Just in time for the fourth, we present Jeremiah Warren’s slow motion aerial view of exploding fireworks, created with three 3′ balloons, a GoPro camera, and Wi-Fi BacPac.
My idea was to buy a giant helium balloon and tie it down with two strings, the GoPro camera would be suspended below the balloon. I wasn’t sure if I was going to do this video. It wasn’t until GoPro released their Wi-Fi BacPac that I decided to go through with the idea. The Wifi BacPac allowed you to remotly control your GoPro camera and to view the video live on your iPhone or iPad. I knew this would be perfect because I’d be able to see how the shots were framed and if I was getting the fireworks on camera.
