Evocative aerial cinematography videoJuly 2, 2014
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.
