Drone use in video production has become par for the course. Dynamic aerial videos are an incredible part of any visual story and as a camera operator I feel privileged to work in such a time. As a FAA Part 107 certified pilot with full liability insurance, I fly aerials both as a director of photography, or as a dedicated aerial camera operator. For many video productions a full time drone team on set is more than is needed and I often include this production component to my role as a camera operator or director of photography. Whether high speed running footage, high alpine scenics, or a unique vantage point, drone aerials are amazingly cost affective way to add value to your video production.
