Fire In The Sky 2015 Fireworks Display - Brought to you by Fire In The Sky, a 501 (c)(3) organization of volunteers in Fayette County, Ohio, and its many sponsors and donors.
The video was shot by Jay Yahn with a DJI Phantom 3 Professional quadcopter (a.k.a. drone). The video is synced to the intro provided by WVNU Lite 97.5 FM and the soundtrack provided by Fire In The Sky. Due to several contributing factors such as atmospheric conditions, soundtrack speed, etc, there may be moments in the video where it may seem slightly out of sync with the music.
You will notice about two thirds of the way through the flight a splice in the video and music and then the quadcopter ascending from the ground- this is because I had to make a quick landing to change out the battery. This was my first attempt at night video as well as capturing fireworks video. Overall, I am pleased with how it turned out but definitely learned a few things for next year such possibly putting a little more distance between the Phantom and the fireworks, get a little higher, maybe adjust the camera settings a little and maybe do some fly arounds.
From everyone at Fire In The Sky, thank you to all who contributed to this spectacular show and to everyone who came out to see the "BIGGER, BADDER & BETTER" display this year.
