A stunning video (above) shot from a drone flying through the bowling sparked sensation when it appeared online earlier this week.
The 90-second sequence, captured by Minnesota-based rally studio filmmaker and expert drone pilot Jay Christenson, is said to be stunning, Right up our streetA solo shot is included, which glides through theaters in the Bryant Lake Bowl and Minneapolis.
The film, which has so far been viewed more than five million times on Twitter alone, was shot using a first-person-view (FPV) Cinewhoop quadcopter, a small, zippy drone that is used, as To capture cinematic footage, as the name suggests. But you are sure piloting skills are required to make it.
Christenson worked with Anthony Jaska of Rally Studios to plan the flight of the drone, which was tightly choreographed to fit seamlessly with the movements of the actors – customers and staff in the scene. No computer-generated imagery was added, with the only post-production work involving an audio track to eliminate the noise of the drone.
The result has merit, but how difficult was it to shoot?
Talking to local news sites Kare, Jaska and Christenson this week revealed that it took five practice runs and about 10 wickets in the final shot.
“The first few, the time was up and we would get to a certain part and the bowler wouldn’t, or maybe the drone was in a bit out of position, so it was cool to see, halfway through the process. , Christine tells Kerr about how we recreated everything.
Difficult maneuvers included flying between a client’s legs and the part where the drone flies from the bowling lane to the area behind the pin – the shot that Christenson actually managed to nail each time.
The hardest move, it turns out, was the opening shot where the quadcopter swoops through the front door after flying through the high door.
The footage involves an accident, although she was in the script. This occurs at the very end of the video as the drone inevitably becomes a bowling ball, causing the lane to fall down before sinking into the pins.
Incredibly, the device was still in good working order after a dramatic climax.
“It really went completely into (the pins),” Christenson said. “It’s got a little brake on the protective cover, but it still flies all over and we blew it right after crashing it there.”
Not surprisingly, the film has also influenced Hollywood, suggesting that some very serious proposals may come in the way of Rally Studios before too long.
