Mendocino Drone was founded in 2019 by me, Anthony Wells.

After we had our baby girl in Southern California, Rebecca and I decided to move back to my hometown on the Mendocino Coast. She’s an incredible artist, I’ve always been into computers and cameras.

I was fortunate to have access to professional production tools early on.
The computers at school were loaded with Final Cut, ProTools and Photoshop. By the time I was 16 I knew them all very well.

Thank you to the countless teachers, coaches and supportive role models in this community.

I continued my education at Chico State University, graduating with a major in Communication Design and Media Arts. During my last year of University I was also working full time as a video producer for an Internet Marketing Startup called MyMediaBuyer.

After living in San Francisco, Santa Cruz, and Oahu,
I moved to Newport Beach, CA.

I worked there for five years, under direct mentorship from platinum record producer Lewis Richards. During this same period I was playing keyboards for a touring band, Seedless, sometimes for festival crowds of over 10,000 people.

The Marina Del Rey Film Festival gave me the “Best Cinematography” Award in 2014 for a short film I shot and edited.

In 2019 I moved back to the North Coast with my small family and started Mendocino Drone. Honestly, bios are weird; I like to let my work speak for itself. I love the outdoors, my family and my work. I have a lot to learn, and I'm constantly striving to produce my best work yet.
