Utah-based filmmaker Daniel Riley caught the attention of netizens back in November 2015 when he developed “the world’s brightest flashlight“—a 1000W LED strip that gave off a ridiculous 90,000 lumens of light. This time, the video buff is taking his invention to an even higher level, literally.
In his latest video, Riley attaches the glowing panel onto a Freefly Alta octocopter and maneuvers the powerful contraption through the night sky. The drone projects blinding light onto a covey of trees for a captivating scene and even makes its way across a bridge—creating a plethora of sinister yet stunning shadows as it zips from one end to the other. Suffices it to say, the results are pretty breathtaking.
