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.

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.

Digital Tsunami has designed and developed multiple websites for Laurie’s Hong Kong and Malaysian companies.
From Our Clients
Andrew has provided Merrell Associates with reliable service, bringing a vast wealth of knowledge in IT to the task for more than the eight years I have been working here.
We have been helped by Andrew to solve all sorts of problems and if there isn't an immediate fix, solutions are found pretty quickly.
Our take-away menu advertised TamarindThai.com.au, even though the site didn’t exist.
Digital Tsunami offered great ideas and design to set up a professional website that matches our name, ideas and style of the restaurant.
Andrew is very knowledgeable IT professional and he never hesitated to see and consult us in the restaurant.
Digital Tsunami was professional, responsive and accurately interpreted our brief. The final result was a new website that was in keeping with the iBurst brand essence and proposition.
I worked with Andrew on a photography project that involved a high level of visual complexity for a multinational client. Andrew was clear and professional in his briefing, but at the same time, was open to other ideas and approaches.
Thank you for the development of an updated brand image for Wah Yuet in China.
While originally contracted to produce a video highlighting Wah Yuet's manufacturing capabilities, it was apparent very quickly that your understanding of our requirements, combined with your experience, were the perfect fit to create a new logo and style guidelines for the company. While relatively small in scope, you were dedicated to the success of the project and I am pleased to say that you hit the bullseye!
