Project deliverable Open Access
This document describes the creative industries’ needs for aerial indoor filming and photography using RPAS, commonly also known as drones. To do so, three sessions in different countries, England, Belgium and Spain using the Participatory Action Research (PAR) technique, commonly applied for the analysis of focus groups were held. The PAR tool, that consist on collecting information through a semi-structured group interview process, is led by a moderator that can intervene from a low to a higher level, depending on the dynamics of the discussion. This methodology is very useful to gather information on a specific topic. Informants (experts) were chosen strategically from 13 different sectors to guarantee that all the Creative Industry’s (CI) needs are detected, including experienced drone pilots working in different CI sectors (40% of the informants). Then, information was codified and analysed using the qualitative analysis software QDA Miner by Provalis Research, which is especially designed to analyse interviews and focus group transcriptions. Following ethnographic rules, the names of participants were encoded so they remain anonymous. Results and conclusions are presented in this document, deliverable D2.1, and also in the deliverable D2.2 “Ethical, Security and Safety issues concerning RPAS use in confined spaces”.
