DERYL Group

At DERYL we combine creativity, skills, intelligence and technology with over two decades of experience in film and digital content creation industry to provide complete services to deliver amazing imagery focused on the new 8K broadcast standard…

History

Our beginning goes back to 1994, when we first established a company specialising in computer graphics (CGI) and 3D animation in Slovak Republic. Providing photorealistic 3D visualisation services for architects from the Slovak Film Studios Koliba based office, it was not long before we landed our first feature film job – DragonHeart. Things began moving quickly…

Over the years we expanded to include complete production and postproduction services. Our aviation background and passion for flying naturally steered us to specialise in aerial filming and we quickly built a high reputation in several countries, including France, UK, Australia, Mexico and USA.

Our unique combination of skills, covering both creative and technical areas, allowed us to further expand into research and development. Creating various customised equipment and accessories, it was only a matter of time until we commenced full-blown commercial scale manufacturing contracts.

Since 2010 we have been permanently based in Japan, where we have established our new headquarters. When RC technology progressed to a level where it became possible to use remote-controlled aerial platforms to carry the new breed of cinema-quality digital film cameras, it was only natural that DERYL Group started to focus on this emerging industry.

Today our company provides services well beyond the film industry, expanding into areas such as construction, agriculture and even civic services for search and rescue. As one of the leading experts on aerial imaging, we also provide government-level consulting on the creation and implementation of new laws governing the use of unmanned aerial systems (UAS).

Peter has been around the world 15 times and you could mistake his resume to be an amalgamation of every film-school student’s “if i has 3 wishes” list. But more importantly the guy is a sweetheart… super nice guy with no Ego.
