OUR CLIENTS SAY IT BEST
We had a great experience working with AMK Films on our TV show. Aaron has a great attitude and will do whatever it takes to get the shot. He is a very talented operator and cinematographer as well as an expert on all applicable laws and regulations. He’s always willing to go above and beyond to assist with permitting. His night certification is a huge bonus as well! Book with confidence in a job done right.
– Seph Ternes – Producer – Selling Sunset – Netflix
Aaron and his team were as professional and thorough as they were easy to work with. Unlike other crews they knew when to follow direction and when to take over the driver’s seat when necessary to provide the most value they could for our shoot. They made it fun while keeping everything safe and within regulation, which led to outstanding results. Would hire them again in a heartbeat. Highly recommend!
– Jeremy Heslup – Director – Valkyr Productions – Czinger
Very professional team. Worked well with ambiguity and delivered project results exceeding expectations. We learned a lot from the AMK team and enjoyed their flexibility and friendly interactions. We will definitely use them again.
– Peter Avery – Creative Director – Willard Marine
Top notch skills and delivers great footage.
– Rupert Smith – Producer / Director – Truck Night in America
Aaron has been phenomenal to work with, and I can’t begin to describe all of the fantastic work he’s accomplished for my team. Aaron truly understands how to take a vision and bring it to life. Aaron also has a great team, who are also super easy to work with and down to earth. If your company needs video production work, I would recommend you to choose Aaron and his team. His easy-going personality, in addition to his detailed-oriented work ethic, is a no brainer when it comes to choosing a cinematographer!
– Anne Lin – Director of Marketing – Nebulaworks
We recently hired AMK to give our daytime network show some higher production value. The custom footage Aaron shot in San Diego for us was amazing, he knew how to get exactly what we needed, (and he had much better suggestions than what we started with!) What we got was Helicopter-worthy footage that really enhanced the show, we’re using him for all 26 episodes!! Must hire.
– Robin Samuels – Producer – Welcome Home
Aaron is a very experienced and reliable film director and producer. His sensitivity for motion picture aesthetic, drone skill, and work ethic are hard to come across in one package. Highly recommended!
– Chelsea Yu – Producer – XYU Design – Medical
I recently used Aaron’s services for an extremely difficult shoot. As a director it is not easy to explain the various coverages you need. Not only was Aaron aware of my vision, he was able to cover footage in an impossible way. His expertise and knowledge not only in being a drone operator but as a creative massively impacted our shoot. He has a calming personality and is extremely intelligent in the services that he provides. Please do not hesitate in using his services.
– Sarah Downey – Director – Laudanum
I hadn’t worked with Aaron before, and I was directing a high pressure shoot, that had to get done in a day and look amazing. Aaron exceeded all of my expectations!! If you’ve watched his work, you already know he is a master at what he does, and if you haven’t, trust me, he is. In addition to his talents, I would hire Aaron again and again, because he also brought a positivity, work ethic, and spirit to my production that I rarely see. I credit the teamwork and spirit on my set to Aaron’s presence and professionalism.
– Andrew Bennet – Director – Mourning Rituals
