Todd Jones: Revolutionizing Action Sports Filmmaking

“In aerial cinematography, you have to see the vision of what you want to do—because it’s just moving space—and you have to communicate that to your pilot.”

Once an East Coast kid who dreamed of Rocky Mountain powder snow, Todd Jones worked as a professional skier, helicopter skiing guide, and commercial fisherman before co-founding Teton Gravity Research. In the 18 years since, TGR has grown into the premier action sports production company, capturing everything from skiers on the steepest Alaskan mountainsides to surfers taking on the world’s most dangerous waves, all while pioneering innovative filmmaking techniques, including gyroscopically stabilized helicopter-mounted cameras.
