Boston is DRONELIFE’s hometown – so we can’t wait for this new drone festival!
The following is a guest post by talented Part 107 Pilot and author, Kara Murphy.
BOSDFF, which will include three panel discussions, eight workshops, and two demonstrations, was founded by Jovan Tanasijevic. Tanasijevic is co-founder and director at Above Summit, one of the first production studios specializing in drone cinematography to come out of New England. Their team of drone pilots, videographers, photographers, and editors is responsible for content that has appeared in programs on networks such as AMC, NBC, and Netflix, along with films/TV series including The Society, NOS4A2, and Knives Out.
Submissions are open until September 15th for the following categories:
- Single Take
