Why take this course?
Here you'll learn how to make an authentic aerial production. To get the most out of your drone and your camera, first you should understand the components that each of them has, and how they work, in order to get very specific results, that will make you discover a new world.
Based on the negative and positive experiences from all my productions already made, and adding many of the questions that users ask me, you'll learn a new air language. I'll put you in the situations that you'll face, and you'll learn ways to solve them.
Above all, this course is about telling a story. Do you ever get tired of seeing landscapes and more landscapes no matter how pretty they are? It's time to learn what a story is, what elements it has, and especially how to apply them to aerial footage. This course is a pioneer in applying fiction exclusively to this type of recording.
You'll be joining a closed Telegram group for students where you'll be able to post your footage and get instant feedback from other students and the instructor.
"As a beginner, and with my DJI Mini 2, I never thought I could improve my films that much. I am SO thankful that I came across Alex's course. I've learned so many new things, techniques, tools and shots, that I literally went from deceptive videos to decent productions within a few weeks. I can only recommend this course to anyone seeking to understand the power of a well-developed story, the mastering of your drone and all its settings, plus knowing how to edit your videos with great colors and appropriate music. If I could give you 100 stars I would Alex. For those who don't know him, he's a very kind instructor always answering students doubts and questions. What a nice experience this has been. ★★★★★" Higashami N., [Feb. 2022]

Hi everyone, my name is Alex Assenmacher, I'm 32 years old, born in Barcelona, Spain, and I'm a professional filmmaker, including aerial videography.
My professional adventure started in Vancouver, Canada, by the age of 17. I studied a Master in Art and Communication Media, which I continued doing later in San Diego, California.
Being 19 years old, I returned to Barcelona to study a cinematography college degree, which I finished 4 years ago in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Fortunately I have been able to travel a lot and work in many different countries with really distinguished cultures such as Germany, Brazil, Canada, the US, or Spain, surrounded always by professionals that taught me (and still do) everything I know today.
I've been hosting and producing the WETALKUAV channel on Youtube for the past 5 years, best job in the world :). A drone channel where we test, review, and do a lot of stuff with drones.
I'm really happy that platforms such as Udemy give us the opportunity to keep growing and teaching our experiences. I'm really happy to be teaching part of my knowledge.

See you inside!!
