Typical process of creating a drone show: from imagination to a visual spectacle

Idea

Every captivating show starts with an idea. Our ideation process takes into consideration the wants, needs and goals of the client and presents them with a unique and bespoke creative solution that audiences will want to capture to rewatch again and again.  

Creative Process

Our creative team led by the Creative Director will turn the idea into a visually captivating show by brainstorming, designing, testing and refining until it is perfect from every aspect. 

Execution

This is where all the pieces come together into one beautiful finished product, our favourite part of the project. The team carry out further testing, setting up the drones, and handing over the approved animation to the Flight Operations team who will upload it into the system, so it can be deployed and tested at Celestial’s flight base.

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Drone Shows

The cost of a drone show can vary significantly depending on a variety of factors, including the number of drones used, the complexity of the performance, the duration of the show, the location, and the specific requirements of the event. Here are some key factors that can influence the cost of a drone show:

Number of Drones: The more drones used in the show, the higher the cost. Small shows with a few drones will be less expensive than large shows with hundreds or even thousands of drones.

Duration: Longer drone shows will generally cost more than shorter ones because they require more battery power and coordination.

Location: The cost of a drone show may vary depending on the location of the event. Shows in remote or challenging locations may require more logistical planning and incur additional expenses.

Licensing and Permits: Some locations may require permits or licences to operate drones, and the cost of obtaining these permits can add to the overall cost.

Animation: If you have specific themes, logos, or branding elements that need to be integrated into the drone show, this can increase the time and cost required for animation.

Technical Support: The cost of technical support, including drone operators, ground crew, and safety personnel, is a significant part of the overall cost.


Insurance: Liability insurance is necessary to cover any accidents or damages that may occur during the show.

Rehearsals and Testing: Testing and rehearsal flights are essential to ensure the safety and success of the show, and they can contribute to the cost.

Additional Effects: Some drone shows may incorporate other special effects, such as fireworks, lasers, or music synchronisation, which can increase the cost.

Hundreds! Since Celestial launched in 2020, we continue to grow our team and that includes growing the number of drones in our swarms. Our drones currently reside at our airfield named ‘The Hive’ and each individual drone is labelled with an alien or celestial-themed name. Find out what makes ‘Nebula’ our most famous drone.

Yes, drones and pyrotechnics can be displayed simultaneously (although we like to see our drone lights as being the more environmentally friendly successors to traditional firework displays).

Yes, advances in technology mean that our drones are increasingly weather agnostic, meaning bad weather becomes less of a reason not to fly. For safety reasons however, it is not recommended to fly drones in very adverse weather conditions such as very high winds or extremely heavy rain.

Yes, our animation process allows for a very true-to-life digital simulation of the drone show for clients to view on screen and there is always the opportunity for clients to view a demo show flight two weeks prior to the show date.

Drone show duration is dictated by the battery runtime of single drone swarm (around 8-10 minutes), however we are able to increase the length of shows by sequentially flying multiple swarms within a fleet.
