MEET THE TEAM
Director, DP, Editor
Daniel Byers is an award-winning total-filmmaker with over 20 expedition productions under his belt. From trapping snow leopards in war-torn Afghanistan, to bike-trekking after a wolf for a thousand miles, to conservation work from the shadow of Everest to the reefs of pacific islands, he's an expert hand at expedition logistics and inspired storytelling.
Joey Brunelle is the behind-the-scenes heavyweight polymath that keeps our Skyship smooth-sailing. Need historical research? DVD and poster design? Advanced web coding? No problem. Production planning and logistics? Documentary editing? He's on it.
Zachary Ludescher is a guy you want around when the going gets rough. Rigging transformers to boat batteries for field power? Pulling aikido gymnastics or powering up mountainsides for the perfect shot? This is your guy.
Sam Eilertsen is an expert shooter and gear junkie, capable of solving any problem. He's like production butter - if you want things to go smoothly, apply him generously.
Harry Aspinwall is a filmmaker, editor, linguistics expert, musician, and actor. Need an epic score for your film? Voiceover? Unbeatable sense of pacing and style in edit? Working in translation with a rare language? Harry does it all.
ADVENTURE, ENVIRONMENT, HUMANITY
Icy mountains, surging rivers, fetid jungles and windblown steppes - at Skyship, we don't just love extreme environments, we specialize in telling the stories within them.
Inspired by the world, we in turn seek to inspire - pushing ourselves and our craft to be worthy of it. To explore the cutting edge of what is being found but never forget the cutting edge of what is being lost.
To fight for that most fragile, give voice to those who deserve one, and make every project something we’re proud to call our own.
