Taking DJI's Phantom 4 drone for a ride
By Brady Betzel

I’ve been trying to get my hands on a professional drone to review for a few years now. My wife even got me a drone from a local store that was a ton of fun to play with but was hard to master.  For years, I’ve been working on television shows that use drone footage and capture incredible imagery, but it always seemed out of reach for me as an editor. Finally, after much persistence (or pestering, depending on who you ask), DJI agreed to send me the Phantom 4 to test out, and boy is it awesome!

By now you’ve probably made your way through the ubiquitous reviews, including the endless supply of YouTube reviews, but in that small chance you are reading this without much prior drone knowledge and work in production or post production, I have some ideas for you.

When reading this review, think about how you could take a drone, run outside and maybe grab some b-roll for something you are working on. If you create opening titles or sizzle reels, you could grab some great aerial shots or fast-paced shots to use as transitions. The possibilities are really endless, as long as you get your video picture settings dialed in.

Before I started as an online editor (which, for those who don’t know, focuses on the technical side of editing — color correction, grading, transcoding, outputting, exporting, anything that ends in “-porting” or “-linking” basically), I worked my way through being a post coordinator, post production supervisor and all the way to offline editor. One thing I noticed in many of the non-union live-to-tape shows (like late night comedy or talk shows), is that the editor has a lot of freedom to be creative and can push the envelope a little.
