The Next Frontiers of Aerial Storytelling
Using drones in visual storytelling is already ubiquitous.
Drone imagery have enriched fiction as well as factual narratives and provides overviews and data of great news value. Due to altitude limitations (about 120 meter) and short battery life, drones tend to be mostly used in local or hyper-local reporting, while satellites are on the rise for news coverage of events in remote places. Satellites provide new options for the verification of visual data. In this talk, Turo Uskali will discuss pitfalls and obstacles in the emerging era of satellite journalism.
