Peter Asaro Discusses about Drone Filmmaking on Indiewire

In “How Safe is Drone Filmmaking,” Peter Asaro is featured as a professor of Media Studies at the New School in New York. In discussing the ethics and aesthetics involved in drone filmmaking, Asaro contributes his stance on how and what needs to be considered in using drones for filmmaking. Beyond the safety issues around using the drones, Asaro also brings up a crucial point on the relationship between aesthetics and technology:
