Who we are

Commercial Production Duo

thedronebook is a creative production duo consisting of Chris and Marisa. Together, they form a holistic partner for photography and film with a focus on aerial, hospitality, travel, lifestyle, and commercial productions. Based in Germany, thedronebook works internationally and has been fortunate to collaborate with many renowned brands, including Four Seasons, Waldorf Astoria, Emirates, The Ritz-Carlton, Raffles, and Ooni.

The duo realized early on that photo and film have to work hand in hand to create a cohesive outcome that speaks the same visual language. This approach led them to often produce both still images and film when working on projects. This places them in a select category of creatives who can master both techniques. Especially with the use of drones, their creative possibilities are unleashed.

Their dramatic and cinematic style is a true reflection of their creative vision, with every shot being carefully composed to capture authentic and timeless yet modern aesthetic visuals that never feel overdone or contrived.

With German precision, thedronebook strives for excellence in every aspect of its work, resulting in a portfolio that exudes superior and timeless quality while still feeling fresh and contemporary.

As individuals, Chris and Marisa each bring their unique talents to the table. Chris is the cinematographer/DoP, drone pilot, photographer and does post-production. He loves to dive deep into a project, and his open-minded and curious nature enables him to connect with different people and topics. Chris combines creativity with technical craft, walking the fine line between the two. With hundreds of hours operating cine drones and camera systems, his experience assures that he will capture the perfect shot. Marisa is a photographer and excels in creative direction and production management. Passionate about detail, she visualizes the thoughts of clients on point. Her strength lies in bridging strategic briefings and visual executions, always ensuring that the final result meets the client’s objectives while maintaining the creative vision.

Together, Chris and Marisa’s love for their work shines through on every project. They thrive on direct communication and aim to create content that resonates with viewers, drawing them in and making them crave more. Their ultimate goal is to passionately support their clients and partners to reach their desired objectives and bring their vision to life.
