Drones are a Game Changer in Journalism
As one of 15 experts, project leader of ViSmedia, professor Astrid Gynnild was interviewed by the internationally leading website of the drone industry, skytango.
Marco Mancosu from skytango asked industry experts from around the world about opportunities and challenges in the use of drones in journalism.
“Drones and drone filming are a game changer in journalism. With drones, journalists can provide aerial reporting from events and places that would otherwise be visually inaccessible. Drone filming helps document what is really going on for instance, in war zones, during fires and floods and during demonstrations,” Gynnild says to the website.
