To create a sensational buzz surrounding the season finale of Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power, we knew it had to have massive impact given the crowd and importance of the spectacle. In our Frome HQ, animators perfected the flight pattern for our drones, designing our flight imagery to perfectly complement the soundtrack – taken from show itself. We worked on a scale that was designed to impress. 500 drones ascended to the skies during the ground-breaking 200-metre-wide, 8-minute phenomenon, witnessed by a crowd of celebrities, influencers and VIPs in Lagos, marking a moment of true innovation in Nigeria as West Africa’s first ever drone show.
It was an honour to design West Africa’s first ever drone show and to be involved in the biggest TV show in history. As Tolkien fans, it was a true privilege.
