Planning and Getting the Best from your Aerial Filming Budget

Production Planning

Aeroptics can help you plan every detail of your aerial filming project – to save both time and money.

We’ll work with you to determine what recording formats will be used and we’ll help to co-ordinate production work-flow so that you won’t risk missing that all important once-only shot.

Helping Us Help You

The more we know about a job, the more we can contribute to both the creative outcome and the management of your budget – big or small.

Helicopter time can be carefully coordinated so that we can make the best of good weather and shoot in multiple locations in one day. We are your partners in every aspect of each production.

Aeroptics can independently source the best local filming pilots and film helicopters – or work with your preferred partners.

Making Every Assignment Affordable

Aeroptics is comfortable working anywhere in the world from local jobs in New Zealand to equatorial jungles and polar icecaps – around seventy different countries so far !

Our equipment can be transported worldwide by Aeroptics as accompanied airline excess baggage.
