Everything you see is real — no CGI, wires, or speed-ups/slow-downs were used in the production of the film.

  • Wow !, ive seen Cirque a few times and always loved the choreography and themes. Never did i think they would be involved in something like this. It was very Cirque but still unique.

    Great job from an unlikely collaboration.

  • Very nice work.

  •  Pretty amazing. No CGI but definitely CGT, computer generated telemetry, in tandem with a MoCap(Motion Capture) system. Looking forward to seeing this kind of flight minus the MoCap in the not-too-distant future.

  • A great video showcasing the power of drones that never shows a drone, quite genius indeed!

  • That was very cool.

  • great piloting skills!
