Who We Are


Our Team

With hundreds of hours in flight, our unique cinematic approach is solidly rooted in a decade of professional experience. Our studio's strength lies in our diverse backgrounds in architecture, cinematography, photography and graphics. Above Summit sculpts truly remarkable images and cinematic footage, presented and delivered unlike ever before.

Jovan Tanasijevic

Co-founder | Creative Director | Drone Operator

Not one for titles and hierarchy, Jovan wears the numerous hats required of a small business. With equal passions for art, technology and entrepreneurship, he lives for the creative rigor of a new challenge and business relationship. His diverse skills and leadership fuel our multi-disciplinary team to reach for greater heights.

Emilie Pickering

Co-founder | Director of Photography

From pre-to-post production, Emilie leaves her fingerprint on every project. She is our quality control, aesthetic direction, and voice of reason. Her education in architecture combined with her natural eye for shooting and editing provide a wealth of technical and artistic sensibility. 

Bojan Vanovac

Director | Filmmaker

As an award winning director, Bojan is no stranger to making concepts come to life on the big screen. From film and documentaries to music videos and commercials that reach millions of views on social platforms and publications, he runs his own business Alpha D'arc in NYC. He also enjoys sunsets and long walks on the beach.

Ruben Alves

Producer | Partner

Every since we've known him, Ruben has had the innate ability to connect people, organize them, and even convince them to do it for free. His trustworthiness and conviction make it easy to say yes. Who wouldn't want to do a five week indie film in a remote cabin? Ruben run productions, big or small, with equal thoughtfulness and attention to detail.

Derek Palmer

Photographer | Studio Manager

A native New Englander, Derek has a strong concentration in documentary and journalism, having had the opportunity to meet some incredible people through his lens. Life is all about the in-between moments and his work as a photographer is to help bring your own narrative to life. Well isn't that just inspirational!

Roman Kurtser

Avionics Technician | Drone Operator

Every team needs a Macgyver. Roman is our do-all and a perfectionist, at that. His problem solving and diversity make him an indispensable part of our team - be it toiling away at a build in our tech shop, flying a rig carrying a $50k camera package or figuring out which wire to cut to diffuse a situation, Roman has nerves of steel.

Enver Perez

Filmmaker | Editor

Originally from Caracas, Venezuela, Enver jumped into editing straight out of college which brought him to multiple national broadcasting stations before moving to the States. We knew, when we brought him on, that he could handle anything we threw at him. Needless to say, he became the rock to our post-production team, reducing our turn around and making some of our most kick ass videos, yet!

GuruAmar Khalsa

Filmmaker | Editor

With a background in journalism and storytelling, GuruAmar loves telling stories through photo or video or interactive dance. Her attention to detail, ability to read situations, and tendency to climb tall things for the perfect angle have made her an essential part of the team. From Florida to India to Oregon to Alaska to Boston, she is always right at home as long as she has a camera....and coffee.

Pete Ricci

Videographer | Gaffer

When the moon hits your eye, like a big 10K light, it's Pete Ricci. He's Italian, yes, so you know Pete's got that good sauce for setting the tone for a scene or framing a specific shot. His seasoned camera and lighting work make it a blast to work with him. You know it's going to be a good day on set when Pete is in the mix.

The Huxley

Office Dog

I love hiking up mountains and long swims in any body of water I can find. When the human pack is at the studio, I spend my time napping under Emilie's desk while she's editing. During consultations I try my very best to be in the laps of whoever is sitting on the couch, otherwise I'm not allowed up there. 

Marcus Blair

Animator

Marcus is a wiz with motion graphics and a great filmmaker to boot. The countless hours required to perfect a three second animation is where he shines. That's about the only thing that shines in his dark, windowless room, as we often forget to feed him. If you want to see Marcus ever again, hire us for your next animation! We screen calls from his parents daily.

Federico Creatini

Drone Operator | Client Relations

From our early days as a company, Federico was there to help built and operated our drones. If there was a crazy idea, he was there to hike up ravines or jumping into the cold of winter. His eye for the dramatic and expertise as an operator helped capture some of our most spectacular footage.
