Sky High Filming Course
The NFTS is launching the UK's first drone cinematography short course...

T

he National Film and Television School (NFTS)
is partnering with Aerial Motion Pictures, the
Oxfordshire-based company that pioneered the
UK's first Independent Commercial Drone Training
Course, to launch the UK's first drone cinematography
short course aimed at film and television industry
professionals.
The Drone Qualification Course In Partnership with
Aerial Motion Pictures (AMP) Home of Fly ICARUS
(International Certificate of Approval for Remote
Unmanned Systems.)
Commercial Drone Training School (the inaugural
course was held May 22 - 24) provides expert advice,
theory and practical experience to help camera
operators and directors of photography to get closer
to the action than ever before.
The three-day course has been crafted by Matt
Williams, Managing Director of Aerial Motion
Pictures, and his colleague, Operations Director
Callum Bannister, specifically to appeal to film and
television professionals.
Williams said: "It is fantastic to be partnering with
the NFTS whose reputation speaks for itself. We
know ourselves through our own aerial production
work that getting as close to the action as possible
is easier and more cost-effective using a drone
operated camera than a traditional crane. But
without the proper training, it's impossible to fully
understand what a UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle)
is capable of capturing or to get the permissions
needed to operate legally."

Bannister added: "This new course has been
tailored specifically to cover all the relevant technical
know-how as well as practical advice needed to
operate a drone successfully for commercial film and
TV purposes."
Head of NFTS Short Courses, Peter Ansorge, said:
"We're delighted to partner with AMP to deliver this
exciting new short course, the first of its kind aimed
at film and television industry professionals. As use

cases for drones increase, it is essential that film and
television professionals get to grips with what they
can accomplish with this kind of equipment and how
to operate it safely and legally."
Aerial Motion Pictures (AMP) was founded by
Matt Williams two years ago and has gone on to
become the standard setter for the unmanned aerial
operations industry.
Williams, together with his ever-expanding
team, applies his aviation know-how, passion
for technology, and exacting safety standards to
capturing and delivering gimbal stabilized footage
from the air and ground using a variety of cuttingedge technologies.
With one of the widest ranges of aerial kit available,
and as the founders of the first CAA-accredited drone
training courses, AMP has also established itself as
the UK's premier providers of aerial footage for the
film and TV industries.

The National Film and Television School
T

he NFTS is one of the world's leading film, games
and television schools. It has been cited by some
media, as one of the top five film schools globally and
by one as the No.1 international film school.
In 1967, the UK Government recommended the
creation of a national film school for the country and
in 1971 the National Film School opened its doors for
the first time, focusing on postgraduate education.
In the 1980s, the school officially changed its
name to the National Film and Television School to
incorporate the demand for courses in television
production and has since added games to its remit.
NFTS prides itself on producing world-class,
award-winning industry leaders. It has more Student

Academy Awards (Foreign Category) than any other
film school. NFTS students and graduates also
regularly win BAFTAs and have won the short film
category for the last three years. Other prestigious
accolades include the Grierson Award for Best
Student Documentary, which NFTS students have
won for the last three years as well as multiple
Royal Television Society student awards and Annecy
Animation Awards.
NFTS graduates have gone on to win seven
Oscars and 100 BAFTAs with alumni including:
Cinematographer, Roger Deakins (12 times Oscar
nominee); BAFTA winning Director, David Yates,
(best known for directing the Harry Potter films);

Oscar winning Animator Nick Park (creator of
Wallace & Gromit) and Oscar winning Composer
Dario Marianelli.
