We specialize in high-end production solutions combining aerial video and photography with custom 2D/3D visualization.
High-end photography and video is at the heart of everything we do. Using small, unmanned aerial vehicles (sUAVs) equipped with 4K cameras, we offer complete production services from aerial filming and photography to editing and post production.
Shutter Pilots was the first company in the nation to be awarded an FAA 333 exemption to pair aerial imagery with 3D visualization. These cutting edge technologies can be used to recreate the past or bring the future to life.
Our first client was National Geographic. What an amazing and memorable way to start a business! The day of the shoot began well before the break of dawn. A dense layer of fog rested atop the waterways as the sun crested the horizon. It was a picture-perfect morning.
We worked diligently with the NatGeo producer and cinematographer to map out each and every shot. The “bird’s eye” footage was ultimately used to produce a series of television commercials to promote a documentary showcasing the Prairie Pothole region of the Great Plains.
We are FAA approved to fly drones to capture aerial imagery for commercial purposes. Our pilots follow the FAA’s Airman Certification Standard (ACS) for small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS). They have successfully completed testing to receive Remote Pilot Certificates with the sUAS rating. Our pilots are also active members of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), the nation's leader in remote pilot education and safety standards.
