With over a decade of aerial experience Sherpas Cinema provides state of the art stabilized HD-8K aerial footage using Shotover, Cineflex, Drone, and Eclipse systems. From insurance, permitting, operators, aerial directors, technicians, pilots, communications, ground crew, cast, to choreography we have you covered.
We are fascinated by how cameras can show us reality that our eyes cannot detect. We specialize in time-lapse and ultra slow motion, but also hyper-micro and macro cinematography. Watch the seasons change through summer fall and winter, behold microscopic beads of wax bouncing off a ski, or marvel at the intricate architecture of a 2mm across snowflake seen full screen. Modern technology is constantly opening more doors into this magnificent realm, and we take great pride in constantly staying at the cutting edge.
Sherpas Cinema is continuing the tradition of world-class storytelling in emerging mediums. We now produce 8K 3D VR/360° content for high-end cinematic, commercial, and interactive virtual reality experiences alongside a comprehensive post-production workflow.
