Contact Aleksandar Pejovic by email

Alex works as a Producer for our local productions, as well as production assistant and/or Multicopter pilot & technician for our international clients.

He was born in Croatia and eventually moved to Tenerife with his family. He studied law at the University of La Laguna in Tenerife during the mid '80s, but started a career in new technologies, and grew a business designing and building computer systems for local businesses, schools and government departments. During this time Alex made many contacts within the Canarian government and town halls, which has proven extremely valuable to his career as a producer, giving him access to political allies to arrange permissions and permits in a timely manner!

Through his extensive knowledge in computing and new technology, Alex became interested in designing and building Multicopters, realising the impact these machines would have on the film & TV industry. Alex started a new company, Multicopter Canarias, a sister company to Film!CanaryIslands, which now designs, builds and flies its own custom designed range of Multicopters and stabilisation systems.
