Whoever is flying that drone is EXCELLENT at it.

I believe they are running the play back music at different speeds throughout the video while recording. Like a portion of the song is normal speed which flows into a section that is 3/4 normal speed which flows into a section that is 1/2 normal speed. This allows the band and dancers to follow the music and slow themselves down without any issues. Then in post when they sync it all back to 100% speed you have what looks like stop motion in certain sections. Other bands have employed this in the past, namely MUTEMATH.
I've never heard of mutemath. But the slow down / speed up trick makes sense.
I still think there's post-production trickery for the end part with all the red green blue yellow umbrellas.
The part that starts about 3:30 and kicks into overdrive at 3:48.
I'm sure you are right about that. Post-production trickery for the win!
The ending of this video makes me wonder if it's actually done with people!
hahaha! i was just coming here to post this video! it's so badass!!!!
yes, the drone flight is amazing, and it's all one shot?!? (just think of the planning involved!)
I believe it's all one shot, yes.
I wonder if there was post-production for the ending part because it's just too perfect.
But the drone does an amazing job of stabilizing itself to take the video in mid-air.
