The Xcam Aerials' team is rich in history and client satisfaction. Our aerial D/P-gimbal operators are second to none, and our technicians and pilots are world class!
Xcam's crew has dozens of ultra high-end jobs under their belt and the type of can-do attitudes that Directors and Producers love to see on their sets.
Xcam Aerials' team consists of Jordan "Jordy" Klein, Matt Staker, Mark Lynch, Bobby Watts, Luke Yonge, Mark Force, and Beresford "Beast" Davis.
Jordan "Jordy" Klein is Xcam Aerials' President, D/P, Gimbal Operator and Director of Flight Operations. Jordy has over 5,000 hours as a full scale commercial, fixed wing and helicopter pilot. Jordy is a second generation Academy award nominated filmmaker, and his career spans over 20 years in the entertainment industry.
Matt Staker is a world class land and water DP as well as one of the industries top drone gimbal operators. Matt is also a veteran X-Games wakeboard competitor and a full scale pilot who understands how to intricately shoot action sports aerial cinematography.
Mark Lynch is an Emmy award winning Director of Photography who has also been involved in film-making for well over 2 decades. Mark is also a full scale pilot who fully understands the challenges of working on-set with radio controlled aircraft.
Xcam Aerials' Chief Technical Officer and Pilot, Bobby Watts, is an icon in the radio controlled helicopter and multirotor industry. Bobby started flying with Xcam in 2006 and has never looked back. Watts understands how to interpret storyboards and can fly an RC aircraft like a 3 dimensional dolly in the sky. Bobby also runs the R&D division of Xcam. He is fluent in the design program SolidWorks, and can design and build any part of a helicopter, multirotor or gimbal on our in-house CNC machine.
Luke Yonge is one of the youngest members of the Xcam family, but don't let Luke’s age fool you. His abilities far outweigh his age. Luke feels just as comfortable flying an Inspire drone for a corporate venue as he does flying a full size Alexa for a top Hollywood studio.
Mark Force is actually the youngest member of the Xcam family. Mark is a jack of all trades and can fly, Gimbal operate, or tech in almost any situation.
Xcam Aerials' Aircraft Design Engineer and Pilot, Beresford "Beast" Davis, is at the top of the game when it comes to designing multirotor aircraft that withstands the riggers of day-in and day-out flying for the entertainment industry. Unlike many multirotor designers, Beast runs all of our aircraft, motors, components, and batteries through a stress analysis program prior to building them. All of our airframe materials are cut on-site with a computer controlled, carbon fiber cutting machine
