Drone Show. Presentation "EcoBall" for Sibur & Wilson

It’s hard to combine drones and sports, unless, you’re thinking about shooting at drones as a target practice…

We, however, found another way – we created and staged a fully automatic drone performance, the drones pretended to be…… basketballs! The show, designed in association with the Interactive Lab and “PitCH Group,” was held during VTB United League All-Star Game in Saint Petersburg. For the first time in Russia, a 12-drone-choreography (exactly the…
