The friendly skies
Cinema Productions (ACP) recently set up shop in Atlanta and provided
aerial support for DreamWorks’ Road Trip. Helicopter pilot, Ray McCort
provided coordination, flew the shots using a Bell JetRanger 206B
helicopter, directed the aerial unit and got all of the scenes filmed in
one day. The aerial shoot involved complicated vehicle coordination
traveling over bridges, highways and dirt roads. They mandated several
locations in Atlanta area 75 miles apart.
In the past year ACP has
worked on several projects in Atlanta, and the southeast area ranging from
feature films to commercials. Among its recent credits: Warner Bros.s’
Chill Factor, Paramounts’ Save the Last Dance, and New Line Cinema’s Now
and Then. The company also has helicopters located in New York, Washington
DC and Chicago.
