What happens when Cirque du Soleil, ETH Zurich, and Verity Studios partner to develop a short film featuring quadcopters in a flying dance performance? Introducing “SPARKED: A Live Interaction Between Humans and Quadcopters,” a wonderfully orchestrated four minutes showcasing ten quadcopters moving in sync along with a human to create a whimsical little story. It’s amazing to watch knowing that no CGI, wires, slow-mo or fast-forwards were used; everything you see is real and can be attributed to the quadcopters. Watching such skillful piloting makes me want to go out and practice flying! Watch the video below and see for yourself one of the many ways drones can and will contribute to the entertainment industry.
