Secret Garden Party Show Review

City AM

Scriptwriting

Our in-house team of creatives are award-winning storytellers, drafting narrative scripts for each show. The story is the thread that weaves all the animations in a show together and adds to their impact.

Animating

Our animation department is a world of experimentation where our experts take a vision and translate it into light formations that exist in constant motion to tell a story. Here, concepts and ideas become poetry in motion, with mesmerising results.

Programming & Testing

Our Hive is where animations take flight. It’s the home of our drones, where they’re cared for, programmed and tested by our technical experts. Here is where you’ll witness our drones’ organic behaviours in test flights in the nights’ sky.

 

Piloting

Our pilots set the dream in motion, meticulously positioning the drones for take off and supporting their safe flight throughout the live shows. With extraordinary technical knowledge and meticulous detail, they ensure the show runs smoothly and to the specification of the programmers.

Collaborating

Our collaborations with world-renowned Hollywood actors, poet laureates, writers, directors and indigenous communities, undoubtedly set our shows apart. It takes skillful planning, negotiating and coordinating to bring together international projects and we’re proud to have the right team to pull it off.

Filmmaking

Our award-winning filmmakers translate the magic of our live drone shows into video format to create enchanting content designed for impact. Their direction and filmmaking expertise has created campaign films that touch the soul and recorded drone performances to live on across multiple channels.

Production

Whether drone lights form part of an event or the event itself, a huge amount of planning, collaboration and coordination is required for the delivery of a drone show. Our production team has years of experience working internationally with some of the biggest names in entertainment and are experts in designing and delivering all potential components to a show, from bespoke lighting, audio, video, and pyro effects to live broadcast, filming, staging, and complex logistics challenges.

Innovating

Our dedicated R&D team is second to none and we are constantly working to develop new technologies that open up layers, textures and storytelling possibilities.
