Melting a Drone in a Volcano

Melting a Drone in a Volcano

We recently witnessed some amazing drone footage of an Icelandic volcano in action. Photographer Garðar Ólafs went one better by flying his drone directly over the volcano’s vent, sacrificing his equipment to bring us this spectacular footage. We only wish we had an exterior shot of the drone melting.

Icelandic musician Daði Freyr and his band Gagnamagnið made a silly music video filled with pixel art sweaters, strange-looking keytars, awkward dance moves, confetti, and most importantly, a funky and soulful electro-pop track which we’re adding to our heavy rotation list right now.

Most of the time a movie production films on location, they try to return it to the way they found it. But once in a while they just up and leave their set pieces behind, like at this surreal location in Iceland, where Mobile Instinct visited an “ancient” village was built for a movie back in 2009 or so.
