We loved this creatively put together amazing long shot, made with a GoPro

Written by Simon Wyndham

Who doesn't like a good long shot? We think this one is pretty impressive, as well as showing some seriously impressive flying skills to boot!

 I'm a sucker for a good long shot, and this one from GoPro got my attention. It is, at heart, a simple drone shot. Well, I say simple, but whoever is flying the drone has some serious skills. No doubt it has been done using an FPV system, but the fluidity on display here is pretty mind blowing.

The flying itself is impressive, with the craft fitting through some impossibly small gaps, but the whole concept is nicely thought out using sound design to tell the story of old abandoned building... with a twist. All shot on a simple GoPro and a tiny drone.
