About Us

Welcome to Sky Captain Aerial and Media Specialists, where a decade of operation meets over 40 years of collective experience in the media production landscape. What began as a hobby has blossomed into a full-scale business, driven by a team whose skill and passion for visual storytelling are unmatched. At the heart of our ethos lies honesty, openness, and an unrivalled flexibility to tailor our services, scaling from intimate small business projects to large-scale industrial operations across the UK.


Our unique edge? In-house drone capabilities backed by 40 years of UAV flying experience, coupled with our expertise in SFX, motion graphics, audio production, time-lapse, and high-speed filming. This comprehensive skill set allows us to maintain low overheads, quick turnaround times, and complete control over quality. Our portfolio boasts significant projects like the three-year documentation of Ferrybridge Powerstation’s decommissioning, contributions to the BBC's One Show, Channel 4 and collaborations with The Northern Film School, North Yorkshire Police, and the HSE.


At Sky Captain, we pride ourselves on being a small yet formidable force in media production, offering professionalism with a personal touch that turns your visions into vivid realities.



At Sky Captain, our commitment to safety is paramount in every project we undertake. We adhere to the highest safety standards, meticulously planning each shoot with a keen eye for detail. Prior to any filming, we conduct comprehensive risk assessments and method statements (RAMS), ensuring a well-prepared approach. Additionally, pre-site visits are a routine part of our preparation process, allowing us to anticipate and mitigate potential hazards.

Understanding the constraints of aerial filming, we acknowledge that certain conditions, like adverse weather or legal restrictions, can pose challenges. In such scenarios, we adapt swiftly, employing both aerial and ground photography techniques to capture every moment safely and effectively. Our team closely monitors weather forecasts leading up to each shoot, enabling us to schedule filming during optimal conditions and avoid any risky situations.

Our ethos is rooted in professionalism, safety, and a genuine passion for our craft. The Sky Captain team is not only skilled and safety-conscious but also friendly and enthusiastic about delivering exceptional results in every endeavor.

Sky Captain is registered with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and we have a Public Liability Insurance Policy of £5 million.  We also complete a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) for public shoots in accordance with Data Protection.
