My ExperienceSince starting at Heliguy six months ago, I’ve had the opportunity to learn a lot about the drone industry, but I’ve also been given the opportunity to expand on my existing skills. On 24th August I sat in on one of the drone video editing courses to improve my ability to produce and edit promotional footage, here’s what I thought of the training. Before I attended the Drone Video Editing Course to learn some tricks of the trade from Jon Stubbs, I had already become mildly familiar (or so I thought) with Adobe Premiere Pro. With our course aiming to teach the fundamentals I mistakenly thought that I would already have an understanding of the majority of what was covered due to my time researching the program myself. I was quickly proved wrong. Within the first hour of the training, I had learned techniques which have the potential to half the time it takes me to produce a professional quality video with Premiere Pro. Ranging from nifty keyboard shortcuts to more advanced techniques that Jon has developed through his experience with the program, you’re certain to leave with a better understanding of not only simple editing but also the benefits of composition and pacing. Jon is a brilliant course leader who runs through his points clearly and is very patient and willing to reiterate anything that has been covered should you need clarification. This isn’t a rigidly structured day of ticking boxes, it has been designed to allow you to ask questions, interact and learn in a way that suits you. I found this approach hugely beneficial and the other trainees I spoke with after the course stated that it had been a hugely educational experience and would definitely improve their planned commercial showreels. Note: You will be sent a PDF outlining the main course criteria so you won't miss out on anything The Heliguy course promises to explain the basics of drone video editing for business and, in my opinion, it more than meets its stated goals.
Key TakeawaysHere are what I consider to be the 5 key takeaways from the course. This will vary from trainee to trainee as the range of criteria covered is very impressive for a single day course.
- Shooting for the edit
- Streamlining workflows
- Cutting to music tracks
- Professional-quality footage editing
- Useful time-saving tips
