Our favourite web video of the week is Inside the Explosion by South African videographer Jos Stiglingh. If you’re browsing YouTube for some highlights from the 4th July fireworks then I’m sure you will be able to find plenty of amateur smartphone footage. For one man, though, the view from below wasn’t enough, and he decided to use his GoPro-equipped drone to film the action from the sky. Equipped with a GoPro Hero 3 Silver camera mounted on a DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter drone, Jos Stiglingh filmed 3D view of a fireworks show in West Palm Beach, Florida.
The technique transforms the show from simple rays of light splashed across the dark sky into fantastic three-dimensional experiences. The video, which he uploaded in May, is now going viral because of July 4 festivities with over 4.5 millions views. Check it out
