Soaring Cinema was created in 2014, specializing in creative, dynamic camera movement. We pride ourselves in delivering beautiful imagery with a creative and thoughtful approach each and every time.  Our team consists of creative minded and talented remote camera operators and FAA-licensed drone pilots.   Each one of our freelance operators and pilots has experience in the industry and on set.  We are always able to blend in well with any production and we come prepared for anything.  We have a stable of drones and equipment ready to accommodate all projects both large and small.

In addition to working as a camera operator, I've spent more than 15 years in the grip department specializing in camera movement on projects ranging from IMAX films and 35mm commercials to television series and documentaries.  Collaborating with some of the top Directors and Cinematographers in the business has taught me the value of camera movement and placement in telling unique stories.  Because of this, I was drawn to the expanding possibilities created by the latest drone technology.  I co-founded my first drone company in 2012 and have been enjoying expanding my repertoire of camera movement ever since.

I broke into the film and television industry in 2008 working in the production departments of CNN, Turner Sports and Turner Studios.  After seeing the aerial and drone industry begin to grow, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. In 2014, I trained in aerial camera movement and aerial flight.  It did not take long for me to find my passion for aerial imagery.   I really enjoy the creative aspect involved in delivering eye-catching imagery from an entirely different perspective.
