Drone Light Show events 


  • Drone Light show Events is one of America's oldest drone light show production companies, we began in 1993 as video production company working as cinematographers and video editors for major Hollywood productions for 20 years.
     
  • In 2011 we began to experiment with the new technology of drones using them in photography for several Jeep commercials we were producing at the time. Our clients loved the new drone cinematography that we were helping to pioneer in the film industry.
     
  • At the same time we launched the projection mapping company to leverage our expertise in video initially for theme park events, and then moved on to automotive events and other high profile corporate events.

  • In  late 2012 one of our clients asked if we could string several drones together to create a Christmas drone light show for his event. We had no idea if we could and so we worked with our software teams and created a rudimentary autonomous drone show using 30 drones, the audience and our client loved it, and thus our drone show division was born.

  • Over the next few years we went from 30 drones to over 500 and clients such as Sea World, Universal Studios, Kia Motors, Hyundai, Disney, Red Bull and Phillip Morris quickly became our first clients where we created some of the first drone light shows in the United States. Today we have over 8000 drones placed in the hottest markets globally.

  • In 2015 the city of Dubai, asked our company to create a drone light show for their national day celebration and this was our first drone show over 1000 drones, and opened up our international division.
     
  • Within a short time we started working not only in Dubai but also nearby Saudi Arabia and then we expanded to Hong Kong, India and South America. We quickly began to train ground crews locally in these countries as this allowed us to ship and store drone equipment in several countries and maintain a ground crew in these countries as well.
     
  • The Uk was next as we held drone shows for major concert tours there and soon expanded to provide drone shows all over the European Union.
     
  • In late 2017 several theme parks and casinos asked us to do longer term drone shows for their properties, they were looking to do drone shows as many as 3-5 times a day over 6-12 week periods. Because of this we began to offer packages of our drone light show drones for sale, along with on-site training for clients needing to purchase drones for longer term projects.
     
  • We offer from 25 drones all the way to 1000 drones for purchase all with a full 5 year warranty and full tech support to create your own drone light shows at your location.
     
  • Our main team is in Los Angeles California and from there we do all the creative design and work on the drone shows no matter where they are in the world.
     
  • Our creative teams are and have always been working remotely all over the globe, and this allows us to be working nearly 24 hours, 7 days a week for our thousands of brand clients and agencies and cities across the globe.
     
  • When the creative is all set, the client previews the work and the drone code is sent over the internet to the ground team in the relevant area of the world, this method allows us to offer tremendous cost savings over other drone companies as we work from a central location but we have hardware and ground crews local to the major drone markets across the planet.
     
  • Now a few things to note, not all drone light shows are major public events, many of our projects are for private events, corporate events, hotel and condo openings, firework replacement shows during 4th of July, and of course New Years Eve drone light shows too.
     
  • The average drone show in America is 300-500 drones, where in Dubai we average over 1000 drones per show, QR codes with drones and fireworks replacement shows are among the most popular shows we create for our clients.

  • We also are one of the few companies to also offer indoor drone light shows for theme parks, cruise ships, conventions and corporate and private events as well.
     
  • We are Drone Light show Events and we cant wait to make drone magic with you.

    Common questions we get from new clients everyday:

    1. Do you handle all permitting to be able to do this at our location or how does this work?

    -  Yes all drone companies have 5 year FAA license have permits to operate anywhere in America. We handle the NOTAM ( Notice to Airman ) and we handle all this 

    2. If the permit cannot be obtained so we get our deposit back?

    - Yes of course but we and all other drone companies are already permitted with the FAA - there is not a worry about that at all. 

    3. If this event gets cancelled because of Covid - Do we get our deposit back?

    -  In case of COVID 19 related lockdowns or reasons related to COVID, show can be postponed at no cost or refunded back to client in full. 

    4. Do we need to add anything to our insurance and we would want to be named additional insured on your insurance and we will need a copy of that as well

    - Yes there is a standard 5 million dollar policy, we usually add everyone to the COI and all parties just need to have their names and full address and contact person to be added to the list 

    5. Is there any issue with using trademarked art? Any risks here for you/us?

    - It would be ours as we are doing the formations and design work
      
    6. Can you send me information about your staging area needs?

    - We can launch and land up to 2 miles from the performance area, We typically like 1500 square feet, we can use parking lots, parks, or the roof of our transport vans to launch and land. We can also launch from barges on the river or ocean if space is tight
      
    - We handle the power requirements  as whenever we ask for power there is always and issue, so we ran out of trust on this one, so we are self contained

What happens if it rains? Can you fly drones in the rain?

Yes, our drones can fly in all types of weather conditions. We fly in light to medium rain storms and cold and hot weather conditions and wind up to 35 miles per hour. 

How high can the drones fly?

The answer differs by country and depends on the regulation set by the aviation authorities. In the US, the height is 400 feet above ground level. If it is necessary to fly higher to optimize viewing for the audience or to avoid obstruction, we can look into applying for some waivers or exceptions. We have flow up to 1,000 feet, or just over 300 meters.

How safe is a drone light show, what happens if a drone flies away?

Our drones are very safe. If a drone has an issue it will either land in place, or go to a predetermined home point, or our safety pilots can manually take control of a single drone or multiple drones manually as well.

    I have never done a drone show, what can I expect?

    We know it probably is your first time with drones and we want to make it simple, creative and fun for you to work with us.

     

    Drone light shows are created by creating a storyboard

    When we work with clients on a drone light show, we create storyboards to showcase the flow of the drone light show. Our team usually starts with a music sound track and then through creative meetings our artists create detailed storyboard frames showing the flow of the drone light show

    Our drone light shows can create many shapes like faces in the sky

    We then create a sample video that combines the music and storyboard frames into a sample of your specific custom drone light show. In working this way, you and your team or your own clients can have as much creative control prior to the actual programming of the drone light show itself.

    Once the music, and art work is done, our programmers go into a computer to create the model for your show prior to the programming of the drones themselves. In every step of the way you as a client are able to see and make changes prior to programming the drones themselves.

    How much space is required for a drone light show?

  • The space needed is based on the number of drones desired for the drone light show. At a minimum, the site space will be about 25m x 45m with secured fencing around the launch area. The minimum airspace required is 340m x 300m, which includes a double geo-fence and exclusion zones for safety.
  • We can use multiple launch locations if you do not have that much space free so we can utilize your space well.
  • Where did you launch from?

  • It depends on the size of your show - less drones = less space
     
  • We may launch on property or can launch off property we can be up to 2 miles away from show area
  • We may use the roof racks of our transport truck
  • Depends on the amount of drones you have
  • We also may launch in staggered fashion if space is tight, where we simply launch 20-30 drones at a time and then do the show once all the drones are up and flying.
  • How long do you need in order to create the performance program prior to the event?

    • We prefer to have 8 weeks of prep for your show for a custom show
    • We can do a stock show in 2-4 weeks

     Sample Reverse Timeline of your event 

    ( this is a general idea, some shows are made faster and some shows are longer depending on the show type, location, etc )

          • 1-3 days before your event -show rehearsal on site or off site depending on your situation ( can be day before, day of, or other custom time ) 
          • 1-3 days before your event - Arrive at location
          • 1 week to 1 day before your event  ( depending on your location ) - pack and travel to location 
          • 3 - 6 weeks before your event depending on your show type and number of drones - Show programming - creative

    What is the permit process like?

    Once we understand your location and airspace, we will work with you to acquire the necessary permits and authorization to fly the drone light show for your event.  In cases where the desired site is not possible, drone light show company  will work with you on other location options that would be more favorable to getting the necessary aviation permits.
