Mike Isler is the head of production for Gotham Films, a New York Based Aerial and Aviation joint venture featuring helicopter as well as drone operations in the NYC area and beyond. Mike comes on to talk not only about the unique challenges of operating these type of aircraft in the New York area, but also helps us break down and understand the question 'why not just use a drone'? It's a great discussion, and we hope you enjoy spending time with us! (sorry that Paul's video isn't working, we're not sure what happened there. At time of recording, there was a bit of an internet delay, so if it seems like we're constantly interrupting Mike, it's because of the delay).
