Workshopping with your team, we will explore every aspect of the story you’d like to tell, from brand identity to the nature of your event to the feelings you want to inspire. We will craft visual narrative sequences that tranform these elements into visually captivating motifs. Our creative design team will then produce numerous options in 2D form. These preliminary sketches will serve as reference points – how they can be improved and sequenced, how they will animate, etcetera.
Once we have a collection of motifs and sequences, we will animate these in a 3D environment, allowing you to view the visualization in 3D. You’ll see the constellations as they’ll appear from various vantages, giving a sense of scale and context. From the approved 3D Mockup we move to coding the animations in our guidance software. Algorithms will determine the most efficient trajectories for each drone, ensuring maximum safety and efficiency. These flightpaths are then refined until we have achieved the desired timing, precision and safety parameters.
