Slow Motion Footage of Fireworks Exploding from a Bird’s-Eye View

YouTuber Jeremiah Warren recently decided to try and capture video of fireworks exploding from above (just in time for July 4th). He took three 3-foot balloons, attached a GoPro camera to them, and had the rig float around high in the air while he shot fireworks up at the camera. He has a making-of post over on his blog if you’re interested in learning the specifics of how this was done.
