You can already record some decent footage with a drone if you're so inclined, but "decent" isn't good enough for director James Cameron. He's lending support to C-Prize, a New Zealand competition meant to improve drone technology for the movie and TV producers. The challenge will reward those who develop tech that makes drones quieter, more stable and better at tracking moving subjects -- all important when you're shooting your magnum opus with a robotic camera. You'll have to pitch your idea by July 5th, but the mad scramble could be worth it if it earns the gratitude of Cameron and other filmmakers hoping to spice up their aerial shots.
