Drones, HUDs, San Francisco

Our Drone Future is a look at the imminent condition of unmanned aerial vehicles. My video explores the technology, capability, and purpose of drones, as their presence becomes an increasingly pervasive reality in the skies of tomorrow.

As portrayed, cities use semi-autonomous drones, specializing in predictive analysis, for urban security. Human officers monitor the drone feeds remotely, and data reports are displayed with a detailed HUD and communicated via a simulated human voice (designed to mitigate discomfort with sentient drone technology). This portion shows a landmark security drone surveying San Francisco landmarks and encountering fierce civilian resistance.

Created with DJI Phantom Drones, After Effects, Premier, Logic, GoPro, and a liberal interpretation of FAA regulations.
