Droning on & on

Yesterday, USF-TV club members had a great day with Brendan Walsh, an Emmy award winner producer.  He is a former USF Mass Communication major who owns his own video production company called Great Lakes Media.  Brendan has a commercial drone license and he was gracious enough to speak to USF-TV club members about the legal aspects of flying drones for recreational purposes. 

After his presentation, we drove out to Will County’s wide open spaces for some hands-on flight training using the club’s GoPro Karma video drone.  Each student was allowed to fly the drone, then along came Derrek Matichak, another former USF Mass Communication alum who has a commercial drone license and his own video production company.  We all had a great time flying the drone and the afternoon was educational and fun. 

The USF-TV students are editing the footage right now so they can upload it USFTVClub Facebook.  It’s wonderful to have alums come back to USF and share their expertise with our Communication & Media Arts students.  I’ll stop now, so I don’t drone on & on.
