senior creative producer
“We worked with Big Bird in Northern Zambia. From the get go the team were fantastic. They captured fantastic material, and were very professional in their briefings, especially with the communities we were working with, who had not been exposed to drones before. They offered creative suggestions in addition to what we needed to capture, which have turned added a little extra dimension to our film. Not only are they a great camera team, but they are also a pleasure to work with. We were working in a very remote and challenging environment, but they maintained a positive attitude and just got stuck in. They adapted to unique challenges of the job with ease, and they instantly became valuable members of the team. They also dealt with the client, community members, and government officials with the same professional grace. I can’t recommend them enough.”
