A continuing series to get to know your Southeast Creative Summit Presenters. In this episode: Yonder Blue Films!

How did you get into aerial photography and cinematography?

We were both working as producers and editors on a show that aired on NBC sports. During its ninth and final season, we decided it was time to get out of the office more. We then launched a production company with low-altitude aerial cinematography as our specialty. That was about a year and a half ago. Recently we’ve shot for Nat Geo, USA Network, and Cartoon Network. It’s been a ton of work, but it is a fun way to film unique footage.

How do the principles of cinematography differ (or not) when you’re flying in the air?

There are a lot of similarities. Light and camera movement are the two most important principles. We’ll talk more about that at the summit. We mostly shoot with wide lenses, but with recent advances in technology, telephoto lenses will be an option.

Is aerial cinematography something a production company can add to their arsenal?

It is certainly possible, but it is far more difficult than it seems at first glance. It’s far more expensive too. It also requires a major time commitment, even if you have a background in RC aircraft. There are companies that are producing rigs that allow you to fly a GoPro a bit easier, but these rigs can make things deceptively easy. All that being said, if you’re interested in adding this to your production arsenal, we say, “Go for it!” We’ve helped many production companies get started.

What’s the best advice you’ve been given during your career?

There are old pilots and bold pilots, but there are no old and bold pilots.

What can people expect from you at the Southeast Creative Summit?

We’ll discuss the basics of RC technology for aerial video. Since this is a less common way to film, we will educate attendees on how best to incorporate this camera platform into their productions. We’ll share a few tricks of the trade too. Hopefully we will have enough room to do a short flight demo as well. We’re looking forward to it!

Professional Video Editor, Producer, Creative Director, Director since 1990.

Credits include multiple Emmys, Tellys, Aurora and CableAce Awards.

Creative Director for Georgia-Pacific and GP Studios, Atlanta. Former Owner / Operator of Biscardi Creative Media. The show you knew us best for was "Good Eats" on the Food Network. I developed the HD Post workflow and we also created all the animations for the series.

Favorite pastime is cooking with pizza on the grill one of my specialties. Each Christmas Eve we serve the Feast of the Seven Fishes, a traditional Italian seafood meal with approx. 30 items on the menu.

If I wasn't in video production I would either own a restaurant or a movie theater.
