Workshop: movie-making 101: drone videography

In recent years, drone filming has moved from trend to a required skill used in everyday cinematography. With so many technological innovations, aerial video footage is now accessible at a fraction of the cost – we no longer need to rent a helicopter to shoot the world from above! Skilfully piloted drones can capture stunning images from a bird’s eye perspective, while saving time and money. 

In this 90-minute workshop, participants will be introduced to the wonders of drone cinematography through both theoretical and practical learning. Key topics to be explored include choosing the right drone for your project, techniques to enhance your viewer’s visual experience, and how to become a certified drone operator.
