Flying Multi rotors has brought me much recognition in the field. I have flown for many different producers and directors. No two jobs are ever the same. Creativity, experience and a good eye from the sky is what makes the difference between an acceptable shot and a truly amazing one. My company and I have invested much time and energy into perfecting our craft.

We we're lucky to have found Xizmo Productions for our complex aerial shoot in Manhattan, they are very level-headed team that listened carefully to our needs and made it happen. Communication is always the key with production, and these guys we're honest and professional from start to finish.

I had the pleasure of working with Xizmo on a shoot out in the Shenandoah region of Virginia recently. What was great about meeting and working with Eddie was not only his experience and professionalism, but how seamlessly he integrated into our crew. It was a very enjoyable experience and I hope to work with Xizmo again in the future.

As Queens College alumni, Pablo and Ed exemplify what it means to be hard working, talented, self-starters, who offer a one-of-a kind professional service that you won't find anywhere in the city. We partnered with Xizmo Media to create an aerial video of the Queens College campus and the surrounding borough to provide prospective students who weren't able to visit the college, a way to see the campus and the community that we live in. Pablo and Ed went out of their way shooting all aspects of the campus—from external shots of our 80-acre campus to interior shots of our auditoriums and sports facilities. They then went out onto the streets of Queens and shot everything from Mets Stadium to downtown Flushing to Long Island City. The video they produced was first class! I highly recommend them!

I decided to work with Eddie because of his great reel & great communication. After the first shoot I was very happy with his work ethic, pleased with his character and very impressed with the footage. He showed up early. He executed every shot I asked for and suggested some of the best shots of the day as well. He was able to get very complex shots quickly helping us get all the footage needed in just 2 days instead of 3, saving us money and time. He was pleasant to deal with. I am grateful to have found a consistently reliable drone operator as well as a creative partner with a great eye and ear. Eddie has a combination of character trails and skills that are hard to find, but necessary in every aerial video production.

I contacted Eddie after working with Xizmo on the Hard Road Pictures gig (mentioned below). He went the extra mile to be sure that we got the shots that we needed even bringing a Ronin and backup equipment in case we wanted to use it. Once in the air, Eddie got all of the shots we wanted and more, taking direction well and translating our shot descriptions and wants into aerial maneuvers that looked great. He also came up with ideas of his own that we didn't conceive and those shots added a lot of value too. Highly recommended pilot and aerial cinematographer that will get you more shots than you can use in your edits. Thanks guys!

I placed an ad on Craigslist and chose Eddie because he had the most professional response with the best reel. On shoot day Eddie exceeded my expectations with attention to detail, professionalism, compassion for the project and enthusiasm to deliver an outstanding job. Eddie arrived 30 mins early to test the drone and suss out the area. He did an amazing job. And he delivered the footage the next day. I'm looking forward to seeing more from this company in the future.

I have discovered Xizmo in 2014 when looking for a drone and operator in NYC. I booked Xizmo and had a great experience. The equipment and the knowledge they bring to the shoot makes working with Xizmo effortless. I have since worked with Xizmo on several projects in NYC and oversees and I look forward to further projects together.

Xizmo came through for me on a last second shoot and handled themselves like pros. I felt fully confident during the shoot that everything was going smoothly. Because of Xizmo our local commercial got great visuals no other drone operator I spoke to in NY was comfortable shooting. These guys are the real deal and I've already recommended them to my film associates.

Have done quite a bit of business with Xizmo, and I have nothing but great things to say. Professional, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. Pro industry grade work for a lot less than Hollywood $$.

Great bunch of guys. They were able to implement everything we asked for.
