Our Mission

The goal behind every Delahoyde project is to maintain an eagerness to learn something with every new endeavor. Be it a technical innovation, learning about a new industry or project, getting to meet a fascinating new person or trying out a film technique, we hope to come away a little more worldly and knowledgeable after every project.



Delahoyde Projects owns and maintains two complete RED Digital Cinema cameras, including the new RED Helium, capable of shooting 8K, offering resolutions many times greater than standard HD. In addition, we own all of our additional equipment, from a large collection of Arri, Kino, and K5600 lighting packages, a Steadicam, dollies and sliders, professional support systems, and all of the miscellaneous grip and additional equipment needed to create an impressive production.
