Aerial Film Australia (AFA) proudly introduces JetShot, the fastest aerial gimbal in Australia and the sole aerial filming jet system in the Oceania region.

JetShot combines the high-speed L-39 Albatros aircraft with the cutting-edge Shot Over ‘Rush’ gimbal, the very same combination used in renowned US films like Top Gun: Maverick.

Demonstrating their expertise, AFA recently undertook an exhilarating project, chasing two F35 fighter jets and a C17 Globemaster for the Australian Air Force. AFA is a one stop shop when it comes to supplying and operating high-end aerial filming platforms and crew in Australia.

Backed by over 20 years of experience in the film industry, AFA possesses an extensive knowledge base of diverse filming locations. Their deep understanding of logistical requirements ensures that the camera is always perfectly positioned to capture those critical dramatic shots.

AFA covers all bases by utilising the Shot Over K1 and Shot Over F1 for helicopter, land tracking, and watercraft shots, while employing the Shot Over F1 ‘Rush’ specifically for jet-based filming.

At the helm of AFA are award-winning producer Gregory Read and AACTA-nominated aerial cinematographer Peter Beeh. Peter’s remarkable portfolio includes collaborations with renowned cinematographers such as Roger Deakins on the Academy Award-nominated film Unbroken, Claudio Miranda on Spiderhead, Dariusz Wolski on Alien: Covenant, and Greig Fraser on Lion. His inspiring work has garnered acclaim in the Asia Pacific region and beyond.

“Peter Beeh’s overhead and helicopter shots of Australia’s mountains and deserts are not only majestic, but, because they are in deep focus, provide a dizzying sense of unending space”
