Who is this course for?

YOU!

It's designed for people who want to take their skills to the next level and start to produce video content with their drone that looks like it was shot professionally. It's about getting out of automatic and shooting as professionals do, manually controlling all settings to get the look you want, not what the camera thinks you want!

How long will the course take?

There is over 2 hours of video content as well as quizzes and reading material. The course is broken down into short videos so you can do the course in your own time and at your leisure. You can do the course on desktop, mobile, and tablet as long as you have an internet connection.
