Douglas Spotted Eagle is a giant in the video and audio industries, having received Grammy, Emmy, DuPont, Peabody, and many other awards. His music is heard in a wide range of films from "Last Samurai" to "Star Wars-Ewok" cartoons. His biggest project of 2005 is his musical compositions for PBS monster "The War that Made America," and in 2006 contributed several score pieces to "Lost Landscapes, another PBS full-run, which has been nominated for an Emmy.

Spot may also be found in the various forums as a host on subjects from compositing, HDV, Sony Vegas, to audio engineering. He also has won many awards for his documentaries, including "Toubat: A Journey of the Native American Flute" and "The Way of the Powwow." His Azee' Choo'nii'gii' is the first film produced in the Dine' language.

Douglas has authored several books, the first of which was published world-wide when he was 18 years of age. His technical books include subjects such as Apple's Soundtrack, Sony's Vegas, Adobe's Encore, and DV Basics, and author of the industry best-selling "HDV: What You NEED to Know," and "Instant Vegas."

As a VASST trainer, Douglas has been around the world several times over. Training in areas as diverse as Australia, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Guatemala, Bolivia, Dominican Republic, Sweden, Russia, England, Germany, France, Holland, Israel, Canada, Japan, he has gained a powerful understanding of what people want to know, and how they'd like to best learn it. A dynamic speaker, an inspiration to the industry, and a doer rather than a talker, Douglas simply is wonderful to experience. Catch this guy where you can, because he never stays in one place very long.
 

Douglas is also an aerial camera operator, and has produced training videos on skydiving/aerial camera work. He is one of the first skydivers to fly HD camcorders.





Spot trains in the Sound Forge, ACID, Vegas, HDV, Power Production Techniques, Now Hear This Audio sessions, and Streaming VASST classes.

Drones/UAVs, Cameras, and Beyond: Douglas Spotted Eagle

When longtime Creative COW leader Douglas Spotted Eagle recently approached us with a suggestion to add a Drones/UAV forum to our extensive cinematography and videography communities, it immediately made perfect sense. And who better than Douglas to host? We also took this opportunity to speak to Douglas about the sweep of his career, from Grammy Award-winning musician and producer, through editing, cameras, training, consulting, to now, as an early adopter and advocate for UAVs.

Drone Rules Suck...and Why You Want Them

Drone Rules Suck...and Why You Want Them

Rules! Why do we need so many rules for drones? Pilot, skydiver, and drone operator Douglas Spotted Eagle agrees, “Some of the UAV/drone rules and laws are not only unreasonable but downright ineffective,” but when you look more closely from a pilot’s eye view, they start to make much more sense. Starting with this principle: common sense isn’t all that common!
