SMC Drone & Action Filmmaking (DAF) students specialize in the"Capture" and "Create" components of the mountain camp, but they still join in on daily mountain bike rides. Students take advanced classes in Action Cinematography and Sound & Picture Editing. A portion of each day is devoted to our Drone Training Program. Students learn drone safety and flying techniques for aerial cinematography, starting with consumer battle drones and working up through the DJI line of the latest Spark, Mavic, Phantom, and Inspire models.
Working in small teams, DAF students collaborate with athletes in our Advanced Mountain Biking program and capture action and aerial imagery of their rides and stunts. For their final project, each DAF student builds a reel of the best of their action film and aerial cinematography shots, which is screened at the final showcase for friends and family. Check out this sample film by 2017 DAF camper, Larry Yu.
