Meet Mark Nguyen // Aerial Pilot // Director of Photography
The General’s Daughter was my first opportunity to work on a feature film. After working that production, I knew this is what I wanted to do. Some way, somehow.
I am an Emmy award winning Savannah native that went to SCAD, graduating in the fields of Motion Graphics and Broadcast Design. I have always strived to generate new creative ideas, to stay ahead of the fast paced world of creative content. Working with drones gave me an opportunity to get a head start on how they could be incorporated in so many different industries and not just film production.
After years of “fixing things in post” for others, I started my own company. Alienworx is a media company with the 1st FAA exempt and local #600 union aerial crew in the southeast, with an Emmy Award Winning Team.

5 Time Emmy Award Winner
Birth of a Nation was our first opportunity for aerial cinematography, which lead to validation and conversations to join Local #600.
A great local production moment was when my daughter was picked to be in a couple of scenes in The Gifted.
