    Drone Masterclass

    Go from novice to shooting like a professional

    Learn everything you need, to perform the best and safest flights, to become a professional drone pilot.

    Learn from Matt Williams (Mr MPW) through this E-Learning course, how to professionally conduct safe drone flight operations and how to capture stunning footage with your drone.

    What will I learn?

    This course has been designed from the ground up (pun intended) to show and teach your production techniques used by professional operators. Below you'll find an outline of the modules you will be taught on the course.

    This course is delivered by Matt WIiliams (Mr MPW) who is the industry leader in drone flight operations, having specialised in heavy lift operations for film and TV as well as live sports broadcast.

    If you already didn't know what you can and can't do with a drone you will by the end of this first module. We'll take a look at the CAA regulations in the UK and how, as professional operator, we avoid collisions with other vessels & structures.
    In this module we'll take you through the different types of drones you may find on the market. We'll take you through the pro's and cons of a variety of drones and their applications.
    We'll take you through how to correctly set up your aircraft for its first flight. You'll also be taken through spare parts and maintenance.
    If you've never flown before, this module will show you everything from choosing an idea take-off point & checking airspace. We'll go through the control stick layout of a typical drone controller and we'll then get you off the ground for the first time.
    This is where we'll show you how to fly correctly and safely. You'll be shown and guided through a series of manoeuvres that will refine your skills and allow you to correctly orientate the aircraft when in the sky.
    Now that you've mastered how to safely fly your drone, we'll now take you through how to make the most out of the camera settings. This is all about getting out of automatic and start shooting film like a professional. You;ll learn all about what affects exposure, why white balance is so important and what key settings you should be using to make sure you deliver technically sound footage.
    Now that you can fly safely and you understand how to shoot footage correctly for your clients, we now pull all of this together and show you a number of shots you can achieve with your Drone. These are the types of shots we shoot on film sets, and what you may get asked to capture by your own clients. By the end of this, you will truly be shooting like a pro.

    Who is this course for?

    This course is designed for people who have little to no experience flying a drone. It's designed for people who want to take their skills to the next level and start to produce video content with their drone that looks like it was shot professioanlly. It's about getting out of automatic and shooting as professionals do, manually controlling all settings to get the look you want, not what the camera thinks you want.

    How big is the course?

    There is over 2 hours of video content as well as quizzes and reading material, and we'll be adding extra materials into the course over time. The course is broken down into short videos so you can do the course in your own time and at your leisure. You can do the course on desktop, mobile and tablet as long as you have an internet connection.
