Muscular Dystrophy Association | "Humble Courage"

Celestial was commissioned as part of Point of the Bluff Vineyards’ popular 4th July celebrations, to create a drone show that would raise awareness and funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA.org).

 

July 2023 / New York, USA / For MDA.org

This inspiring drone light show concluded events over breathtaking views of Keuka Lake with a captivating narrative of human triumph over adversity. The show combined stunning visuals with a powerful soundtrack featuring a moving poem reflecting on the stories those living with Muscular Dystrophy. Combined with the drones’ intricate light formations the show became vessels of inspiration, conveying a powerful message of resilience and hope. 

 

To accompany the show, Celestial filmmakers created “Humble Courage”, an enchanting short film that captures the extraordinary performance of Lily Sander, a determined 15-year-old girl living with Muscular Dystrophy. In a small town in upstate New York, Lily discovers her unique ability to summon the stars through the power of her radiant poetry. The film creates a multi-sensory symphony that celebrates not just the challenges faced by those living with Muscular Dystrophy but also the invincibility of the human spirit that is in us all.

Informative, emotional and inspiring…audience was dazzled!
