Maybe you’ve seen it. Maybe you haven’t, but this drone pilot, basically uh drove flew his uh. His really fast little fpv drone through a bowling alley in the american heartland somewhere minneapolis. I think it was and he was going. You know up and down through the bowling alley following the bowling balls in between people’s legs. Uh is truly an incredible video, which is why it’s gone viral right now, in fact, it’s so good that even hollywood, elitists uh you know directors such as james gunn. Guardians of the galaxy now wants the pilot to work for him in the newest guardians of the galaxy film, so that’s really really cool, so we’re going to be showing you guys today, this video and reading a quick little article about the situation. Now this is the actual video it’s right up our alley by this guy jay brad films. Am i saying that not probably not but that’s it there. We will show you the video in a second now. This is the article here we go. Watch the stunning single shot drone video that is bowling over hollywood in 87 seconds. Did you see what they did there bowling over hollywood? Nice guys? That was a good one. A breakneck speed tour of a minneapolis bowling alley has seen millions of people watching and even hollywood impressed by the slick skills of the pilot. The 87 second video produced by sky candy studios starts above bryant lake bowl, which is the bowling alley.
I’M guessing uh before speeding through the doorway, completing several turns around the lanes and flying up behind the pin setting machines before passing through the maintenance room and even between a bowler’s legs. Wow several hollywood, a list technicals praised the video as draw dropping and the youtube post quickly accumulated more than a million views. So how many views does the guy have at the moment he has 1.7 million views, unbelievable uh uh, the bartender uh called farah, might pronounce that right. Uh basically can vouch for this video because he works there and he saw it happen. It was 100 real. The director anthony jaska said it wasn’t a commercial shoot, but rather just a way to highlight the amazing capabilities of first person, view fpv, drone photography. The pilot was jay christensen, who nailed 15 out of 15, takes not crashing the drone a single time, even though tight spaces like between the legs of one person who was polishing a ball uh, is actually a nod to the character in the big lebowski called john. We probably did at 10, takes with the camera running christensen, told the the radio people or whoever it was. The first few times was way off and we would get to a certain part and the bowler would be there or maybe the drone was a little out of position. Uh, the final shot was completed in a single, take, remained unedited and used no cgi, which is absolutely incredible, because the actual video looks like it was done with cgi.
If you have not seen it it’s pretty pretty incredible. Actually, the only alterations of any kind were dubbing in the bowling actors, voices again a nod to the most bold, most famous bowling film. I should say of all time when one bowler can be heard saying: market 8, dude that’s, the big lebowski i’m, pretty sure they’re talking about with jeff bridges now sky candy studios could now have some big money interest in the skills of its pilots and producers. As guardian of the galaxy director, james gunn, tweeted, tuesday, tuesday, oh my god, this drone shot is stupendous and later i want them to come with us to london later this year, when we shoot guide into the galaxy vol 3., so yeah we’ll be sure to let You know where this guy candy crew shows up next. Well, i’ll, absolutely definitely let you know if they get any more incredible videos like this. Now this is the actual video we’re going to be showing you. It looks honestly pretty cgi but it’s, not it’s, completely real um yeah drone photography has been around for a little while now but uh. This is a different kind of drone called fpv, really fast, small little drone that can get really cool shots and do flips and stuff like that it’s. Basically, a sports car of the drone world and uh yeah dji. I made a video about it, but dji recently unveiled one a drone, just kind of like this actually a couple weeks ago now so yeah check out that video, if you haven’t seen it already, but guys this is the actual video, so let’s uh watch it right.
Now going through the door just that shot alone is incredible: wow it’s, amazing how they get that shot following the ball. Wow. Look at that! Oh my god, in between and through to the machine area. That’S incredible now remember all the sounds you’re listening to was dubbed in later. Otherwise the sound of the drone would have been too loud, that’s incredible! Oh man, you imagine if it would have hit his balls that wouldn’t have been a good day. It’S that easy wow. Look at that Music, unbelievable. It looks not real right, but it is how incredible that’s that’s so incredible yeah it deserves all the prize. It’S it’s gotten a really incredible film.
