Filming ‘Star Wars’ Dogfights With Drones Is A Brilliant Idea [Video]

1

Corridor Digital used drones mounted with various cameras to recreate a Star Wars X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter dogfight that’s fit for the big screen.

Digital effects were used to transpose 3D-printed X-Wing and TIE Fighter cockpits into the production, which shows the craft twisting and turning through a mountainous landscape. Even drone crash footage was used to represent TIE Fighters being shot down.

Grab a barf bag and check out the video below (along with a look behind the scenes).
