Overview

PDT-LSurvUas-07

Drone (sUAS) Videography & Photography

The small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS), or drone, is emerging as a powerful video and photography platform for both professional and hobbyist videographers, photographers, artists, scientists, and storytellers. This 3-day course will prepare students to capture and edit aerial photos and video footage using the latest drone technology and video editing software. The first day of this course will be spent outside capturing photos and video footage with drones. The second day will focus on editing photography & footage in a computer lab environment. The third day will allow students to continue capturing footage, editing footage or both.

 

Students will receive training in video camera setup, camera maneuvers, shooting practices, pre and post production planning and film editing. In addition, the course will review safe flying practices with an emphasis on current FAA airspace regulations, rules and privacy concerns.
