Tips for Shooting Video With a Drone

By: Jason Stepanek, Web Content and Video Manager

Drones are everywhere now and used on all types of video productions. Just a few years ago you had to rent a helicopter with a very expensive camera attached to it to get the same shots now achieved by drones. Drones provide a unique angle and make a great addition to any video shoot at a fraction of the cost.

If you plan on using a drone for your company video, it’s required by law to make sure the drone operator is FAA licensed and has aerial insurance. If they are not properly licensed, you could face fines or penalties up to $5,000. Plus, a professional drone operator knows the limitations of restricted airspace and makes sure that a safe flight is conducted.

Once you have all the safety measures and certifications in place, using a drone for your video can be a lot of fun. Just make sure you’re putting safety first and then go out there and make some movie magic.

  1. Thank you for the point you make that any drone needs to be licenced with the FFA to be flown in the USA. Last thing I would want is to be fined for something so simple to get a licence for. I’ll be sure to register my drone if I ever go to fly it outside to get some awesome videos.
