Teamwork between pilot and cameraman is crucial to the success of aerial filming and using a cameraman who specialise in aerial work, teamed with a pilot he know and trust who can smoothly put the helicopter in the right place at the right time,the shoot will be successfull and will save time and money .For us,the pilot is; in effect a highly skilled aerial grip! ie a member of the camera crew.
