Cinematic Film Production
Hi, I’m Rory Hinds and this is Mine.
I’m a Director of Photography living in West Vancouver, BC with over 20 years experience working worldwide on commercials, television and feature films.
I have had the honour of delivering footage for major motion pictures and award winning television shows.
Mine is my company of a select team providing a collection of experience, skilled talent and cutting edge technology forged together with a solid international reputation of capturing epic images on the ground and in the air.
Mine is proud, humble, hardworking and passionate about creating moving images.
My production services are focused on strong storytelling and high-end cinematic quality.
That’s what makes it mine.
Director of Photography – Drone Pilot
Originally from South Africa I’ve been on the planet for 43 years and spent 15 years in London, UK before settling in Vancouver, BC.
I have a thirst for image creation, a burning passion that drives me to share a compelling story.
I exert a tremendous amount of my energy practicing the art of capturing light and shadows and mastering appropriate timing.
Using the latest technology and film making techniques I’ve had the honour of capturing images for award winning television shows (Fargo, Hell on Wheels) and major motion pictures (Angles & Demons and Kingsman).
I’m an IATSE 669 DOP and Drone Pilot working on both union and non-union shows with a complete Red 8K Helium camera and lens package both on the ground and in the air. I’m fully Transport Canada certified flying day and night with extensive experience in complex flight operations involving permits flying up the Calgary Tower, around Banff / Jasper National Parks and in crazy cold deep winter, high up in the alpine at -32 C (-25.6 F).
I’m honest, solid and dependable.
My team work hard to get the shot.

I’ve always lead the way with the UK’s first Red Camera back in 2007. Today I’m capturing 8K images on Red’s new 8K S35 Helium sensor, a 35.4 Megapixel image with 300Mb/s data speed.
Complemented by the worlds most optical pure lenses, the Zeiss Otus which are pin sharp wide open at T1.3.
I backup my production work with Autodesk’s Flame editing and visual effects aw well as colour grading with Davinci Resolve.
PILOT CONTROLLED FLIGHT, NO ROBOTICS.

My clients demand reliable camera movement that is controlled by a ninja drone pilot.
I pilot and fly the FreeFly Alta which gives precise real world control without the robotic movement found in consumer drone technology.
My drone is a the ultimate aerial camera movement system that has a proven safety record and solid reputation.
Vision is the art of seeing
what is invisible to others.

for only thus will he fully understand the world in which he lives.”
