Who Is Aero?
Aero Film is more than just one of the world’s leading production companies. Six years ago, Executive Producers Lance O’Connor and Skip Short envisioned explosive growth in social networking and business opportunities expanding through the internet. They knew the world of advertising and entertainment would be changed forever, that clients would require a more collaborative environment and demand more creative input. So O’Connor and Short structured Aero Films to be a “game changer.” The result is an integrated production company organized to empower and channel world class creative.
American Rogue is a team that was born thinking ‘out of the box.’ It’s about non-union and specialized filmmaking, unrestricted by traditional commercial schedules, formats or budgets.
First to adopt HD and DSLR filmmaking, the ‘Rogues’ have been capturing long form stories in the most challenging environments, from riding with the LA Sheriff SWAT team to landing Marine One on the White House lawn, from covering both Iraq wars to exploring our view of history through powerful documentaries. Whether it’s shooting a blizzard on an Arctic glacier or 75 feet beneath the waters of Tahiti with humpback whales, there are few places the Rogues have not or will not venture.
American Rogue expanded to develop feature films, reality & scripted television and alternative digital media. Relationships with major networks and film studios formed because of Rogue’s ability to adapt production approaches that suit unique visionary requirements. We have a commitment to produce content that inspires and embodies the Rogue spirit.
