Since you didn't specify what kind of help, have you tried YouTube? Loads of videos on a variety of subjects as they relate to drones and photos/videos.

Sorry I wasn’t more specific. I’ve taken some videos but haven’t really gotten the technique down. For example: moving camera up and down when filming and how fast, is it best to fly sideways or straight when filming, things like that.

Spend a little time in here Photos and Video and just find some you like and watch what they do and try to mimic the stuff you like . Is what I do and if you can't figure it out you just ask them . is what this place is for . It takes a little time to get smooth and really helps if you have good subject matter .:)

"Cinematically" speaking, pans, tilts, zooms in and out, dollies are used to create interest and communicate to your audience. Drones can do just about everything in the book except zooms, which are now possible with the latest Mavick. I like dirkclods suggestion to view the work of other pilots.

There's a handbook I purchased awhile back that came with a complete on-line course. Here's the link. $10. Cheap!
