About This Class

Learn advanced drone videography techniques to take your aerial footage to the next level. This 50-minute class — the second installment from Wild Rabbit Productions and DJI — covers how to create a narrative by planning and executing a film shoot with a moving subject. Looking to add a pro touch to your video projects? This class is for you.

Class lessons include:

  • Building a narrative
  • Scouting locations and subjects
  • Crafting a storyboard and shot list
  • Shooting with dual operators (pilot + camera)
  • Capturing the shots
  • Making footage selections

To get started, you'll need a drone with a video camera (the DJI Inspire 1 is used in this class but not required) and familiary with basic video editing software*.

By the end, you'll plan, shoot, and finalize a video piece ideal for your portfolio, to garner new business as a freelancer, or simply to level up your drone filming capabilities. 

*Please note that this class does not include a lesson on video editing, as it focuses entirely on the planning and executing of a full film production
