Napalm Records’ (www.napalmrecords.com) recording artists Kissin’ Dynamite, based in Germany, have been using drones to shoot their own music videos. Guitarist Jim Müller’s builds his own FPV drones, which are both agile and powerful. Drone imagery has appeared in the band’s music videos for Not The End Of The Road and
What Goes Up.
In the Not The End Of The Road video, the band performs on an airport tarmac. A race car closely circle them while they play and then speeds down the open runway. Stunt planes simultaneously dart in and out with smoke trailing.
What Goes Up was shot in a contenporary mansion with dramatic views. The band parties and performs throughout the day and night, while revelers join in the fun, culminating with a pool-side party.
According to Müller, he used two different drones for the music video shoots. One drone was a fast, five-inch freestyle drone that was used to follow the drift car in the Not The End Of The Road video, and to show guitarist Ande playing a solo on a ocean-side cliff formation in
What Goes Up. The other model - a smaller three-inch Cinewhoop - was used to safely fly close to people and through buildings.
Müller has also shot done footage for the bands Cypecore and Mystic Circle.
