Shaun Lewis (Student)
"Thank you for this course! I'm struggling to write anything tangible because I'm still mind blown! Just incredible and your YouTube videos complement the course in so many ways. Having only owned a drone for about 3 weeks I'm excited to start putting my new mindset as a film maker into practise. What I love about this course is that it is well segmented and because of that I'm able to refer back to individual videos to help me progress my skills in bitesize chunks. It's not a one-off course, but material to refer to for life."
Mark Kelly (Student)
"Thanks Stewart & Alina! Anyone who has done editing will realise how much time and effort has gone into creating such a comprehensive course. It was structured very logically and is easy to follow with lots of real-world examples. Like others have said, I particularly liked the 5 element ranking methodology to improve each shot. As with photography, the more you practise a way of seeing, the more you tend to do it automatically."
Paul Dawson (Student)
"My wife and I want to add our sincerest gratitude to you both for this outstanding course. It's not enough to say thanks, but you need to know that you are an excellent teacher! You are able to keep the audience engaged in a candid manner - all the while delivering serious jewels of information. I'm looking forward to having the mindset you've so aptly illustrated. We hope this isn't the last offering from you guys as we feel we have somehow gotten to know you both! :)"

No Questions Asked
Money Back Guarantee
On the off-chance Drone Cinematography Masterclass 3.0 doesn't meet your expectations, under our 30 day money back guarantee we will instantly return your money.
How long is the course?
The Masterclass 3.0 contains approximately 9 hours of intensive, aerial filmmaking education.
Is this different from the regulatory courses to gain permissions for commercial operations?
Yes, very much so. Our Masterclass is NOT preparation for a regulatory exam - far from it. Our Masterclass is very popular with pilots who have passed the likes of the FAA exams in the US or the CAA exams in the UK because these courses do not give you filmmaking skills. As such, professional pilots looking to stand out from the pack have found tremendous value in our Masterclass.
Will this course go out of date as new drones come out?
Absolutely not. It will become quickly apparent that this course is NOT about the latest technology, camera settings and flight modes. Quite the opposite. It is about filmmaking principles that have existed for decades and that can now be applied to drone cinematography. The course is timeless, as are the skills you will learn.
Do I need a DJI drone for this course?
No. It is difficult to avoid DJI when talking about drones and certainly we have only ever owned DJI products. That being said, we have done our best to make this course drone agnostic although some of the discussion about settings and such like you will need translate to your own system if your drone is not DJI.
What is NOT included in this course?
This is not a business coaching course so whilst we build your skills to the point at which you can charge for your services, we do not tell you how to get clients and run a drone filming business.
Is this course suitable for complete beginners?
Certainly. The course goes back to basics and teaches you how to fly a drone for the first time so it is perfect for novices. That being said, the course is very fast-paced and quickly moves into more advanced topics. Novices will likely need some time to digest certain parts of the course before moving on.
Do I need special software for the editing section?
By definition, you will need editing software to edit your drone footage but you do not need to use Final Cut Pro X (FCPX) which is the software we use. Much like the filmmaking masterclass, when it comes to editing, it is what you do with it that counts! We teach you concepts and techniques that can be applied across any editing software so the workshop is relevant and applicable for anyone with an interest in improving their editing skills.
When does the course start and finish?
It's up to you! It is a completely self-paced online course so you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
After enrolling, you have access to this course for as long as you like, across any and all devices you own. Since all the videos are downloadable, we would recommend you download a copy to your hard drive for safe keeping.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.
