It seems like it’s only a matter of time before drone journalism becomes the norm in many newsrooms, as the legality of drone footage is debated in many countries.

The ability to cover news events from the sky gives a different angle for news video coverage. Combine that with the increasing affordability of air-drones and we start to see some experimentation from media outlets.

The Drone Journalism website has a lot great information on the craft, and video examples.

Featured on the site is this video, commissioned by Mexico’s largest print publisher Grupo Reforma and shot by pilot Gerardo Bazan of a teachers protest in Mexico City’s Localo Square.
