Meet the Team
Kirk Williams started Birds Eye Optics in 2012 to continue to pursue a visual storytelling career after breaking his neck in 2009. With a background in still photography, it didn't take long for Kirk to realize that camera equipped UAV's had immense potential. Since then, Kirk has been learning the skills needed to fly UAV's safely and opperate within the FAA regulations.
Adam Rosenberg is a valuable member Birds Eye Optics for many reasons. His immense knowledge in the editing suite ensures that the material is captured in a systematic way that will make sense when it comes time to edit. He can quickly turn raw footage into a usable edit or add animation and graphics if desired. For some examples of Adams personal work you can check out his personal website here
Buddy Thomas is not a newbie to the film industry. He owns his own production company Eyeconic Production, and specializes in lighting, time lapse, steadycam operation, editing and cold brew coffee. We originally met Buddy when he lived up the street but he has quickly become our go too when we need more than just aerials.
With over 10 years of producing in the film industry, Ian specializes in making sure everything moves smoothly from start to finish. He understands the time and budgets needed to get the job done. He has a background in editing and comic relief to help things work out when stress levels get high on set.
Jimmy has been flying UAV's since they first hit the scene 10 years ago making his comfort level in technical flying unmattched. His knowledge in the mechanical aspects of how UAV's work ensures out equipment is always working at full potential. When he's not working with us he can be found designing and testing for Agrobotix, an agriculture based drone company here in Boulder, CO.
Whether is cleaning up scraps of food you dropped or offering to be an unpaid model, Bella is ready. Though she spends most of her days dreaming of tennis balls and T bone steaks, Bella loves to be on set screwing up soundest from here habitual snoring and striking good looks.
This team first worked together on BOUNDLESS in 2015. Even though we all have our own businesses apart from Birds Eye Optics, when we collaborate to make a full production we use our specialties to complete the package. Our crew consists of multitalented friends who know what it takes to get the job done right. We understand that 3am call times are sometimes what it takes. We work hard to play hard!
