dogfight

VICE is calling first’ies guys… screw any of you who thinks they aren’t the first to do a dogfight:

I know a lot of you hate VICE stuff… I like the topics at least because they are out of the ordinary.  The quality of reporting definitely leaves something to be desired though.

Not sure that breathing in Bronx warehouse dust would be high on my list of things to breathe in.  You’d think they could have found a cleaner inclosed area like a school gym or something…. or did Bloomberg ban all fun in gyms yet?

People are getting pretty pissed off in the comments about them calling this a “drone” because drones are autonomous.  The ultimate best comment is this though by “Kibbler”:  “Now they just need a drone that smokes weed, dresses like a hipster and mines bitcoins. Then they will have the VICE trifecta.”

In other drone news, apparently the “drone community” was up in arms that Larue Tactical shot at a drone. This was a mailing list newsletter they sent out:

 €70,000 to fund the live action portion of the film.  There was no money left for visual effects so the director did them all for free over a 6 month period:

A British fighter pilot pursues the german ace that shot down his friend across sky and country… with murder in mind. But he discovers it’s not so easy to kill a man when you have to look them in the eye.

You can read more about the movie over at the website – HERE

€70,000 converts to $110,000 USD today which seems like a lot of money to me for a 9 minute movie.   They did a nice job on it though.

Thoughts?
