A few months ago, I found an incredible video posted on YouTube that led me down the rabbit hole to the international master of drone cinematography, CHRIS TANGEY. Not only that, my fellow Aussie countryman heads up one of the most remote media broadcasting, film & TV production services located in Alice Springs in the red heart of the country that attracts attention from clients, filmmakers and festivals from around the world.So, I’ve now spent many have hours viewing his brilliant drone videos shot for corporate and tourism organizations which are licensed for int’l use; I recommend you check them out on his aerial videos page: https://bit.ly/3S3mEHS – I swear you’ll sit there viewing with your mouth wide open in amazement as the drones swoop down, around and over stunning landscapes…like I did!
The video that opened up Chris’ amazing cinematic world to me is this multi-award winning “My Australia” video – enjoy:
To date, Chris and his company have won 8 gold and 5 silver awards from the Australian Cinematographers Society and 26 international awards for aerial cinematography including wins from 3 different New York City festivals.
