"Great team who were a pleasure to work with. Very accommodating when the weather didn't turn out as we had expected. And fantastic footage! I will definitely be using them again" Claire Jackson - Director, BBC
"Just wanted to write to say huge thank you for all your tremendous work last weekend. You were both so helpful and creative and really went the extra mile to make it all happen. Couldn't have a better team to tramp the countryside looking for great shots. And we got top class footage that has really lifted the programme. Well done guys. Will definitely be asking to get you back on the next project" Helen Hill - Director, ITV
"We hired Aerial Republic on an incredibly difficult shoot to film illegal street racing as it happened on public roads. There were extensive risks, variables, and obstacles to make it happen and they were not only thorough, diligent and attentive, but also took a creative and highly engaged approach in making sure the shot was slick & stylish. They have a real passion to their work and its shows in their remarkable footage. A pleasure to work with and highly recommended." James Ross - Producer / Director, Century Films
"We’ve worked with Aerial Republic as far back as 2008. They've undertaken multiple high profile campaigns for our clients throughout the Middle East and Asia. Thoroughly professional and very creative team that totally leave us at ease even when liaising directly with our clients. We couldn't speak highly enough of them and are continuing to work with them throughout 2015." Andrew Macgregor - Managing Director, Citrus Media
"It's been a pleasure to work with Aerial Republic. They have a passion to capture the perfect shot with breath taking results, even in the most remote locations. We've filmed a number of projects with them now, including a nine day shoot across Britain. Everyday we were kept up to date and in the loop with progress reports. They make aerial videography look simple but it's far from that." Billy Burgoyne - Creative Director, Epiphany
"I came to Olly at Aerial Republic as I was making a new series for BBC2. We were making a five part ob doc which included a 5 minute performance at the end of each episode. The five minute performance needed to be a continual shot tracking backwards with more and more people joining a dance routine which would snake through the streets of a town.
We wanted the perfomance to be one continual unedited shot. Something which had not been done before in this type of way. I called Olly.

Alex Sunderland
"Aerial Republic offered us a very reliable, trouble free drone service on our action feature film and they typically got the shot in one take. Wouldn't hesitate to use again."

WE TAKE FILM
TO NEW HEIGHTS

We do not believe that any one style, piece of equipment, workflow, or technical approach is an adequate “one-serves-all” solution when it comes to the art and craft of aerial videography.

We believe in helping our clients get their message across in the best ways we can imagine. This means doing whatever the story calls for, with whatever technology it needs.

Our work spans multiple industries, from documentary filmmaking right through to land and building surveying.
