Our European branch is mainly focusing on Aerial Cinematography with Drones. Our Aruban Branch experienced a significant expansion after the opening of The Ritz Carlton Aruba (Nov. 2013) since we where voted as the contracted vendor for all Photography / Cinematography.
Besides tourism aimed clients we are also doing projects for the biggest local banks / Telecom providers / Oil companies and food, drinks & liqueur distributors. With a four-person team (between the ages of 20 – 35) and occasionally freelancers, we are a young dynamic company.
