We reached the original goal almost immediately with 31 people, the first stretch goal #1 we passed through yesterday with a group of 59 people, and there is no telling how far we can go when a few more faces jump aboard.

With less than 3 days remaining we are a 61 strong group spread all over the world, the drone is funded, a WiFi enabled camera and memory are funded, this will definitely happen,  jump aboard. 

Stretch Goal #2 £1300

At this level, in addition to the Drone helicopter, GoPro camera mount, WiFi enabled GoPro Hero 3 camera with a SanDisc 35 GB memory card, I'll also be able to get GoPro LCD Touch Bac Pac £79.99 As the GoPro has no view finder, framing shots for the time-lapse beach drawings can only be a rough approximation by looking at the reflected image in the actual lens, often lying upside down, hanging half way off a cliff! Adding an extra SanDisc 32 GB memory card £49.99, GroPro wall charger £35.99 and GoPro Battery Bac Pac £49.99, will allow the longer shooting times necessary for time-lapse filming.

VERY different angles coming SOOOOOON

If we reach this #2 level ALL backers will receive both the 2 digital images - one from the drone, and one from the cliff top AND a downloadable HD short film Time-lapse of the whole 'Pledge name drawing" process. 

Sit down with a coffee and turn up the volume, have a wander along the coast.... http://vimeo.com/channels/tonyplant/videos

Risks and challenges

Ordinarily I work alone. Arriving at a location, from above I stop and visualise where the different components of the drawing will be dropped in, all the weights, spins, areas of light and shade, lines, composition and space between. Next I set up cameras, climb down to the beach and, remembering/recognising where the various features are, I set to work.
These drawings are absolutely tide dependent and take a number of hours to complete, the idea of this project is to quickly, quietly and easily gain the height necessary to photograph the drawings (via the drone) in areas/environments where there is little or no access to natural height.
All the best to you and yours, t x
