We operate a 3 man crew as standard. Pilot, Camera Gimbal Operator and Operation assistant. Our pilot is Roger Laxon an experienced cameraman in the UK. Roger has worked on a variety of productions over the years and knows what directors are looking for when it comes to getting the images needed. He has worked with sound recordist James Baker for many years and he takes up the senior Camera Gimbal Operator role. They have a great understanding of the safety and ability of the aerial system. An added bonus of this team is they are able to shoot everything needed on the ground as a documentary crew and also cover all the aerial work. This is useful when traveling or when a small amount of aerial work is required.
