A good starting point for the FAA in terms of creating drone regulations is addressed in this article. If they allow Hollywood to make movies with them, hopefully commercial shoots will be considered as well!
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Drones may be flying through the skies with FAA approval for film and television purposes.
The Federal Aviation Administration announced Monday that seven video and photo production companies asked for exemptions allowing them to use unmanned aircraft systems, more commonly known as drones with approval from the agency.
The requests were facilitated by the Motion Picture Association of America, on behalf of the aerial cinematography professionals.
To receive the exemptions, the firms must prove that the drones will be used safely, and that the exemptions would be in the public interest.
