Color Me Smoke – Smoke Grenade

Enola Gaye Smoke Grenades have been in my arsenal of gear to use for filming for a while. And I’ve been looking for the right location and idea to use them that conveyed a engaging short film.

Along with my wife and some of my friends we went out to the desert in Utah and created some really stunning images.

I’m always trying to think of things that are a little out of the ordinary and this is one of the projects that I feel like is headed in that direction.

    Zac Eskelsen, Owner of Helivate Films kills it!!!! He took our production level to the skies with moving dynamic imagery. It’s always great to have people on your team willing to push the envelope and take chances to create that amazing shot, Zac is that person. Super easy going, wonderful to work with and an amazing pilot. I would recommend him to anyone for their professional aerial needs. - Mike Jones.

    Zac saved my bacon. We were nearly to our location in Moab (4 hours away) when our aerial cinematographer had to turn back with a family emergency. Called Zac. Not only was he very accommodating with our immediate schedule, but he quickly got the concept and was able to capture images that enhanced the cinematic storytelling of our show. So easy to work with. And talented too. Thanks Zac.

    I found my experience with Zac Eskelsen and Helivate Films to be outstanding in every way. Not only can they “deliver the goods” when it comes to aerial photography, they were professional to work with, prompt at responding to our questions, and attentive to our needs. I would highly recommend Helivate.
