When we were briefed to create a fake luxury watch campaign for a Cartoon Network show with @spencermatthews, including a spoof ‘Behind The Scenes’ video of the shoot, we were instantly hooked. Hugo even created a bespoke 'serious watch ad’ soundtrack... 🎥😂🤷🏼♂️
Make sure to check out the Making Of film in our bio (watch for some Brother Film Co. cameos throughout it!) 👀
Big thanks to @prettygreenthings for the opportunity! 🤙🏼
Drones in Transportation⠀
Drones have extended their roots into every industry, hence making them better by the day. The transportation industry has also got a boost from drones as major companies like Uber and Airbus will bring forth drone taxis.⠀
Drones are known to carry a small payload, but some of these models have been built to carry passengers which is a significant advancement in drone technology. With rising global warming concerns and decreasing fossil fuels we require a better and greener alternative for means of transport. Moreover, due to the rapid urbanization, road transport has become stagnant and time consuming. Air travel via commercial airliners is an immediate fix but is again costly. This where drones show their potential in stepping up the transportation industry.⠀
Larger drones can carry astounding amounts of payloads for a longer duration of time. The advancement of AI technology has made UAVs safer than ever. Transportation of goods and people via drones is not only safer but also greatly cost effective and has no negative impact on the ecosystem. Many e-commerce giants have begun testing, trial and initial implementation of drones for delivering their products. Countries like China, Dubai and the U.S are working their way to unveil passenger drones on a commercial basis. Transportation through UAVs adds on to loads of advantages. Several thousand people around the world die everyday due to delay in aid in emergency scenarios which is credited to staggering traffic. This can be prevented by passenger drones.⠀
With the exponential growth of drones, these are the some the top passenger drones and the companies that created them: Ehang 184, Volocopter 2x and Uber Elevate.⠀

Police Drones For Fighting Crime
To watch over high-crime areas in major cities is expensive and time-consuming. Therefore, it is simple to understand why the use of unmanned drones can help law enforcement fight crime.
UAVs have been used for observation to help the missions that are associated with kidnappings, drug interdictions, search and rescue operations and runaway investigations. The FBI revealed a letter to Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) in 2013, who had enquired about use of drones by FBI. Since late 2006, the FBI has conducted surveillance using UAVs in eight criminal cases including the incident of Dykes and two national security cases.
According to technology futurist Gray Scott, the revolution of the drone is just getting started. Scott says, “We are right on the tip of the iceberg”. Within the next five years, I believe we’re going to see a saturation of drones in the United States; they’re going to be extremely common everywhere.
Assume a child goes missing at a crowded area. Police scrutiny drones built with cameras, license-plate readers, and facial-recognition software can soon increase the probability of locating them within one day. It is 50 times faster than people doing a search on bikes, motorcycles or on foot.

Box Office: $545.4 million
This move was a tight one. Making it more difficult were occasional gusts of wind blowing through the building. We hung pieces of hazard tape in a few key spots to get a visual of how the wind was moving through the building. @heindewaal was stationed on the upwind side waiting to signal a lull in the wind. Once the drone was in a hover, I waited for his signal and went for it.
PA NEEDED! Nashville friends, I’ll be heading down this weekend to direct 2 music videos (Fri & Sat) for my boys in @lonelyouthnashville. I’ll need some extra hands on set! HMU if you wanna work on a dope set with the coolest cats east of the Mississippi 🤘🏻 📷: @ansley.cohen
