Experience - brief overview of your professional skills

We are constantly innovating so we can help you capture amazing shots with the best equipment.

In house, we have an ARRI Alexa Mini and Red Epic camera kits available to work with our MoVI Pro gimbal system. We fly DJI Inspire 2 drone systems with X5S camera on board for 5K RAW capture.

We shot the drone aerials for feature films SFv1 and Cargo, TV series The Kettering IncidentChildhoods End and more. 
We also provide on ground camera support with car mounts, cablecam and handheld gimbal work.

We also design and manufacture award winning accessories to optimise the use of gimbals on set.

Tom brings his creative eye to Ignite Digi. He is our in house cinematographer, MōVI controller and camera assistant. His AFTRS cinematography training, years of camera assisting and on set work have prepared him well for this role. Whether working in the creative team discussing the next shot, pulling focus or operating the MōVI, Tom understands visual storytelling and brings both creative and technical knowledge to your next production.
