RIAT - International Aviation Showcase

The world-renowned Air Tattoo draws crowds in their thousands as well aircraft from around the world. There's stunning aerial displays, military fast jets as well as a chance to see planes up close.

Working at an airshow is often hectic, combining elements of outside broadcast, co-ordination of multiple crews, the placement of mini-cams, locating contributors & conducting interviews - all in a challenging air-side environment where safety is paramount. In addition, in-depth aviation knowledge is indispensible.

Martin has been filming at airshows since 2001. The Royal International Air Tattoo is by far the biggest. He has filmed there in 2003, 2007 & 2008 and has also directed at Flying Legends at Duxford and at the Biggin Hill Air Fair

With his passion for aviation, Martin is always at ease with the subject matter & the particular demands of aviation filmmaking & getting access.

As well as covering the Air Tattoo itself, Martin also filmed an observational HD documentary on international aerobatic display teams, from the Red Arrows to the Patrouille de France to Italy's Frecce Tricolore.

Production Company: Gemini Pictures Ltd., Red Admiral Productions, Perspective Productions.
