Helicopter Film Services

About us

Helicopter Film Services (HFS) was founded in 1993 and incorporated in 1996 by cinematographer Jeremy Braben. HFS was formed out of the need to find a truly independent supplier of high quality gyro-stabilized equipment and talented pilots. Initially started with a Kestrel Mount and later the European agents for the Spacecam, HFS went on to purchase and build our own stable of equipment and now provide a wide variety of equipment with top class crews – worldwide. 1n 1999 Braben was joined by talented aeronautical and electronic engineer, Oliver Ward to design new aerial equipment for ARRI Media in the UK. Ward now oversees all of HFS sophisticated mounts and has been responsible for the design and build of our new 3D rigs and those for other manufacturers.

Our commitment to top class service and technology is unceasing.
