Over the summer semester at CSUF, I enrolled in COMM 438T, an Alternative Video Reporting course with the use of Go Pros and drones. It was one of my best classes so far, for being a 5th year college student.
I learned a lot about creating a story and using new avenues within the multi media realm to broaden my reporting capabilities. From editing on my phone adding voiceovers to creating aerial images that further develop the story.
Our class went out to Champions Park and set up the drone to learn the basics of the system, from how to start it up, the initial process for beginning users, and navigation.
This is just one of the many stories created: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mp519WOWMz0
Another drone report we created took place in Carbon Canyon park we used the UV lens and it created a darker image than we anticipated. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ni5jv_479g0
