    Aerial Videography and Photography

    I am licensed to fly the DJI Mavic Pro. All drone activities in Singapore require an Activity Permit from CAAS which takes 2 weeks to approve. In areas with flight restrictions, I can alternatively operate a camera and gimbal at the end of a monopod, giving drone-like footages and circumventing any limitations on flight operations

    • DJI Mavic Pro- 4K videos with Log colour profiles, 12 Megapixels still image
    • Polar Pro Cinematic Filters- High quality ND filters for filming under bright sunlight conditions
    • 3x Mavic Pro Intelligent Batteries- Giving approximate 1 hour of actual flying and recording time
    • Sony a6500- APS-C sensor capable of 4K 30fps
    • Zhiyun Crane v2- 3 axis gimbal for super smooth and fluid footage
  • About Andrew Chua

    In any project, the story is always king. Picture, sound and all other filmmaking departments exist only to support the storytelling. As such, beyond the technical excellence in our skills and disciplines, I believe that a positive attitude and fantastic communication is key to the entire team coming together to tell a great story. It is ok if tasks seem impossible or plans have to change. Spending so much time pursuing a creative endeavor takes grit and purpose. Having a friendly and co-operative attitude makes the whole process much more enjoyable.

     

    My journey as an audio and drone professional has brought me to many places across the world. During my travels, I have had the opportunity to work on many creative projects; collaborating with many like-minded creative individuals. I speak English, Chinese and Bahasa Melayu fluently. I have very strong technical and artistic skills and bring a positive attitude to support, enhance and elevate your projects.
