The Convergence of FPV Drones in Entertainment

Recording: The Convergence of FPV Drones in Entertainment, Date TBA

First Person View Drones is still in its infancy, yet it is producing interesting new takes in the worlds of Music, Sports, and Cinematic Media. We have seen small organized local races in a handful of cities on any given weekend, to incredibly well produced and coordinated racing series travel the world with pilots competing to win money and in some cases, Professional Pilot contracts to start their career. Youtube and Facebook have created communities with 10's of thousands of members communicating 24 hours a day about content creation, racing, building, and just life. Many pilots have found begun making careers in becoming celebrity pilots while traveling the globe creating unique and creative content. From music videos, action sports, and TV Ads, new perspectives are converging.
