WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT SKYHOOK

Orange Films

I had the privilege of working with SKYHOOK on an Arcade Fire video and what an amazing experience it was. They are highly skilled in the air but equally importantly have an excellent grip on the safety and legal elements required in commercial drone filming. They are
also all round nice guys and a pleasure to work with. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for any aerial work.

Jon Day
Producer

 

Fixerfilm
Having worked with Skyhook on many jobs from the cliffs of Norway and Switzerland (Birdman Racing TV series) to the ditches and beaches of the Western Cape. Their professionalism and skill ensure they are my number one choice in drone operators.

NN Webster
Producer

Peoples Television, Inc.
SKYHOOK’s aerial camera work shows the kind of confidence you can only get from thousands of flights over years of practice and dedication. They have an eye for dynamic camera movement and innovative perspectives in a wide range of flight conditions.

A team composed of pilots, cinematographers and engineers ensures a deep understanding of their equipment, reassuring, especially while traveling in remote locations with no access to replacement parts.

Skyhook will not stop until the client and their own high expectations are met. Skyhook’s aerial work would be an asset to any production and I look forward to working with them again in the future.
