Helicopter Aerial filming

Professional Aerials with a Cineflex or Gimball setup


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.

Helicopter shots in 22K resolution

You can contact us for the most extreme out of the box helicopter cinematography requests. In our workshop in Amsterdam we work on a daily base on gruondbreaking projects for all kind of shoots. In 2019 we build a helicopter rig for three RED Monstros to get a 310-degrees view in 22K. Let us know when you have a crazy project in mind for which you need technical filmmakers like us.

Commercials & Films

In the last 10 years, we filmed some crazy productions for full feature films and television commercials like this gigantic 40m Mc menu for McDonald's.


Filming above the North sea or any other big open water requires extra planning for the crew and helicopter itself. We can arrange this all as we have lots of experience filming offshore with our helicopters and cameras.


We can pick up helicopter cinematography production from A to Z. let us know what your wishes are so we can tell you our options.
