n-copter video OTD

2012-12-13 17:49:34.793865+00 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

Firefly - drone shot video of night skateboarding in San Francisco. Via Ünnecessary Ümlaut, which also links to the "making-of" video.

What shocks me most about this is how quickly shots that were formerly expensive crane, or even crane + computer compositing, operations have become normal. It was like "oh, we go from looking at the skateboarder to looking down from the top of a building. Yeah, that's kinda cool."

Bonus: Shooting human shaped targets with a paintball gun mounted on a hexa-copter
