I just wanted to make a quick post about how much Drone Secrets has helped me in changing my stars. I don't come from a film or photography background. In fact, before I got a drone I didn't know anything about ISO, frame rate, shutter speed, f-stop or anything like that. I had never edited a video or picture. I've never really felt like I was a creative person. Well, I joined Drone Secrets after I got a drone as a hobby. Thank you, Chris, for putting together such an awesome course and sharing your knowledge with us! You are a giant among men. To those who are just getting started: This course works! You need to always be teachable. Be willing to learn. Use the awesome resources we have. Practice, learn, make mistakes, experiment, ask questions, just TRY. If you're willing to put the time and effort in, it will pay off in the end.

By far the best training on the market to take your drone cinematography skills from beginner to pro by teaching you all the secrets from a working Pro!! You will learn all of the setting, tips, tricks, and see it in action! Learn all of the top cinematography drone shots that will make you stand out from the rest! I highly recommend all of the drone courses at Drone Pro Academy!

I just want to thank Chris Newman yet again as I just did my 1st Art Show in Montauk a few weeks ago and my BEST selling print so far since I started doing photography 2 and a half years ago (I've always strictly been a video guy for about 18 years as that's why I got into flying a drone) is the Aerial Panoramic picture I took with my drone of the Montauk Lighthouse on Long Island, NY. I've already sold about 40 of these pictures and it has made me a lot of money so far and I'm just getting started. This course was one of the BEST decisions I've made in getting into aerial video/photography and it has already made me money from what I have learned as I didn't even know you could do aerial panoramic pictures! Thanks again to Chris and everyone on this FB forum for creating a community of drone pilots that are so willing to help each other succeed!

My name is Chris Newman, I've been in video production since 2004, I started flying remote control heli's in 2010 with the hopes of putting a camera on one.  In 2011 I bought the first drone that could carry a camera called the Cinestar 8.   After lots of trial and error, I got into the groove and I've worked all around the world for major brands such as Disney Plus, Netflix, IMAX, Ford, Subaru, National Geographic, Mazda, Lexus, BBC, McDonalds, Air Canada, Mercedes, KFC, Animal Planet, Sony and Dolby Digital. 

Since 2014 Through Drone Pro Academy  I've trained tens of thousands of other drone pilots and help them create epic cinematic shots and get the most out of their drones! 
In addition to creating some of the world's best resources for budding drone pilots, I still run my drone business CineChopper and service our clients today. 

Here's some of my recent work:
Will this work for beginners?

Yes! The course starts with the very basics of starting with your drone, then moves on to more advanced cinematic drone techniques and breakdowns. Great for the beginner or someone who's already been flying for years!

What kind of drone do I have to use?

I primarily use DJI drones for the course but I’ve designed this course so that the principles can be applied to any drone with a camera.  

What If I don't have a drone yet? 
That's ok!  You can get started by in this course by learning what drones I recommend and start learning before you get a drone.  

How will I get access to the content?
