TLDR: The All-in-One Phantom DJI Drone and Mavic Filmschool Bundle teaches you how to fly your DJI Phantom drone, shoot amazing aerial footage, then edit it to truly world-class results.
Did you see that recent amazing drone footage flying over an active volcano in Iceland? Or maybe that gorgeous aerial shot expertly winding through the Dallas Cowboys’ training facility they used this season on Hard Knocks? It turns out drone photography isn’t just a novelty anymore. It’s truly become art. In fact, bodies are even giving out awards now for brilliant images captured where no human eye could ever go before.
But just as with standard photography, it takes some serious skill to pull off some of these fantastic images and video. And if you think it may not be as easy as your average point and click camera or your iPhone, you’re right.
Of course, it’s isn’t impossible either. With the training in The All-in-One DJI Drone and Mavic Filmschool Bundle ($39.96, over 90 percent off, from TNW Deals), fliers can get the aerial filmmaking education that Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese only dreamed of years ago.
This collection features 7 courses filled with more than 40 hours of intensive instruction in everything it takes to capture incredible images with a drone — and you don’t even need one of those fancy $1,000 models to make it look like a million bucks.
Nearly 40,000 students worldwide have benefited from these courses, starting with some standard training in flying a Phantom Drone, DJI’s popular drone model renowned for both its flight and image capturing abilities.
After getting a feel for the stick, a trio of courses delve into turning your attention to the camera. These Phantom and Mavic Filmschool for DJI Drones courses explore 23 different shots you can do with a drone, from beginner footage all the way up to more complicated maneuvering to get images you never could have captured before. This training offers the path to shooting motion aerial timelapses, railcams, and more.
Once you’ve got the footage, further training in courses like Phantom and Mavic Editing School for DJI Drones presents how to edit your images in apps like Adobe Premiere Pro and DaVinci Resolve to produce professional quality images. There’s even a whole course in using Google Earth to essentially simulate your drone shots before you fly them to help refine your footage and save battery life.
It would normally cost $200 per course to lock down all the training available in The All-in-One Phantom DJI Drone and Mavic Filmschool Bundle. However, this bundle is available now at a fraction of that price, just $39.96.
