work wit a so called radio transmission operator, an RT. This operator is in direct contact with the tower of Rotterdam airport to get permission for take off. But if you have all the right certifications and airspace knowledge like we do, you can make drone footage in spots like these! . . . . #kiwiaerialshots #CTRRotterdam #droneshots #Rotterdam #010 #ROC #RT #RPAL #dronecertificates #drones #kiwi

  • 2019 was a big year for Kiwi with lots of big drone and helicopter productions and internally we made some big steps with new gear, new employees and new drone, and company licences. From what we can see now, 2020 will not be any different. With an upcoming new office and a brand new Kiwi van, we have a solid base to focus on even bigger and more challenging projects. Bigger than a custom made 24K helicopter rig? Bigger than a 1800W moving LED drone lighting system?  Why not! Challenge us, we are here to realise your unrestricted aerial cinematography requests!!! . . . . #kiwiaerialshots #2020 #newyear #newprojects #cinematography #aerialshots #droneproductions #drones #ArriAlexa #REDcamera #helicopterproductions #custompeoductions #aerialcinematography #challenges #videoproduction #kiwi
  • Last year we we're filming an insane Dutch tradition for National Geographic. The construction of two gigantic, new years eve bonfires. These shots were part of the latest 'Europe from above' series of NatGeo for which we filmed most of the Dutch episode. As these 48 meters high bonfires got out of control, last year was probably the last time they were allowed and so this tradition is over. Good thing we were there to document it for National Geographic. . . . #kiwiaerialshots #nationalgeographic #scheveningen #bonfire #vreugdevuur #tradition #tvs #drones #netherlands #europefromabove #kiwi
