4Rotor Filming is the aerial media production division of The Applegate Group, a full-service film and video production company based in Manhattan. 4Rotor is dedicated to producing high quality, HD video and still photography utilizing radio-controlled aircraft and image stabilization equipment.

Joe Keeney, DP, is a licensed commercial pilot which means he meets all pending Federal Aviation Administration rules for operating drones with cameras. Our remote-controlled aircrafts are lightweight, nimble, battery-powered and extremely cost-effective to operate.

Commercials, features and documentary projects can add spectacular aerial shots by booking our experienced production team. Drones fly like a helicopter with vertical flight powered by multiple electric motors.Through the use of our compact, unmanned aerial platforms and our steady-cams we are able to go from ground level up to 400 feet with forward speeds of 30+mph.

Our cameras shoot up to 4K with 24-30 fps. We can also produce HD/16 mp photographs. This allows us to capture angles that are nearly impossible with manned aircraft. Our remote-controlled aircraft are equipped with GPS, providing the ability to hold altitude, longitude and latitude-compensating wind while holding in a fixed position in flight.
