VidMuze, the North Carolina-based aerial cinematography production company announced on Wednesday that they have published the first in depth, online video tutorial series to teach the masses about the science of drone piloting and the art of aerial videography. The 4.5 hour tutorial is broken down into 24 episodes and will run you $140 for the Lite version (which is currently on sale for $119) and $299 for the Pro version (which give the user access to private support forums and future updates/tutorials).
“Most RC pilots know very little about cinematography. Likewise, most filmmakers know little about flying drones,” said James Suttles, gimbal operator and cinematographer for VidMuze, in Wednesday’s press release. The objective of the videos is to combine all that knowledge in one place.
The video series is also meant to instruct pilots on the rules of flying, safety tips, back-up systems and proper UAS etiquette.
“The technology is exciting, and often people start flying without understanding the safety rules and regulations,” explained VidMuze founder Mike Gentilini, Jr, “Safety is a top priority in the aerial cinema industry.”
