Our Office location? – Anywhere you are.
We launch from wherever the action is, seriously. We’re based in Los Angeles, but have traveled to Jamaica, Mexico, the British Virgin Islands, Tortola, New York, New Mexico, North Carolina, etc.
From the top of a 7000 foot cliff in MOAB Utah accessible only by aggressive off-road vehicles, to half way across the world, or just here is Hollywood, we’ll be there.
Aerial West is extremely mobile, and our specialty is getting to difficult locations.
We’ve outfitted our company vehicle with everything you need to drive to where you are. There’s a full charging station in back, 2 drone bays to allow for a backup drone on site, constant charging of 5 batteries at a time, so simply put, we keep filming no matter what.
This is a shot of our company vehicle at the top of that 7000 foot cliff we mentioned earlier. We can simply pop the back open, and have a bird in the air in minutes, shooting 4k video, landscape photography, or provide a live HD feed to a nearby DIT cart or IP feed.
We believe flexibility is key!
