SPECIALISED OPERATIONS

MOTION PICTURE FILMING

The majority of aerial footage seen in cinemas and television is filmed from helicopters.

Gold Coast Helitours has a long history associated with motion film photography and therefore our crew has a complete understanding of the needs of the camera man and director alike.

 

We use state-of-the-art camera systems which can be mounted outside of the helicopter such as the Cineflex, Shotover (K1 and F1) and GSS gimbal platforms all mainstays of the movie world, so be it for cinema, television or corporate footage, the flexibility and agility of our helicopters delivers an aerial perspective like no other aircraft can. 

 

Couple this knowledge with the skills of our pilots and the high-performance of our helicopters ensures

Gold Coast Helitours can get you the shots you need.
