- Carl Sagan

We reconnect people

Since the dawn of time, humanity has enjoyed a profound connection with the stars. We once looked up, using celestial bodies to navigate our world and discover our wisdom. Out of this relationship came a sense of belonging, connecting us deeply with each other and with the universe.

We create powerful stories that stir the soul and return our gazes to the sky. Celestial drone art inspires hope and has huge potential as a tool for positive change. There is purpose and integrity in our work. And where possible, let’s bring this gift to communities that can’t afford it. Let’s be a business that reconnects people through a shared sense of wonder.

We are pioneers

Our combination of storytelling, artistry and technical skill means we’re capable of doing this better than the rest. But to remain pioneering takes courage, humility and creativity. We can’t rest on our laurels. And being pioneering means taking risks. Sometimes we’ll get things wrong, but we’ll learn from our mistakes and get it right next time.

Because it’s technical innovation coupled with an unparalleled artistic vision that makes the impossible possible. Yes, it’s often a step into the unknown, and yes, it can feel uncomfortable at times, but it’s an adventure, and every obstacle is an opportunity in disguise. Let’s be a business that celebrates our courageous spirit.

"If you don’t like the way the world is, you change it… one step at a time"
- Marian Wright Edelman

We are responsible

For us, responsibility means being sustainable, inclusive, ethical, caring and transparent in the way we work. Responsibility places wellbeing (both planetary and human) above commercial imperative.

It’s up to us, as employees, to take responsibility and embody these qualities in the way we work with each other and with our clients. Let’s be a business that is as groundbreaking in our holistic culture as our cutting edge drone technology.

"Imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution"
- Albert Einstein

We dream

With bold, artistic imagination comes soul, spectacle and the ability to startle. Because those who can imagine – the artists and the adventurers – skip playfully on the fine line between order and chaos. They imagine the impossible, the beautiful and the unsettling, creating the world anew.

And, of course, imagination can not only create beauty and dazzling drone performances; it can solve problems or find a new path around them. Let’s be a business that promotes the power of imagination.

"When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new"
- Dalai Lama

We listen

With complex and high-pressure projects, collaborating well is essential. When working with each other and our clients, this means letting others speak, listening thoroughly and remaining flexible. Good collaboration is about knowing when to stand your ground and doing so peacefully with clear reasoning.

It’s not always easy because we’re only human after all, but it’s a crucial ingredient in every successful production. Let’s be a business that seeks to understand other points of view.
