Drone Photography and Video

MC 589 - Class Number: 12109


Techniques and procedures to use a Small Unmanned Aerial System (Drone) to acquire and produce video and photographic data that can be used for storytelling, mapping and other analyses, with the opportunity to apply and test for the FAA Remote Pilot in Command License. Drones in Media is a one of a kind class where the A.Q. Miller School of Journalism is working closely with Kansans State Polytechnic to offer a course open to all students and colleges at Kansas State University. In this class, core skills students will learn are sUAS operation and flight training, photo and video capturing and editing techniques, professional storytelling practices, sUAS equipment and safety protocols, sUAS privileges and limitations, ethical sUAS practices, aviation weather and hazards, also airport procedures and radio communication for sUAS. Within this class, students will have the opportunity to apply and test for their FAA Remote Pilot in Command License. Successful students will not only leave the class with the skill set to safely and responsibly pilot a sUAS and collect and produce aerial media content. They will do so as a Federally Licensed Commercial sUAS Remote Pilot in Command.
