“Artbeats is continuing to push the limits of production value. We are now offering footage from shoots that cost five times what we were doing just a few years ago,” said Phil Bates, president of Artbeats. “Our recent Learjet shoot is just one example. We started the first day hiring the Learjet, an F-5 fighter, and Gulfstream IV for air-to-air shots. Over the next five days we took the Learjet equipped with two F900R's and chased clouds from California to Texas to Oregon. We are delighted to be able to offer these resulting titles to our customers.”
