Elevated Productions

Nick Wolcott spent 5 years as a newspaper photographer enjoying mountain town life and getting his pilot’s license. In 2011 he came across a video of someone flying a camera on a remote controlled helicopter and realized a way to combine his love of photography and flight.  He spent the next year engineering large scale, remote control helicopters and learning how to fly them. By 2011, he had left his job and started his company Elevated Productions.  Since then he has spent the past 6 years traveling the world shooting for productions such as Planet Earth II, National Geographic’s upcoming film about rock climber Alex Honnold, and Red Bull’s latest film about snowboarder Travis Rice. Awards include grand prize at the 2016 New York City Drone Film Festival and a 2016 Sports Emmy for outstanding camera work.
