LA Media’s drone team comes with a production background that spans 25 years. Our flight director, Justin Adams heads up the team. His BBC background as a senior producer and director across a vast array of network programming provides an excellent grounding in every type of production situation.
Our drone pilot, John Banks is not just a pilot. His creative abilities flying our drones ensures that the shots achieved are exceptional. John’s passion for cameras and filming really inspires his flying – constantly pushing the creative boundaries of possibility with the shots. Along with this he brings his vast experience in all things remote control – a life time spent building all kinds of electronic ROV’s, we’ve seen him soldering tiny microchips in the field. He is part drone!
Over the past 4 years the team has racked up hundreds of flying hours and have been involved in every type of production including feature films, commercials, music promos and broadcast TV. Our production credits include Chanel, Haig Club, Volvo, Renault, Ford, General Electric, O2 and Omega to name but a few and we’ve worked with big industry names in terms of directors, DOPs and producers.
