Rolls Royce Air Production


Aerial cinematography is a service Matthew and Company provides in conjunction with our affiliate, HDaerial. We provide two different types of aerial cinematography. The first is a high altitude manned helicopter using gyro stabilized camera systems like Cineflex, Gyron & Tyler. The second is a gyro stabilized low altitude unmanned Octocopter or eight bladed UAV/Drone. This production tool will provide a perspective you were unable to obtain before.

Manned Helicopter

HDaerial, Inc. has been providing breathtaking aerial cinematography for feature films, commercials, corporate videos, reality TV and documentaries for over twenty years. Our aerial cinematography expertise brings a level of confidence to each project that can be trusted. Matthew Trub, Aerial Cinematographer / Coordinator for HDaerial is a trained operator/technician for the Cineflex Camera Systems, which includes Cineflex Elite Arri Alexa and the Cineflex Ultra RED Epic, Gyron Camera Systems, and Tyler Camera Systems.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

HDaerial has recently expanded into the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle/UAV arena with an 8 rotor Octocopter Heavy Lift. This UAV/drone is capable of carrying a 25 pound payload which allows us to carry the RED 6k Dragon, RED Weapon, Arri Alexa Mini and the Canon C500 for 2k, 4k and 6k work as well as smaller cameras like the Panasonic GH4 and Canon 5D Mark III. Our camera operators have full focus control.

Matthew Trub is our UAV/drone camera operator and Richard Trub is our UAV/drone operator. Our crews have shot everything from music videos, car commercials, whaling documentaries, marketing, feature films, and reality television. On our Home page and Aerial Photography you will find stunning aerial filming by our UAV/drone team.
