Our quick inspiration today is this touching video filmed with a similar Phantom drone quadcopter to the ones we used many times in our own videos. In many ways, we wouldn't exist as Sutro Studios, without PDI and for that we're forever thankful.

PDI was one of the pioneers of the computer graphics industry, and a friendly and inspiring competitor to Pixar and others. With some of the best talent in the world, and many unforgettable memories, it was with sadness that we learned about the closure of PDI.

We can only imagine what new exciting worlds all these amazing and incredible people are going to create or imagine next, and for that, even though we cry for this loss, we also cherish the infinite talent and opportunities these same people will create very very soon.

Cheers to you PDI. Thanks for everything. 


Thanks Edric for the logo and the help shooting this, Brian and Rex for the help organizing it... and thanks to all of you for 9 amazing years. I made the video downloadable so you can all have it, the resolution is pretty big so you will be able to capture cool images from it. Enjoy.
