The world of TV and movie production can certainly appear glamorous from the outside, but it takes an extraordinary amount of hard work and planning to create the final product we all see on screen. And for the group of aviation companies who are delegated to help make the magic happen, no detail is too small, or plan too thorough.
One of the premier providers of the helicopter and fixed-wing aviation assets and services to the motion picture and TV industry is Aerial Cinema Productions (ACP). Aerial Cinema is committed to providing superior service not only on the east coast but throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. Their team of highly skilled professionals combines with state of the art equipment to produce the production values client project demands, at the price the client’s budget dictates, safely and efficiently.
One of the company’s key strengths is its owner — Ray McCort— who has a long and revered history as a helicopter Film Pilot and SAG (Screen Actors Guild) stunt pilot who flies helicopters for feature films and TV commercials as ( Coca-cola, LL Bean, American Airlines, and Microsoft ) . Ray was the original co-founder of the first full-service aerial production company on the east coast (Aerial Cinema Productions) along with Cinematographer Joshua Narins.
Ray McCort has flown on dozens of feature films and over 100 commercials, including Chill Factor starring Cuba Gooding Jr. Stepmom starring Susan Sarandon, and Vanilla Sky starring Tom Cruise. He has extensive knowledge of the industry. Ray eventually took a break from flying for the movies and was flying for several News Stations throughout the US as a pilot/reporter.
Currently, he has relocated to the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area to begin flying productions in the Southern Florida area as well as the east coast. Ray has recently created an off-shoot of ACP called Aerial Cinema Drones. The company will utilize drones to fly for various film & video productions and has just received approval by the FAA.
