Drone Pilot Who Shot FPV ‘Bowling Alley’ Viral Video Continues to Impress

Filmmaker and drone pilot Jay Christiansen of Minnesota-based Rally Studios became a near-overnight viral sensation when he published a video of a bowling alley that took the idea of a scripted single shot to another level. Since then, he’s published two more amazing videos of other impressive spaces.

When a creative professional does something new and unexpected, others are bound to notice. In just over a month since his debut video took off online, Christiansen’s talents have not gone unnoticed and even caught the attention of director James Gunn of Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” fame.

Earlier in April, Christiansen shot another stunning aerial video featuring Los Angeles stable Mel’s Drive-In:

Following those two successful videos, the team was then leveraged by at least one major corporate client: The Mall of America.

In a video titled “The Quack Attack is Back” (above), Christiansen teamed up with fellow Rally Studios director Anthony Jaska and takes viewers on a cinematic aerial ride through the Mall of America. The goal of the shoot was apparently to not only show off the Mall, but also harken back to nostalgic feelings of their childhoods where they frequented the mall.

“Working with the Mall was a collaborative effort that brought together like-minded folks who wanted to try making the seemingly impossible possible. And that’s just what we did,” Christensen said to . “After a busy morning of strapping on Rollerblades and chasing rollercoasters with a drone, we are extremely proud of this footage and look forward to future shoots with the Mall of America team.”

The extreme level of detail that these shoots feature as well as the expert piloting by Christiansen make them, at least for now, unique. Seeing a creative professional team jump to such success thanks to a new process is something all photographers and filmmakers should be happy to see and shows what is possible when an artist does something new to such a high degree of professionalism.

Christiansen and Rally studios are unlikely done sharing their unique perspectives, so make sure to subscribe to them on YouTube so you don’t miss their next project.

Rejoice! Twitter Finally Rolls Out Full-Size Images in Mobile Feeds

Twitter is finally rolling out bigger images in your feed after almost two months since it began testing the feature. Photographers who want to share their photos on the social network now don’t have to worry about Twitter’s cropping algorithm, and photos will be shown in all their glory by default.

While it might not show for all users quite yet, Twitter has announced that its “bigger and better images” on both iOS and Android are now available to everyone.

Prior to this change, Twitter cropped all non-16:9 images to maintain uniformity on timelines. This change now makes it so that images that are not specifically 16:9 aspect ratio would not have to be tapped in order to reveal them in their entirety. This may result in a more streamlined browsing experience and will no doubt add greater value to images shared on the platform.

The larger image update should also pair well with 4K image support that Twitter announced in late April. Images are currently compressed by default to at most 2048 x 2048. The increase to 4K would nearly double that, allowing photos to display at up to 3840 pixels on the long end. As smartphone displays are becoming higher resolution, this change will make looking at images a superior experience on mobile. This does have a downside, however, as loading larger photos takes more data, which is why the feature needs to be enabled manually in settings.

For some, Twitter may now be a viable alternative to Instagram, a company that relies heavily on its ability to track you across apps in order to better target its advertising and that recently subtly threatened to charge for its services due to Apple’s most recent iOS update.

As noted , the one downside of this rollout will be the “open for a surprise” style posts that have become popular on the platform over the years. While fun, it is a small price to pay for larger, prettier images.
