Skaters Get Ready

Attention Skaters, it’s time to step up your game. Your iPhone videos are not going to cut it anymore and you’ve got Agenda kicking off on Jan. 4, Surf Expo set to open on Jan. 10 and S.L.A.T.E. at MAGIC in February.

You can’t get ridiculously amazing overhead shots like the one above (can you spot the skater?) with a smart phone. You’re going to need an unmanned drone. That’s what Czech company Samadi Production did. The result is called “Firefly” and it’s pretty stunning.

Hat tip to PopSci, which has a second, equally fun “Making Of” video.
