In his fresh new music video for Marconi Union's floaty, atmospheric tune, "Weightless," filmmaker Richie Johnston turned a single LED-enabled drone into a ghostly fleet of glowing dancers. Using a video technique similar to Pelle Cass' timelapse crowd compilations, Johnston replicates and repeats the lonely drone's movements, turning a single glowing dot into a massive, floating stream of light. The transformation happens about 90 seconds into the eight-minute video, so sit back, dim the lights, and enjoy.
