Welcome to OrlandoDrones.net, the digital portfolio of Aerial Drone Pilot, Mike Germond. Orlando Drones is based in Orlando, Florida and willing to travel for your production. We are one of very few companies across the United States who have obtained Commercial Aerial Photography and Closed Set Filming exemption from the FAA. Do not risk the liability of hiring illegitimate pilots or hobbiests! Trust the professionals at Orlando Drones. This site is dedicated to introducing you to me and the work that I do. As a Pilot with a post-production background, I always keep the end product in mind. My goal is to translate the technical art of Multirotor Helicopters to your production in a manner that advances your story line.

Mike is a Michigan native, currently living in Central Florida, and able to work as local in both states. Since a young age, he was passionate about the technical aspects of Film/Video Production. Mike re-launched his career as a Steadicam Operator after years in the Live Sports industry, and has quickly become the go-to guy for moving the camera smoothly on the ground. But camera movement should not be limited to the lower altitudes, or the reach of a jib arm. Being the camera movement specialist that he is, Mike sought to turn his long time hobby of RC Vehicles into a powerful tool for moving the camera like the world has never seen before. With the latest advancements in technology, jaw-dropping shots and ground-breaking footage is possible to achieve with Professional Digital 35mm cameras that Cinematographers would love to use on aerial vehicles, but for fractions of the cost.
