who we work with

​​Ascent Media takes to underwater work like a shark to surfers. Their gear works extremely well and comes with all the bells and whistles you need for a navy seal operation. The ability to communicate from above to below surface adds extra control and reduces time splashing around in the shallow end.

Cesar Salmeron - Director

Considerate, constructive and responsive from start to finish. The team at Ascent Media instinctively understood the message I was hoping to convey, used their top-quality equipment and skills to quickly deliver a beautiful punchy video. I highly recommend Ascent Media for all your production needs - prepare to be impressed.

Katherine Copsey - The Greens

We have engaged Ascent Media to work on a number of projects for AusNet Services. This included; drone photography and videography, film editing, professional portrait photography, and much more. Without exception I have found all facets of their service to be of the absolute highest quality.
