By now, drone assisted cinematography (and photography) is really noting new but the people at the Brain Farm have just taken it to an entirely new and very exciting level. The idea behind this innovative experiment was to move beyond the usual “GoPro-style” set up by equipping a large pro quality drone (an Aerigon UAV model) with a massive Phantom Flex4K slow motion camera, at a total price tag of about a quarter of a million dollars worth of airborne gear.
