Media Asylum is pleased to announce our 2018 lineup of aerial filmmaking courses, including a new Advanced Drone Pilot course, aimed at advanced users and commerical drone operations.

Media ASYLUM’s Aerial Filmmaking courses have drawn both media professionals and serious hobbyists, quickly making it one of the more popular courses on offer at Media ASYLUM.

The 5-day Intermediate course covers both technical skills and the aesthetic aspects of aerial filmmaking. Participants learn to plan for a drone flight, taking into consideration both safety and regulatory constraints. Everyone gets lots of flight time, both day and night, as well as time on a drone flight simulator!

Participants also learn basic storytelling and cinematography aesthetics that apply to aerial shots, and these are complemented with knowledge of handling the recorded footage in post production

This year, we add an Advanced Drone Pilot Course, an extensive 4-day hands-on course which focuses on Advanced flight manoeuvring and camera operations, as well as more detailed maintenance practices. It also focuses on the more extensive CAAS rules that surround commercial drone operations and helps participants prepare for various CAAS licenses.

Media Asylum works with 3 of Singapore most qualified drone pilots and trainers – Roy Pwee, Victor Go and Jose De Castro, who are all CAAS licensed UAV pilots with extensive experience in both flying and training. 

Both the Intermediate and Advanced courses are approved under the IMDA Talent Assistance (Training) Grant scheme, which means that Singaporeans and Singaporean Permanent Residents are eligible for up to 90% subsidy on course fees (subject to IMDA terms and conditions).

These courses are very popular, so register early if you are interested in attending.
