During two months, the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 was in the hands of several profiles (journalists, videographers and engaged citizens) to see what they could learn from it… And the answer is not that simple. Plus a journalistic know-how, the ‘Dronalist’ must be good pilot! Raphaël Labbé, French director of innovation at French magazine l’Express resumes “10% journalist, 30% video, 60% of piloting skills: with the drone journalism, the journalist uses a new look, the videographer values it… but nothing is possible without the piloting skill.”
Among the finest achievements, discover a wonderful capture above the Tuileries Gardens and the Louvre in Paris by French blogger @PPC, who took the opportunity to see life from a totally different angle!
His aim was to show that the encounter of journalism and new technologies is both a necessary change and a wonderfull opportunity for journalists who give themselves the means, particularly in the context of French heritage.
A bet won, no?
