Health and Safety
At Ascension Films we take the risks involved in producing aerial footage very seriously. We aim to guide a production step by step through the sometime tricky terrain involved making these beautiful sequences.

Pilots flying for Ascension Films are fully BNUC-S qualified and insured.
They are as such the final authority on safety during aerial operations and will always vocalise the procedure on set to both cast and crew before flight to ensure everyone’s safety.

Our camera operator, Charlie Endean, is a professional 1st AD and hence carries the 5 year BBC Health and Safety passport which adds a unique layer of planning and on set protocol to all of Ascension Films aerial operations.

We work clearly with the production team on specific demands of a shot prior to the shoot to ensure maximised efficiency for your shoot day.
