Assignment 4 – Carla Sertin

Drones could have an intense impact on my career. I’m interested in immersive journalism, so using drones for photogrammetry or even videogrammetry (some day) would create an interactive way to explore issues like Lebanon’s trash crisis, reporting on demonstrations, and exploring neighborhoods and businesses from a marketing perspective. I don’t expect that they’re going anywhere and they’ll only get more sleek and easy to use with time.

They’re already pretty popular among media organizations, and I believe it will soon be standard to have drones at every news outlet. I also think it removes certain boundaries and gives us access to storytelling techniques that would have been difficult to use in the past.
