Aerial Cinematography in HK Learn from 3-Time Emmy Winner


We’re privileged to tell you about a unique opportunity to learn aerial cinematography with Helicopters HK and three time Emmy award winner, Steve Howell. He’s the man behind film stealing scenes in XXX and Terminator so you’re working with a pro. And someone who likes to blow stuff up - a lot of stuff.

From the camera system to the operator, this type of programme has never been run before in Hong Kong and may never be run again. You’ll be using the gear they actually use in Hollywood and fly around in a Robinson R44 helicopter. The course, meanwhile, spans eight lessons and you’ll learn everything from equipment mechanics to tracking and zooming on a moving object. Judging by most of the photos you see from safari holidays, it might take more than eight lessons but there’s always hope.

They’ll run up to three programmes in December and unless you have the luxury of being wealthy as well as unemployed, you should opt for the night sessions from Monday – Friday. The dates are yet to be confirmed (they’ll be arranged according to demand) and it’s priced at HK$15,000 per person. That includes your 30 minutes of flight time one on one with Steve as well as a DVD of your footage. Who knows what you’ll record – everything from the Hong Kong landscape to wetting yourself as you bank too steeply to the right - but if you quote this special NecesCity code when you book, Heli888, you’ll be guaranteed a space.

Home videos and then some.
