Smart phones, drones and other modern technology devices make it possible for anyone to take a picture or video and thus easily become an author, camera operator, and director of a video product. But are all such products really good? Every photo/video product has its execution cycle, and, if we ignore it, the product will probably not be "good". The technology, therefore, is not sufficient criterion for an esthetic, socially and legally acceptable film.
The workshop will provide a chance to discuss approaches to planning and executing a photo/video product, followed by a demonstration of how to program and use mini drones in the creation of a video.
Visitors will be actively involved in the entire process, as actors or camera operators. How well they will do is not as important as the realization that everything starts out with quality contents, and continues through careful recording, directing, and editing, especially if the movie of photograph is going to be published publicly – even if only on social networks.
