Ascent Filmworks Q&A

Ascent Filmworks Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

I’m particularly passionate about cinematography in general but also have had a lifelong love for aviation and all kinds of aircraft. Creating that cinematic feel and look from the air using the amazing and sophisticated technology of drones is a great way to combine the two. I’ve flown and built remote control rotary wing aircraft for many years and really enjoy the technical side of them as well as my creative and artistic leanings. Being able to use both of these elements often regarded as opposites to complement one another really works well.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I founded Ascent Filmworks because I’ve always had a creative spark so to be able to make a living from something your passionate about is a dream for many but often not a reality for most i feel. I decided that this was an achievable goal if one is driven and determined enough to make it happen!

Why should our clients choose you?

I can be a bit of a perfectionist in my work which is something that always drives me to be the best i can be and deliver the best service and results possible. Because i really enjoy the process from both a technical and artistic perspective, I’m able to have a lot of enthusiasm for delivering a quality result weather its artistic cinematography or more technical mapping and waypoint flying.
