Electric Dreams


This TV sci-fi anthology show is based upon stories by Philip K. Dick.

The season’s final episode, Autofac, starts with a factory drone hauling delivery boxes, until its flight is shot down by scavengers. 

Later, a futuristic quad-copter transport lands at the survivors’ village. 

An android pilots this sci-fi copter, and flies passengers back to the factory. 

This big transport enters a cavern-like portal.   

Dozens of smaller drones work in the Autofac, like bees in a hive, and other quad-copters fly outside to deliver boxes.

Shanghai Job

THE SHANGHAI JOB (aka: S.M.A.R.T. Chase, 2017)

This action movie is about a team of private security agents working in China. 

The security company’s techie uses a quad-copter drone to spy on a girl in the yard. 

Later, the same type of drone flies in an air-support role for the heroes’ convoy of three cars.

Swooping down to street level for a low-flying stunt, the drone knocks an enemy pursuit rider off his motorbike.

Another drone copter is used to follow and guide the running hero (Orlando Bloom) during his escape from a gang of villains. 

The drone also helps the heroes track down the robbers.
