If you’re going to use a drone to capture the perfect moment at your next wedding gig, here are a few questions that will keep you out of trouble and your clients happy:

At the risk of upsetting the visual creatives out there, I’m just going to go ahead and call BS on the idea that when it comes to video, music is only kind of important. Like those guests who are kind of important enough to be invited to your wedding, but then find themselves sitting at the kids’ table.

Over the last three decades, I have served as both a Camera Operator on various shoots in San Diego and as a Video Editor. It is good to have experience in both realms because as an Editor you know what to shoot, and as a Shooter you keep in mind all the shots that the Editor will want. “Tape is cheap” is an adage popular during the digital tape days meaning that the camera operator shouldn’t feel constrained about shooting a lot of footage.
