Drone Qualification Course in partnership with ICARUS

Short course



As gear has got smaller, lighter and more sophisticated, Aerial Filming no longer always has to involve expensive helicopters and static cranes. Production companies are increasingly using drones to nail those shots that require dramatic panoramas, adrenaline-filled action sequences, 360-degree views of subjects or literal birds’ eye views.

Unlike full-sized helicopters, drones can also get down to ground level, with smaller shadows and less air disturbance. These are qualities that are particularly useful for TV and Film, to capture everything from a body on the side of the road for a small Independent Film to showing Tower Bridge and the London skyline for BBC News and Television programmes.

Shots like these are impressive; however, without drone technology they would be a lot more complicated – and more expensive.
