Camera Jib & Aerial Imaging
For Film & Television, Commercial and Industy
What's on Offer
David Oliver specialises in Jimmy Jib crane and UAV aerial operation. He has over thirty years of experience in film and television production, encompassing a wide range of production styles and camera techniques. Through David Oliver Media Limited he offers a first-class professional service tailored to the requirements of your production. Based in Suffolk, the company operates country-wide and overseas
Services are based around the Jimmy Triangle and Triangle Pro cranes. It is standard practice to supply an approved jib assistant with all projects. This ensures the safest and most productive operating environment. A focus puller is recommended for high definition and film projects. All additional personnel can be supplied.
David also has considerable experience with a variety of other systems including Techno-Crane, Swiss Jib, Scanner, Polecam and remote head systems, including gyro-stabilised heads and pressure-sensitive joystick controllers.
Jibs may be hired, short or long term, for your own use while supported by one of our jib assistants. This is subject to approval – please contact us.
David Oliver Media has a zero-harm policy and safety is a primary consideration. All projects are subject to prior safety assessment. Electrical equipment is tested and jib kit is LOLER certified. Operations are covered with at least £5 million of public liability insurance.
Jib and UAV Facilities
Flexible & complimentary assets.
We can supply both facilities, providing extensive possibilities for creative shooting
An Unmanned Aircraft System (UAV, drone etc.) captures events from a unique perspective that otherwise would be expensive, time consuming and logistically complicated. If you simply need great GVs to accompany jib work, this can be achieved economically.
UAV systems are ideal tools for television production and photography in general. There are many other areas of application for this rapidly advancing technology: high-resolution mapping, 3D modelling and surveying.
Flight operations are usually performed as a two-person team – aircraft pilot and assistant. In some circumstances it is possible to operate as pilot only. UAS can be flown only at certain locations and in acceptable conditions – airspace classification and weather conditions are primary factors. All projects are assessed individually.
We are currently using the DJI Phantom 4 Pro quad-copter and are very pleased with the quality of imagery attained.
David Oliver Media is fully qualified to offer UAS services for commercial purposes in the UK and all flight operations are compliant with current CAA regulations. We are insured with up to £10 million of public liability for UAS operations. Safety is, as always, first and foremost.
