About Us

Founded by Ron Chapple and Rebecca Giblin, Aerial Filmworks is the result of Ron’s 20+ years shooting aerial images and the Cineflex gyro-stabilized technology. Aerial Filmworks owns and operates gyro-stabilized Cineflex camera systems for entertainment, advertising and corporate clients. We have extensive helicopter filming experience, full-time Cineflex camera operators, tech support and over 25 years of location work. In addition, we offer both the Eclipse and Shotover aerial platforms to accommodate an even wider range of camera and lens packages.
