Drone Law and Regulation Workshop
USA, 2018, 45 min., Color, English
LIMITED SEATING MUST RSVP @ A briefing about the laws and regulations that apply to using drones in filmmaking. Ron will help filmmakers understand the public concerns about safety, privacy, and pilot proficiency, and explain some of the relevant laws that need to be observed to avoid legal problems during aerial shoots. Additionally, he will provide insight into which drones are best suited for productions, and offer guidelines that will help producers decide whether they want to become FAA-approved drone pilots, or just hire FAA-approved pilots as part of their production crew.
