With the availability of powerful remote controlled drones and a range of small high resolution cameras to mount onto them,aerial cinematography has become another tool in the visual storyteller's arsenal.
However before using these in productions it is useful to know the safety aspects and limitations of these devices. Once these are adequately understood the next step is to actually learn to pilot these devices.
This 2 day course is designed to provide a firm grounding in the legal and safety issues of drone use as well as to provide a basic grounding in the operation of a drone for the purpose of video production.
