Drones in Film Making Workshop (November 30, 2019)

Events / Workshops

This workshop is designed to give a high level overview of using various types and sizes of RPAS aircraft for film or commercial production. This workshop will discuss information regarding Transport Canada current regulations, qualifications and aircraft requirements for flights in controlled and uncontrolled airspace. In addition to the regulatory information, this workshop will also provide an overview of the technical components of a typical multi-rotor and fixed wing system and will discuss in detail the various types of multi-rotor systems available and their strengths and weaknesses as aircraft and as a shooting platform.

This workshop will also discuss the use of photogrammetry and laser scanning from an RPAS and uses for the resulting 3d realty capture data through-out production. We will discuss the types of aircraft capable of reality capture and will provide an overview of the field work and processing required to produce quality 3d models.

This workshop intends on providing a solid overview of using RPAS in production. It focuses on the technical aspects of the aircraft itself, the regulatory requirements, and other potential uses for RPAS in production. It focuses less so on the various types of cameras or other payloads.

The workshop will be conducted on Nov.30th
