New Mexico's third-annual Albuquerque Film & Music Experience (AFME), taking place June 1-7, will feature a drone technology workshop this year.
On Thursday, June 4, Drone University will be showcasing the possibilities of aerial cinematography. The intermediate/advanced workshop will cover safety and some of the basics of drone cinematography, but the majority of the focus will be on higher-level, shot-specific techniques.
Attendees will also experience cinema-copter demos and work as part of a two-person camera drone team with FPV goggles and advanced monitoring tools.
Created and executively produced by Ivan Wiener, AFME's mission is to bring people together through the power of film, music and the arts. The weeklong event features opportunities for attendees to engage with filmmakers, actors and artists from around the world.
‘It's one of our goals to continue to inspire and grow the future generation of artists and entertainers,’ says Wiener. ‘By engaging in the types of panels and workshops we offer, everyone will benefit as a filmmaker, artist or artist-entrepreneur, or simply expand their entertainment experience by hearing from industry professionals.’
