Video: Red Ones and helicopter mounts in action

A behind-the-scenes video that's as much fun as the video they're shooting.

There's a new video out for the Seattle-based Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band song "Albatross, Albatross, Albatross." I know, Crave isn't a music blog, but I figured you guys who are really into gear would appreciate the behind-the-scenes video--not because this stuff is normally interesting, but this particular video features some really awesome gear.

You'll immediately notice a duo of Red One cameras being used. For those not in the know, Red's flagship camera shoots ultra-high-def video that rivals film in most ways. You can't buy a TV to play back its video in its full size yet. But that's not the really cool part.

The real fun comes in around the 49-second mark, when you get a shot of the AerialPan remote control camera mount. The custom-made helicopter does something new: it makes HD cameras fly. If you're a film geek, you're already drooling. I can't imagine there was any boring downtime on this shoot.

This post was updated at 2:45 p.m. PDT to clarify the type of camera mounted on the helicopter.
