This year, Charlie Barth was awarded the 2011 Jacksonville Film and Television Industry Award for his 50 years of dedication to the film industry. Charlie has shot and directed thousands of television commercials, industrial and corporate films, broadcast specials and more, and in particular became the go-to expert for aerials. It was in 1986 that he created his company, White Hawk Pictures and has not stopped since. His dedication has provided him with big name credentials such as Ford, spots with Burger King, Winn-Dixie and filming the final interview with serial killer Ted Bundy.
