T-Mobile & Samsung Galaxy S9 set Guinness World Records


drone photography


Just released our T-Mobile commercial featuring much of our aerial cinematography work using DJI Inspire 2 Drone Zenmuse X7 Super 35mm camera. Working closly with T-Mobile we teamed up with Guinness World Records to launch the Galaxy S9 & S9+ with an EPIC speed test, breaking two world records in the process. Seen in this new video with some epic drone video footage including fastest text on a touchscreen mobile phone while water skiing! To celebrate the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ tomorrow, T-Mobile decided to pull one of its unnecessarily over-the-top stunts to demonstrate…something. The company decided it would be a good idea to tow a waterskiier behind a blimp, and set two Guinness World Records while they were doing it, just for good measure.

Originally we were asked to cature aerial cinematography of a classic warbird P51 Mustang for promotional game WAR WINGS. The only option to flim a 300mph airplane in the air was to used a R44 Helicopter with a CineFlex camera gimbal. War Wings is a video game app inspired by real pilots' combat experience during the second World War. See the promotional video War Wings Prank! This flight instructor had no idea this was coming! What's one way to prank a flight instructor? Send them up in the air with someone who has absolutely no skill in flying. That's what instructor Tom thought he was dealing with when he took former fashion model Nadia Marcinko up in a plane. Nadia disguised herself as a "nerd" who had no clue about flying. Little did Tom know, Nadia is now a certified airline transport pilot, aerobatic pilot and flight instructor. Catch some our amazing air to air aerial tracking shots on War Wings Prank

aerial cinematographer

The Weather Channel, "Strangest Weather on Earth" Season 3 Episode #306 Noisy Nature. Traveling to Bohol province of the Philippines we captured this amazing place of unusual land formations they call Chocolate Hills. There are at least 1,200 hills made of limestone. Shaped like hershey kisses there may be as many as 1,700 spread over an area of more than 20 square miles. The unique land was formed ages ago by the uplift of coral deposits and the action of rain water and erosion. The grassy hills were once coral reefs that erupted from the sea in a massive geologic shift. Wind and water put on the finishing touches over hundreds of thousands of years. Check out Skyecam's aerial cinematography of the Chocolate Hills featured by Pioneer Productions.
