This animation shows the chaos a drone caused at a London airport

03 Nov

The sequence of diversions and re-routing caused when a drone was sighted close to one of London’s busiest airports has been turned into an amazing animated map by the UK’s National Air Traffic Service (NATS), to demonstrate the level of disruption even short airport closures can create.

The video map shows what happens to normal air traffic at Gatwick airport when the runway was closed in response to a drone in the vicinity. The closure lasted only nine minutes, but in that time two holding areas away from the airport became congested and some aircraft had to divert to alternative airports over fuel concerns.

The incident happened on a Sunday during the summer when the airport was particularly busy with summer holiday traffic. A drone was spotted close to the runway, but seemed to disappear before returning when the runway reopened, causing it to be closed again for another five minutes. In total, the runway was only closed for 14 minutes, but the level of disruption is easy to see on the map as aircraft circle and shift into safer holding areas with other planes waiting to use the airport.

In all, four holding areas had to be used, and four planes needed to land at different airports because it wasn’t clear how long the closure would last.

“The disruption was significant and took hours to clear; it was around midnight before everything was fully ‘back to normal’ and even then, hundreds of passengers had ended up away from their intended airport and thousands of passengers had been delayed,” reports the NATS blog. “All as a result of one drone pilot flouting the rules. “

NATS encourages all drone pilots to read the Civil Aviation Authorities’ Drone Code and to download the Drone Assist app to ensure they fly safely.

You can find out more about the incident and air traffic control on the NATS website.

144-Year Building: 3D Animation Completes Famous Basilica

11 Oct

famous finished building render

Started in 1882, the Sagrada Família basilica is one of the most famous buildings in the world, despite still remaining unfinished … at least for now. This amazing one-minute animation shows the final steps toward its near-future completion, officially slated for 2026.

Designed by Antoni Gaudí and set in Barcelona, the structure has been in the works for generations, a process continued long after the death of its architect nearly 100 years ago. The animation itself features real aerial helicopter footage enhanced with dynamic digital modelling.

The plan, in fact, is to celebrate its completion on that one-century anniversary of 1926. The project is scheduled to be finished under its new chief architect Jordi Faulí who is following in the plans and footsteps of Gaudí in finalizing this Gothic-inspired masterpiece.

Paper City Animation: “Rise & Fold” of a Fragile Metropolis

01 Jul

[ By WebUrbanist in Art & Drawing & Digital. ]

paper city animation project

Unfolding like a pop-up book in real time, this incredible little built landscape of buildings and bridges, trees and mountains, lampposts and benches rises from nothing then fades back into the oblivion from whence it came.

paper unfolding built environment

A summary from the creator of this cool short animation, Maciek Janicki: “The streets are paved with paper. This delicate animation follows the charming rise and fold of a fragile metropolis. Captured by an unseen helicopter, the narrative unfolds through winding roads, erupting forests and emerging mountains. Paper City grows in one fluid take, with skyscrapers rising from the page – only to crumble, wrinkle and gently crease back into the ground.

Janicki is a motion graphics artist and computer animator from London, England, whose work often focuses on the intersection of built environments, everyday objects of offbeat animation. Some of his other projects, experiments and tests can be viewed via the videos above.

Street Mural Turns Into an Animation as People Drive By

29 Jun

[ By Delana in Art & Street Art & Graffiti. ]

in between flipbook mural

Remember making hand-held flipbooks when you were a kid? Those cute little books that made primitive cartoons when you flipped through the pages quickly could amuse and entertain for hours. Recently, Argentinian street artist Hyuro brought that joyful amusement to Copenhagen on a long wall that many cars pass by every day.

In/between consists of 87 aluminum panels, each showing a piece of an animation. When seen all together from a moving car, the animation shows the short story of a deer running through a forest and then emerging. The animated mural is a classy, sophisticated piece of graffiti that the whole city gets to enjoy.

Hyuro and her helper painted the entire mural/animation by hand over the course of two weeks. Hyuro’s project was chosen in a competition held by artistic community ArtRebels, which drew submissions from artists all over the world.

Sandra draws an abstract thing: 5 of 52 (invisible pen/ animation)

16 Oct

The music is Murray Gold’s “I am the Doctor”, played by Mark Fowler aka UKPiano and you can watch him play this very piece right here: This is the fifth video in my attempt to make 52 drawing videos in one year. I know, i’ve fallen a few weeks behind. (Pretty standard for me unfortunately). But i wanted to do something a little bit different and this one took a little bit more time. The video is made of about 6000 frames. And by that i mean I clicked the mouse with my right big toe 6000 times to take the photos. 6000 times. My leg hurts, my hand hurts, my back hurts and my shoulder hurts, but the outcome is my favorite thing i’ve ever done 🙂 And i know that there’s a 30-second out of focus scene. I only noticed when it was too late to start over again so we’re stuck with that. I took the photos with my Nikon D80 and Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 lens, using Nikon Camera Control pro with my computer. I use a Signo uni-ball dx 0.38mm ink pen.

I was able to get my hands on the new Magic Lantern build a day early so we went out and grabbed some test shots at one of our favorite locations (from The McCormick Brothers) above Foster Lake in Oregon. HDR (High Dynamic Range) is performed in camera by capturing two different ISO values. Most of these shots were at ISO 100-800 or 200-1600. Those two streams are then split and re-fused back together in post production to produce the HDR video. Magic Lantern is free for download and everything you need to produce HDR video is included and also free. Alex is truly a pioneer and he is offering the 5D Mark II build to those who donate. It will eventually be released (as this one is BETA) but you can get it early by donating.
