Ateles Films Service Red Epic-W Camera

Red Digital Cinema

Ateles Films has been filming on RED Cameras since they appeared on the market in 2008. Having been the first to shoot a wildlife film on RED in 2012 on Dutch TV and in Dutch cinema in 2013

Ateles Films uses Red cameras as their workhorse which offers a multitude of creative possibilities; combined with lenses we have owned for years, we can make smaller field packages to take in the field, reducing cost and burden of transporting equipment around the world.

Drones

Ateles Films has extensive experience using drones. Building and flying large drones to filming the current array of excellent RTF drones with 4k+ cameras in vast habitats such as jungles, mountains and deserts.

Drones add new perspectives to the filmmaking and story-telling process. It can go places we only dreamed of. The whole concept of lifting a camera into the sky requires minimal weight, meaning the CopterCam is a very light piece of kit and easy to transport around the world.
