This is the incredible moment a drone captures the inner workings of a Minneapolis bowling alley in a single take. 

Jay Christensen, 25, who is an aerial cinematographer, shot the breathtaking video of the city’s Bryant Lake Bowl and Theater with an FPV drone.  

The video, titled Bryant Lake Bowl Fly Through, starts off with the drone entering the through the bowling alley’s front door as it was held open by a man. 

The drone then zips past people who are bowling before entering the area behind the pins.

It captured parts of the machinery moving pins around before zooming back out and between a man’s legs. 

The drone recorded some folks having a drink at the bar and others who were sitting in the bowling alley’s theater.  

In an interview with DailyMail.com Christensen and the video’s director, Anthony Jaska, 35, who are both from Minneapolis, broke down their process for capturing all of the aforementioned moments in just one shot. 

‘It’s a one-take, so we’re using a very small FPV racing drone that you’re able to fly from the exterior of a building all the way through the interior of the building in one shot and in the meantime tell a story using a sound design,’ Christensen said. 

Christensen, who has been working with different types of drones since 2014, noted that the sounds in the video weren’t recorded live, but they were recorded in post-production and edited together. 

Jaska and Christensen said they did the project for free because they wanted to ‘help support’ a local business that has been struggling with the effects of COVID-19 shutdowns and restrictions. 

‘Hopefully people will remember all the great times they’ve had at this establishment and come back in,’ Christensen said, adding: ‘It was a really awesome win-win for both of us because we got to have a fun time creating a cool project and shot and hopefully they’ll get a lot of exposure and business as they reopen.’

‘I think the message that we’re trying to get out there is support local businesses, especially as we get back to normal,’ Jaska said.

Jaska said that before Christensen shot the footage with the drone, they visited the establishment to scope out what kind of scenes they wanted to create. 

‘It takes a great deal of skill to actually fly behind the pins or underneath the ball feeder and then we make adjustments and see what we can get away and finally we get the take and people can go home,’ Jaska.  

Christensen said maneuvering behind the pins was the portion of the video that intimated him the most. 

‘I’d say the hardest was coming in that front door to start just because it was windy outside and trying to coordinate with our people outside,’ Christensen said. 

The whole production was put together in less than a week, Jaska and Christensen said.
