How did the factory farm drone project come to be?
At a sneak-preview screening of Speciesism: The Movie in early 2012, Georgetown Law student Jon Mirsky suggested that the director, Mark Devries, use drones in a future project. Devries began filming with drones later that year. However, the drone footage in the present video – which provides a small sample of what has been filmed overall – was taken in just a few days.
