Drone UFO Video

The latest video posted here on TDG is an absolute must-watch for those who have been following the UFO ‘Drones’ fiasco over the last few months. It’s a ‘music video’ for the track “Strange Craft”, by DRONE, but it’s instructive on many counts. Most importantly, for those who have said the ‘Drones’ couldn’t be CG creations, it shows just how easily things like this can now be created – not just as 2D images, but as life-like 3D constructions. The video, created by Kris Avery (aka ‘Saladfingers’), who works for a UK 3D imaging company, is mind-blowingly good (and the music’s pretty damn fine too).

The video clip uses both the drone images, as well as the so-called CARET blueprint documents, and manipulates them brilliantly – moving from 2D to 3D seamlessly (so much so, I’m going to have to reluctantly put Kris Avery on the list of suspects for the original drone images…). Not to mention, it integrates sampled audio of Linda Moulton Howe and alleged witnesses describing the craft. I could talk about it for a while longer, but it’s just a whole lot better if you simply watch the clip. You can download a high-res version as well. Stunning work. (h/t Forgetomori)

Update: The creator of the video, Kris Avery, has been kind enough to post a comment here on TDG about the video (and – quite legitimately – takes issue with my backhanded compliment about him being at the top of the candidates to be the original hoaxer).

      Meant to mention in there that there is a lot of sampling of LMH and witnesses, have done so now. Thanks for the reminder.

      Kind regards,
      You monkeys only think you’re running things

      1. Oh, that’s Linda talking?
        Oh, that’s Linda talking? I didn’t realise. Heh. Excellent music video, and I think you’re right to put Avery at the top of the suspects list for the drone hoax. I love how they used the circular blueprints like spinning records. 😉

        By the way, did the War Of the Worlds orchestral performance play in Brisbane? I missed it here in Melb last week, but I hear it’s pretty good.

        1. Wow!
          That was bloody brilliant! 🙂

          And I like the music too…

          So, do we wrap this one up? Did these guys plan this whole thing beforehand? Somebody should interview this Kris Avery fellow ASAP

          PS: Let’s see what Strieber and Linda Moulton says about this one…

          It’s not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me…
          It’s all the rabbit SH*T you stumble over on your way down!!!

  1. CGI Hoax-a-plenty
    Well if this doesnt clear the air here I dont know what does. I have know this was a hoax all along, it has been extremely obvious (I used to to 3D modeling and am familiar with the software and associated technologies).

    I just think its lame when people like this perpetuate such a hoax!!

  2. Kris here… and I am NOT THE HOAXER!
    Hi folks,

    listen, you can take me straight OFF the hoaxers list…

    If the drone case was hoaxed.. if (because it has yet to be proven) it was not me. Feelings about the possibility of what you imagine this case to be do not make it so. It is way more complicated than that. My video (to some) can only ever show that it is possible that the drones could be the result of CG, not that they are. There is much to be done before that is proven positive or negative.

    I will also reply to the comment about how easy it was to create this video. It wasn’t! It took a fair amount of time, and was not a walk in the park.

    I’m very glad that the video has been enjoyed, and I am extremely flattered by some of the wonderful feedback! I never expected such a resounding response. But it was not created to debunk, and the wide majority of people who have seen it don’t think so either. It is a dedication to some of the extremely talented and intelligent people who have put many many hours of study into this case. It is also a result of the artistic inspiration I have drawn from the unique imagery in the drones and the CARET documents. Ultimately, it was created to breathe life into objects we have only ever seen as flat 2D images, while bringing some entertainment and enjoyment along the way!

    Whether real or not, there are some amazing visual aspects in the original presented evidence. I think the primer part of the video presents this inspiration to the fullest.

    So please, don’t dismiss the drone case outright because my work looks pretty close. It took a lot of work to get them as close as they are. A lot of studying of the images.

    The answer to this case is personal to everyone, but no one has ‘proved’ anything. Merely provided possibilities, and there are so many of these to choose from. To dismiss this case on a feeling is to dismiss the search for the truth.

    I have at times thrown my hands up in the air and said that this has got to be CG! But I haven’t proved that. Has anyone? But it hasn’t been proved to be real either. It is the unanswered questions that drive us mad, which is why it is so easy to throw the towel in and resign ourselves to our feelings. I am still wide open to this case being real, so please don’t think I say it is a hoax, full stop, the end.
    It is over when it is proven one way or the other, not before.
    To say such is to belittle the hard work done by some very dedicated researchers. This I have learned along the way!

    Final note. The special thanks to Linda Moulton Howe is for the kind lending of her voice to the amazing piece of music by ‘Drone’. She is not related to the video in the sense of her involvement in any way. I have never spoken to her myself. But I take this opportunity to thank her again for sounding so cool on the track! It wouldn’t be so good without her on there, and it gives the music a backbone that makes sense of the images.

    Anyway, I hope this message clears a few things up. I refuse to be the debunkers champion, or any such nonsense. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and I honestly hope everyone makes up their own mind, as opposed to being swayed by the flat conclusions of others.

    That’s it really. Maybe you could post this letter a little more prominently? As I don’t really like being tagged with the hoaxer brush. I want to make it VERY CLEAR, that the original evidence has nothing to do with me.

    Thanks and the kindest of regards,

    Kris : )

    1. Thanks for the reply

      Hi Kris,

      Thanks for posting, and let me offer my personal congratulations on a stunning job with the film clip – one of the top things I’ve seen all year. My throwaway comment about top of the hoaxers list was meant more as a backhanded compliment, because you’ve absolutely nailed the designs.

      I’ll post the link to your comment here in the original story, but I’d be happy to do more of a feature from you if you like? Either a short interview, or perhaps a feature article explaining how you did it all, and your personal thoughts? I’d love to know the tools involved, work/render times etc. Are these posted somewhere already?

      For the record, my (personal and subjective) conclusion of ‘hoax’ is not based on your ability to reproduce it (although it certainly shows how ‘easy’ – and by that, I mean you don’t need to be Steven Spielberg – it would be to create the images). My conclusion is based simply on the way the images came to public light – no contact to real investigating bodies or public officials, just to certain individuals/organisations who would eat this stuff up. That’s a big pointer to me.

      Kind regards,
      You monkeys only think you’re running things

      1. Interview!
        Thanks so much for going “on the record” Kris. Personally I think you did a stunning work with the video; I even think the best parts are not the drone themselves, but the wonderful things you did giving 3d animation to the 2D Caret desings provided by “Isaac”.

        But you’ll understand that things will get more complicated now on account of this. Some people who refused to believe this could be done with CGI will have to rethink their stance, and we can expect some of the usual skeptics to gloat.

        I admit it, the possibility that you were in fact “Isaac” all along ocurred to me. Although I only saw a low res version of the clip, some of the images looked remarkably simmilar. Certainly a LOT of dedication was put in the production of this video.

        As I have written on some other threads (and UFO Mystic’s Greg Bishop is of the same thinking) in the XXIst century photographic or video proof is no longer valid evidence, and this is not only regarding UFOs! I expect to see a CGI video of Bigfoot anytime soon 🙂

        I think Greg is right in that you should allow an interview to clear some of the more technical aspects of the video, how you managed to reproduce so faithfully the Drone designs and all, what software you used, etc.

  3. Thank the gods someone
    Thank the gods someone FINALLY did a CG demonstration for this. I too have experience in 3D and compositing and such methods came to mind when I first saw the drone images.

    Beautifully done video by the way! Im glad a talented CG artist got a video out before the hoaxers did!
