Alexander Harris – Aerial Video A to Z 2021
Description of Aerial Video A to Z 2021
AVAZ is an online course that’s designed to be your final source to learn Drone Videography – filming, flying, and editing, then how to get views and market.
Have you ever wondered how some drone pilots are able to work with top-tier clients and brands?
They just seem to be able to create stunning aerial video that looks and feels so professional, stunning, and cinematic (like this above^)
You might be tempted to think…
“I could NEVER make something that looks that great.”
I know it can seem overwhelming.
Maybe you’ve thought…
- “How do I stand out when it seems like everyone and their nephew has a drone?”
- “I don’t even know where to start.”
- “What software I should be using for editing?”
- “What settings are best for my drone?”
- “Do I need to be using filters and other tools?”
- “How do I get those smooth movements with my drone?”
- “How do I tweak the color and picture settings in the editing software to get that professional look?”
If you’ve ever had thoughts like these, keep reading…
Over the last few years at Drone Launch Academy, I’ve discovered the key ingredients behind how some drone pilots are able to work only with high-end clients and charge thousands, while others struggle to get by.
Below, I’m going to show you…
- The 2-key differentiators between the uber-successful drone pilots and the ones that flop about and drown
- What you need to do so you don’t have to scrounge for drone jobs going to the lowest bidder, and
- How you can equip yourself to break into the commercial drone space, even if you’re just a hobbyist right now.
- I’ve talked to a lot of drone pilots over the years who aren’t satisfied with where they’re at.
They got into the drone industry with big hopes and dreams.
- Some were recently retired from their years of hard work and wanted to make some side income by flying drones.
- Some were in jobs that paid the bills (but not one they were passionate about) and saw drones as a way to forge a new path into an exciting and lucrative field.
- They got some money together, went out and bought the latest DJI drone, set it up and learned how to fly it around without killing any innocent bystanders, maybe they filmed a cool video of their kids or grandkids playing soccer.
- Then they went out to try to find some of this fabled and luxurious “drone pilot work”!
How do you make a drone business like that a reality?
I mentioned before that I’ve had the opportunity to talk with tons of drone pilots over the year, and I’ve seen TWO key ingredients that separates the uber-successful from the ones that struggle.
Ingredient #1: Uber-successful drone pilots know that owning a drone and being able to fly it doesn’t make them special.
They know that it’s WHAT THEY CAN CREATE from what the drone captures that makes them special.
Just like cooking… anyone can go out and buy the raw ingredients (maybe some beef short-ribs and asparagus?), but not everyone can run a high-end restaurant that charges $300 per person for that dish.
If you or I tried to cook up some beef short-ribs and asparagus and sell it to a hungry crowd, we could maybe get $20 for it.
What’s the difference between us and the world-class chef that charges $300 for something made from the same raw ingredients? That chef has dedicated his time and energy into INTENTIONALLY honing his craft, where he can create something that people love. Something that no one else can create.
The same is true with drones. With the proper training and effort, you can learn to create something beautiful, something that wows people, something that the “14-year-old” nephew isn’t able to create, even though you both have the same “raw materials.”
You INTENTIONALLY honed your craft. You are a true professional.
You’ll be able to create things like this…
Uber-successful drone pilots are able to effectively get the word out about their work and win business. They make beautiful, eye-catching demo reels, tailored specifically for their ideal client, and they are able to build genuine relationships that are founded on trust.
But before you can tackle ingredient #2, you have to master ingredient #1.
We know there are plenty of people out there that WANT a successful drone business and are WILLING to put in the work. They want to master the skills necessary to have an uber-successful drone business.
They just want some guidance. They just need to know how to get started.
That’s why we created Aerial Video A to Z.
Your complete guide to shooting, editing, and profiting from epic aerial video (even if you’re just a beginner).
In Aerial Video A to Z you’ll learn…
- What type of equipment (computers, software, drones) you do AND don’t need;
- How to tweak the settings on your drone to capture the best looking picture (we cover all of the most popular DJI models and give you applicable advice, even if you have a different drone);
- The basic of video: resolution, frame rate, the difference between .mp4 and .mov file formats and when is best to use each;
- Pre-flight planning and how to avoid amateur mistakes;
- Flying, filming, and cinematography – teaching you what to aim for and how to capture those super smooth drone shots;
- How to CORRECTLY film slow motion footage;
- Step-by-step walkthroughs of the editing software, so you know EXACTLY what to do and where to go (so it’s not overwhelming);
- Pro tricks for speeding up the editing process and workarounds for dealing with 4k footage (note: 4k footage traditionally takes a LONG time to work with since its so big…but we have a shortcut);
- Advanced editing techniques like…
- How to arrange your footage to be the most visually appealing and keep viewers engaged;
- How to fix shots when something ugly is in the corner of your frame;
- How to fix shaky footage so it’s still usable;
- The right way to put in titles, logos, and other graphic items;
- How to go from flat and bland footage to video that pops with the perfect color balance;
- Salvaging footage that is too bright (overexposed) or too dark (underexposed);
- Adding music – where to find it, how to line it up with your video for maximum impact; and
- How to export your work so that its shareable but still maintains great quality.
