What is Aerial Video A to Z?
AVAZ is an online course that’s designed to be your final source to learn Drone Videography – filming, flying, and editing.
Why Should I Sign Up?
Courses are dynamic. When new drones, software, techniques, and equipment come out, AVAZ is updated with tried and true methods to save you time and to show you how to unlock your drone’s real potential.
There is also a community of like-minded drone pilots waiting for you in our Facebook Group where you can discuss drones, share your work, post questions, find out how other people make money and handle job types, or just talk about anything related to aerial video.
Have you ever wondered how some drone pilots are able to work with top-tier clients and brands?
They just seem to be able to create stunning aerial video that looks and feels so professional, stunning, and cinematic (like this…)
You might be tempted to think…
“I could NEVER make something that looks that great.”
I know it can seem overwhelming.
Maybe you’ve thought…
- “How do I stand out when it seems like everyone and their nephew has a drone?”
- “I don’t even know where to start.”
- “What software I should be using for editing?”
- “What settings are best for my drone?”
- “Do I need to be using filters and other tools?”
- “How do I get those smooth movements with my drone?”
- “How do I tweak the color and picture settings in the editing software to get that professional look?”

Over the last few years at Drone Launch Academy, I’ve discovered the key ingredients behind how some drone pilots are able to work only with high-end clients and charge thousands, while others struggle to get by.
Below, I’m going to show you…
- The 2-key differentiators between the uber-successful drone pilots and the ones that merely flounder,
- What you need to do so you don’t have to scrounge for drone jobs going to the lowest bidder, and
- How you can equip yourself to break into the commercial drone space, even if you’re just a hobbyist right now.
I’ve talked to a lot of drone pilots over the years who aren’t satisfied with where they’re at.
They got into the drone industry with big hopes and dreams.
Some were recently retired from their years of hard work and wanted to make some side income by flying drones.
Some were in jobs that paid the bills (but not one they were passionate about) and saw drones as a way to forge a new path into an exciting and lucrative field.
They got some money together, went out and bought the latest DJI drone, set it up and learned how to fly it around without killing any innocent bystanders, maybe they filmed a cool video of their kids or grandkids playing soccer.
Then they went out to try to find some of this fabled and luxurious “drone pilot work”!
Maybe you’ve tried some of their approaches…
You walk up to a real estate agent and offer to take some drone photos and video of a listing they have. The real estate agent asks you how much you charge. You tell them your price. They get back to you and say, “well, my friend’s 14-year-old nephew just got a drone and he can do it for half the price. Sorry.”
Or maybe you head over to one of the popular drone job sites on the internet. Clients just lining up to give you work? Sounds great!
But then you look at the payouts… $50 to take some photos of a property that’s an hour away. $100 to shoot some video that’s going to take you half a day with drive time.
At that rate you might be better off getting a job at your local fast food joint.
(Don’t get me wrong, at the very beginning, it might be worth taking some of those low paying gigs so you can get some flying experience and test out the waters.)
But you aren’t going to make a satisfying living doing that type of work. And did you really jump into the drone industry to be making peanuts on small gigs?
What if there was a way where you didn’t have to compete with the 14-year-old nephew with a drone?
Or scrounge for low paying drone gigs on the internet?
Because the clients you’ll be able to get don’t shop solely on price. They shop on quality. They know that they get what they pay for, and they know you have the skill and expertise to deliver what they want.
How do you make a drone business like that a reality?
That’s why we created Aerial Video A to Z.
Your complete guide to shooting, editing, and profiting from epic aerial video (even if you’re just a beginner).
Here are a few screenshots from the course…
In Aerial Video A to Z you’ll learn…
- What type of equipment (computers, software, drones) you do AND don’t need;
- How to tweak the settings on your drone to capture the best looking picture (we cover all of the most popular DJI models and give you applicable advice, even if you have a different drone);
- The basic of video: resolution, frame rate, the difference between .mp4 and .mov file formats and when is best to use each;
- Pre-flight planning and how to avoid amateur mistakes;
- Flying, filming, and cinematography – teaching you what to aim for and how to capture those super smooth drone shots;
- How to CORRECTLY film slow motion footage;
- Step-by-step walkthroughs of the editing software, so you know EXACTLY what to do and where to go (so it’s not overwhelming);
- Pro tricks for speeding up the editing process and workarounds for dealing with 4k footage (note: 4k footage traditionally takes a LONG time to work with since its so big…but we have a shortcut);
- Advanced editing techniques like…
- How to arrange your footage to be the most visually appealing and keep viewers engaged;
- How to fix shots when something ugly is in the corner of your frame;
- How to fix shaky footage so it’s still usable;
- The right way to put in titles, logos, and other graphic items;
- How to go from flat and bland footage to video that pops with the perfect color balance;
- Salvaging footage that is too bright (overexposed) or too dark (underexposed);
- Adding music – where to find it, how to line it up with your video for maximum impact; and
- How to export your work so that its shareable but still maintains great quality.
AND, as an added bonus…
We included a COMPLETE job shadow walkthrough where Alex takes you along a live shoot so you can see his workflow from start to finish.
(Flying, filming, editing, color correcting, effects, exporting…the whole thing).
