Drones are arguably the single most important technological development for film and television in the last 25 years. Today nearly every feature film, television show or commercial production is using drone-mounted cameras. No other creative pursuit is as complex and rewarding. Drone artists today need to master the delicate balance of unmanned aerial flight (aviation), photography and rapidly evolving government regulations.
This course will be a deep dive into drone photography and cinematography as a modern art form and multidirectional career opportunity. The course will cover multi-rotor drone flight, remote camera operation, as well as the complex nature of composing and executing shots in a number of challenging real-world environments.
