Gatwick airport disruption: police still trying to catch drones after flights cancelled – live (The Guardian)

Scenes from Tullow, Co Carlow on Tuesday morning

Further to Carlow Weather guy Alan O’Reilly (him off the telly!) breaking his drone…

And setting up a successful GoFundMe campaign to replace it…

Alan, who provides weather forecasts to the nation for nada, is now back in the sky.

From top: Carlow Weather guy Alan O’Reilly; his broken drone

We’re calling it the Alan Parsons O’Reilly Project.

Much-followed Carlow Weather guy Alan O’Reilly (him off the telly!) has broken his drone.

And he’s set up a GoFundMe page to help him replace it.

Alan, who provides his forecasting to the nation for nothing, requires 1450 lids to fly again.

He writes:

“Sadly my old drone hit the rocks and I’m to to replace it so I can continue to share photos from the air…”

Anyone?

A short by Paul Trillo shot entirely (in one unbroken 10 minute take) by drone. The result is a uniquely menacing vision of one man’s public breakdown in full sight of his neighbours. To wit:

The entire shot was pre-visualized in CInema4D using 3D actors and computer generated voices. The camera operator and drone pilot then had to memorize everything beat for beat according to the script.

Here’s how it was made.
