Creative, considered aerial action with safety embedded and a ticket to fly! From sporting events to music festivals and film shoots, if you need a birds-eye view, we’ve got you covered.
With years of experience, our drones and Cable Cam can shoot everywhere including over crowds, inside buildings and even in no flight-zones. We can also help you get the permission your need to fly in National Parks, public spaces and on private property.
Our pilots are licensed to fly up to 25kg drones (otherwise known as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) and our spotters and assistants are trained in CASA regulations.
Safety is paramount. We are fully prepared for every location: we bring safety cones, a helipad, UHF and VHF radios, high vis vests and signage.
We have $20 Million Public Liability Insurance and ensure all relevant permits and permissions are in effect prior to take-off.
Get in touch if you have any questions or want to discuss a project.
When it’s not suitable to use a drone, we can still shoot overhead with Cable Cam – perfect for sporting events, festivals and film shoots. It can be installed in mere minutes and we can run the cable across a 200m span meaning we can fly inside buildings and over people to get that exact shot time and time again.
We can shoot on either our Canon C200, Canon R5 or a camera of your choice.
The Cable Cam allows us to fly from point to point at up to 50kms per hour with wireless control, wireless follow focus and wireless video transmission. It provides the same degree of control as a camera on a fluid head tripod or Point-Of-View camera.
Our friends at Trace Cable Cam do the rigging and supply the Defy Cadence cable cam sled. Their qualified riggers can have this installed in mere minutes where other systems can take hours or even days to set up.
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.
