BERND SPRANK

Moviekopter® operator, post-producer, composer, and technology expert

Bernd Sprank is one who builds bridges. Between art and technology. Between image and sound. Between visual, mechanical, and digital. But there is something that runs all the way through him: the striving for perfection, for that something special, for the harmonious composition. He has found in the “Flying Cameras” the perfect tool for this. Everyday occurrences become spectacular. Familiar things are given an unusual perspective. Sound meets image. Skilled in film, photo, and model making, sensitivity and dexterity: He makes your ideas take off.

HORST PIERDOLLA

Heli-Pilot

As flexible as the Moviekopter® is – there are projects that cannot be filmed or photographed with a drone. So if you should need a helicopter, then Horst Pierdolla will take to the air for you. The licensed helicopter pilot and trained advertising specialist knows his Robinson and the sky like the back of his hand – your guarantee that your shoot doesn’t dissolve into thin air.

GOTTFRIED PÖNNIGHAUS

Photography, aerial vehicle and vintage model flights

A trained eye, a sense for the right moment, and a lot of instinct when piloting an aerial vehicle  – with these attributes, Gottfried Pönnighaus provides the perfect setting for every motif. Whether landscapes, people like you and me, celebrities, or animals  – this experienced photographer and pilot has taken thousands of shots and at least as many flight kilometres: the best requirements for your aerial shootings as well.
