Taking Flight Creative LiveIn the past two years, the aerial cinematography industry has really taken off (get it?). What was once only an option for people with sky-high budgets (okay, I’ll stop) now has a delightful low-cost for entry-level equipment. With that said, piloting drones and snapping off great shots is far more complicated than owning the right gear.

A webinar with VFX artist & colorist Jerome Thelia details just such a process, regarding the Oscar-winning short film Curfew. Read on for details. More »

All of which makes it very exciting to report that the next Avid Pro Video Webinar will feature none other than the post team of Bad Robot themselves, bringing you behind the scenes of their processes and workflows — and from the looks of things, specifically regarding CEO J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness. More »
