David and Sarah Oneal are in the Drone Business.

Here's a business (and a product) that did not even exist a few years ago, but now is growing fast!

Many of our own VJs are deeply into drone-related work. Where once you need a helicopter, pilot and a lot of money to get great aerial shots, now you can do whatever you could do with a chopper (and a LOT more) on your own. 

David and Sarah are grads of our training, but they've taken it to heart and really gone video.  They have a website,, which explains their business and is a point of sale for their many products 

But now, with the addition of video, it is much more! It's really the beginning of a channel.

Sarah and David founded International Drone Day. The first annual event took place on March 14 2015, and saw the drone community come together for a common cause – to educate the world that drones are good. We have done 189 events around the world and the next one planned is for May 6, 2017

Over 50,000 people worldwide took parts in events hosted by 150 Team Captains. Drones attracted unprecedented levels of positive mainstream media coverage, and real communities grew from the day. 

Since then it has been a wild ride. Sarah and David created a documentary, called The Drone Invasion, which explores commonly held myths about drones. Drone enthusiasts and key industry figures appear in the film, it had its premier in September 2016.

International Drone Marketing, helps companies in the drone space to grow their client base, through video production, social media marketing, and trade show and event services.

Available to speak on all matters drone, Sarah and David live by the motto #DronesAreGood

A huge market for content had just opened up.

Q: What do TV news and Netflix have in common? A: They both appear on the same screen. They both tell stories.

This morning, I went out early to buy my copy of the weekend FT — a great newspaper, by the way. I was a bit surprised to see that my regular newsstand, on 6th Avenue and 55th Street, had exactly 3 newspapers for sale — one copy of Baron’s and two copies of The New York Post. That was it. No FT, no NY Times, no Washington Post, no… nothing.
