Event description

Description

Background
This workshop is sponsored by MULTIDRONE, an EU Horizon 2020 project that is developing an innovative, intelligent, multi-drone platform for media production to cover outdoor events. The goal of Multidrone is to maximise shooting creativity and productivity, whilst minimising production costs. It will deliver a novel cinematographic shooting genre and new media production techniques, allowing the creation of rich/novel media output formats, improved event coverage, adapting to event dynamics and offering rapid reaction speed to unexpected events.

Workshop aims
This workshop will bring together experts in drone cinematography – producers, cinematographers, directors and technologists - to reveal the use and explore the future potential of this exciting and rapidly growing area. We will cover the rules, requirements, tools and constraints of shooting with drones, including the use of multiple drone platforms and autonomous operations.
