Being a Drone Pilot for a Hollywood Movie Set

Recommended Posts

Great article @Philip Moore. Thanks for sharing. 

We offer another case study on what it takes to be a serious drone cinematographer. Check out our interview with Mike Mazur, a former Drone Pilot Ground School student and owner of Diario Films: https://uavcoach.com/diario-films-interview/

He started out working in Manhattan in post-production. From there he learned about shooting and directing, and built up his skill set to the point where he is now, as the owner of his own production company, Diario Films. Mike has worked with artists like Kesha and Steely Dan, and he’s also flown missions for non-profits in Guatemala and elsewhere around the world.

"One thing I did that helped me get work, and really distinguish myself, was that when I upgraded my cinematography services and started adding drone services as well, I made sure to send out emails to my contacts and let them know, and share my aerial reel," Mike told UAV Coach.
