Are there requirements to take the text?

  • If you would like to try the editing techniques that are demonstrated using the provided raw footage then get access to some video editing software such as FCPX or Adobe Premiere.
  • The course highlights some typical areas of legal regulation for flying and filming with a drone though it is not the primary focus of the course.

It is expected that the students will, through their own research, become thoroughly familiar with the regulations in their own country – they will need to do this anyway in an ongoing basis as the laws are changing regularly.
