  • Published by Ozgur Tore

drone filmingDrones are increasingly becoming integrated into contemporary life and are used for a wide range of industrial applications. For the filming and movie making industry however, the benefits of using a drone are extraordinary, with aerial film making fast becoming a respected and valued practice.

The UK’s leading training academy for drone piloting is extending their airborne offering this spring, as UAVAir announce the launch of their Aerial Video Editing course.

The innovative course is one of the first of its kind and for anyone wanting to get a step ahead the competition, it is set to prepare those who attend with invaluable and highly sought after skills in the developing filming industry. The course will take place Bourneville College in Birmingham on Saturday 28th May. Places are limited, so those interested in furthering their career are urged to sign up soon.

UAVAir has been giving pilots across the UK the skills and certifications required to fly an aerial vehicle safely and professionally for since 2015, and are further helping to expand the standard of the commercial drone industry with the addition of their new course.

Ben Keene, Operations Director commented “Many directors and production companies are impressed with the wide range of shots that using a drone can bring to them, however, employing a professional with the legal certifications and practical skills to do so can be difficult. We aim to help this sector thrive, by giving certified drone pilots the opportunity to learn a tangible skill that can see them further their airborne career and entering into this flourishing industry. Designed for those with limited or no knowledge of digital editing, our experts will make sure those who attend will leave the day with the capabilities of seeing a filming project through, from flight to final cut”.

The training course this May is instructed by leading industry professionals Lee O’Connell and Michael Surcombe who have honed their skills working on projects for respected organisations ranging from Apple Education to BBC News.
