We are currently adding to the sessions, below is a taste of what to expect and do check back for more...


Hands on a UAV



Under the expert instruction of RUSTA why not come along and fly a drone (UAV) over the Bristol City Football pitch! You'll be looked after every step of the way with guidance and top tips in flying these aircraft from one of the leading training academies in the country from take off and landing to inflight control. No other pro-video or broadcast show in the UK gives you this opportunity!



Getting the most out of On-Camera Audio



You only notice sound when it’s wrong. The eyes are far more forgiving than the ears and about 90% of the information we receive from television is in the audio. Try watching the news with no sound, then turn it up and turn away and see which method works better.


We easily notice perspective when the audio doesn’t match the shot. Imagine standing at a party trying to hear your friend across the room. The brain cleverly uses all the visual senses to bring out the meaning but microphones are not that clever. We can zoom in to fill the frame, but if you are using the camera mic you will just hear the party and the audio will not match.

So you want to do Aerial filming?



Enter RUSTA - a CAA approved National Qualified Entity (NQE). RUSTA conducts training of the highest safety standard in the UK for Small Unmanned Air Systems (SUAS) operators that wish to obtain Permission for Commercial Operation (PfCO) from the CAA. RUSTA was conceived in 2014 to counter demands for SUAS training requirements due to the exponential growth in the SUAS industry.


Their team of experienced UAV instructors and assessors are all from ex-military Aircrew Instructional backgrounds, and they love what they do!


In this session you will learn what YOU need to do to comply with current legislation with UAV / Drone filming and discover why training is not just about compliance but also about getting the best shots out there!
