Three military drone pilots tell the intimate story of the lives they observe on a day-to-day basis.

Find Fix Finish delves into the accounts of three military drone pilots as they tell the intimate story of the lives they observe on a day-to-day basis. The voyeuristic ocular perspective from a military drone can reduce people to pixels on a screen and a certain de-contextualisation is almost necessary to deal with the fact that people can be killed at a push of a button. ‘Have you ever stepped on an anthill and not given it a second thought?’.
