Jeremy Wooding. Director and co writer of Burning Men.

"Highline Vision delivered soaring, beautiful, poetic shots on my film BURNING MEN. Well done and thank you."

Billy Payn. 1st Assistant Director of Burning Men.

"I met Alex of Highline Vision on the film Burning Men. I found Alex to be a very hard working, reliable and professional member of the crew. I enjoyed watching as he did the jobs of two people, and became aware he was loving the process. He did the drone flying on this film, and I was impressed with his level of professionalism and confidence, his understanding and ability to deliver in challenging situations."

Sam Sykes. Founder & CEO Sam Sykes Ltd & Mammut mountain school - Brand ambassador Mammut.

"The shots Highline Vision provided my company have made a huge impact on the quality of our marketing approach."

Jono Smith. Director of photography.

"I've worked with Alex for over 5 years now. He camera assisted for me on my feature film Pylon, shooting amazing timelapse photography and working the second camera on the road in India. This year he came on aboard on the feature film 'Burning Men' as the drone operator. Alex is a great drone op, he pulled off some amazing shots for this job. So if your looking for someone who can fly a drone, shoot beautiful timelapse and camera assist then Alex is your man."
