The Pilot

_devin_flyingBased in the San Francisco bay area, Hover Effect LLC was founded by Devin Hedrick.  With over 16 years experience as an unmanned aerial vehicle pilot, and 4 years as an aerial photographer. Devin was nominated for an Emmy for his work on the National Geographic Television Program “Ice Bear.”  From an early age it was clear that Devin had a passion for building models.  That passion progressed into remote controlled cars and boats, then to airplanes, and ultimately, to helicopters. After graduating with a B.A. from Southern Methodist University, Devin attended the masters program for film at the Academy of Art in San Francisco.  Film production and editing quickly became Devin’s second great passion.  After four years as a freelance editor for companies such as Current TV, Q media Partners, and Butler, Shine, Stern & Partners, Devin realized that it was possible to combine his passion for film and his passion for remote controlled helicopters.  The result was Hover Effect.
