Cinewhoop Unlimited Potential
The first bowling cinewhoop drone video by Sky Candy Studios has made the rounds on social media around the world (see video). The Minneapolis team then offered a tour of the Ford Center, the headquarters of the Dallas Cowboys professional football team (see video). Sky Candy’s latest piece has over 7.5 million views in just Twitter! This time they’re targeting baseball, filming a long sequence around and in the Chicago Cubs MLB’s Wrigley Field.
The cinewhoop drone pilot is Michael Welsh, who is also the founder of Sky Candy Studios. Drone: Proven Rotor Riot Cinewhoop equipped with a GoPro Hero 10 camera. The final video consists of 5 consecutive video segments, each filmed 5 times, to achieve perfect stitching without blunders, for example, so that people appearing in the frame finally forget that there is a drone next to them, and they did not look at it. Michael Welsh, in an interview with the American radio station WBEZ Chicago, admitted that he crashed his drone in one of the scenes when he had to go through the window of a fire truck.
Michael also noted that the moment where the drone follows the player had to be filmed without the use of cinewhoop. Major League Baseball has refused to shoot from a drone during the game. Michael Welsh replaced this footage by running after the player with a GoPro in hand. Looking closely, you can see the failure of image stabilization in this video sequence!
To make flying more fun, Sky Candy Studios also worked on the sound. Specifically, Michael noted that: “Using the real sounds of these places, in the case of this video, such as the train, voice announcements and cheering fans, allows you to more fully immerse the viewer in the atmosphere of these places, which would be far from the same if If only music was involved in the video.
