Aerial Marine Media provides worldwide cinematography, stills photography, aerial imagery, marine imagery and production support services.
Operating out of Malaysia, Aerial Marine Media founder Laurie K. Gilbert SoC, is an award winning Director of Photography with over 30 years experience, shooting dynamic motion picture imagery in more than fifty countries, in continents across the globe.
Recently, a short film was made of an offshore aerial filming and photography commission, which Laurie undertook for Maersk Drilling. The film effectively demonstrates the experience of circling a ship in the middle of the Malacca Straits in a helicopter, as Laurie shoots from handheld cameras with gyroscopic balance to offset the vibrations of the aircraft.

Laurie is highly experienced in creative cinematography for feature films, commercials, documentaries, television drama and corporate communications.

Producer and educator Ross Tinney, recently interviewed Laurie for his book “My POV”, a guide for incipient filmmakers in the practical aspects of developing a career in film production. My POV is available as an eBook and paperback on Amazon.
Laurie has effectively utilised online and social media from the earliest days of the world wide web to promote his services. Read more insight in his online booklet.
