Watch: Trash Talk and Flatbush Zombies’ drone-shot video for “97.92”

on May 01, 2014, 1:15pm

Back in 2012, Death Grips released a video shot entirely using a rearview camera attached to a Prius, an interesting re-purposing of the technology that led to a lot of crazy perspectives. Now, with the video for their joint track “97.92”, New York’s Flatbush Zombies and Trash Talk up the technological ante by making use of a remote controlled drone.

The result is a similarly disorientating set of visuals, with the drone’s unfettered movements and lightning-fast speed helping to create many a-bizarre image. That includes giant looping walls of ocean water, jarring fade in’s and fade out’s, the illusion of both bands growing and shrinking suddenly, and upside-down panning shots that’ll literally make your head spin. Watch the video below (via Stereogum); maybe just make sure there’s an air sickness bag handy.

In a statement, the video’s creators, Aplusfilmz and Pier Pictures, explained their wondrous techniques:

“97.92” was created using a 360-degree HD camera rig with a remote-controlled drone octo-copter. The device utilized is the H3Pro7, invented by Michael Kintner of 360Heros.com, which shoots with 7 GoPro cameras all rolling simultaneously. The 7 shots are synced and stitched together to create the full-360 spherical view, which can then be manipulated with the effects and camera movements you see here.

“97.92” is off Converse’s CONS EP VOL. 1, which you can stream here. Trash Talk recently announced their fifth studio album, No Peace, due out May 27th via Trash Talk Collective/Odd Future Records.
